Event description

Description

DATE CHANGE to Wednesday 29 November

This night has been organised to help raise awareness about the importance of mental health support networks and the issues faced by those in support networks. Secondly we hope to raise money to directly support the Collingwood Knights Reclink Football Team. The Collingwood Knights initiative is a local initiative that uses football as a conduit to help those disadvantaged financially, mentally or just because of certain circumstances. What we hope attendees will gain out of the evening is a greater knowledge about coping with or helping others cope with mental health issues. The notion that we are not alone is paramount.

On the evening we will hear from a number of people from all sides of the fence:

Chris McGeachan from the Collingwood Knights and a local member of the Victorian Police Force regarding what the Collingwood Knights stand for and how they go about what they do.

Momo Komba a well known musician from the group Diafrix who has not only played around the world but has subsequently become a mentor for disadvantaged young people.

Adrian Parisi - Owner and presenter from the Blue Print Initiative. The Blue Print Initiative is a not for profit dedicated to help people of all ages to lead mentally fit lives through teaching tools and strategies to help cope with mental illness.

Elizabeth Cambage - Australian Olympic representative and arguably the best female basketballer in the world. Liz has shown her resiliance at the peak of her sport and continues to dominate at the highest level with the Melbourne Boomers in the WNBL.

There will be a silent Auction for all kinds of collectables for example, signed sporting memorabilia.

Please note that the entire ticket price (minus booking fee) will be donated to the Collingwood Knights and includes a burger, sides and drinks for the evening and a limited edition tshirt.
