BBQ DINNER

The Rotary Clubs of the Blue Mountains (Blackheath, Katoomba, Upper Blue, Central Blue, Springwood and Lower Blue) have got together to support a family in our community who needs some help. We would like to invite you to a special BBQ dinner for a special boy, Joel Hart, on Saturday 4th November.

Joel is thirteen years old and lives in the Blue Mountains. He suffers from muscular dystrophy, which means he needs a powered wheelchair and appropriate vehicle to get around and to get on with his busy life. His mum Belinda also suffers from multiple sclerosis, which puts a lot of pressure on the family. We are raising money to fund a vehicle that can safely transport Joel around. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has already funded the wheelchair and will pay for the car modifications.

“At the moment my chair is only kept at school because we can’t transport it around. Having a car that my whole family can travel is really important to me,” Joel said. The family consists of Mum and Dad, two sisters and Nan.

“Joel has a great outgoing personality, he is a delightful young man and also a talented pen and ink artist,” said Rotary spokesperson Margie Gargan.

Current fundraising is about $25,000 and we have around $14,000 to go. With your generous support, we hope to meet that mark at the "Transport for Joel BBQ Dinner" on Saturday 4th November.

We can promise you a lively, enjoyable and entertaining evening and hope you can make it! This event will sell out quickly.

Online Tickets are $40 (incl GST) plus booking charge. As this is a fundraiser drinks are not included in the ticket price but can be purchased from the bar.

There will be raffles, lucky door prizes and silent auctions throughout the night. We will also raffle a couple of Joel's drawings like the wolf on the banner photo. The dinner will be held at the new and picturesque Escarpments Estate (on the site of the former Katoomba Golf Club). This exciting new development officially opens the following week and we thank Ed Fernon and his team for giving us a sneak peek beforehand and helping with this unique community event.

WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT ON THE NIGHT?

We would love to see you there of course - but if you are unable to make it and would still like to show your support for Joel via a donation, please visit the Rotary link below. Donations through this site are tax deductible.
