Australia Day Flood Fundraiser for Vancouverites

Australia Day Flood Fundraiser for Vancouverites

THERE’S been murmurs about such an event since my heartfelt Queensland Floods post a week or so ago.

And now, with the generous support of the fine team at The Donnelly Group, I can now tell you all about a special flood fundraising event I am throwing at REPUBLIC on Vancouver’s Granville Street this coming Wednesday, 26th January, 2011 – AUSTRALIA DAY!


A HUGE thanks to all those who came out last night to the AUSTRALIA DAY @ REPUBLIC event. It was a tonne of fun and we managed to raise $300 to donate to the “Premiers Disaster Relief Appeal”. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

For those of you who couldn’t make it out, you can still make donations online. Check the details at the bottom of this post for more information.

Here’s what you need to know:

A. Tickets will be available as of this Friday, 21st January.

Here’s how you can get your hands on tickets:

  1. Track me down sometime over the next week in the lead up to Wednesday night. Good luck!
  2. Enter your name and the number of tickets you want in the form below. You will be placed on a guest list at the door on Wednesday night and you’ll be required to pay for your tickets ($10 each) then.

Each ticket will inclue your first drink* FREE thanks to the generous guys and gals at REPUBLIC! It’s important that you arrive before 11pm or you will be subjected to Republic’s regular cover charge on top of the ticket price.
