Valued member Lisa Jamieson from the Boulevard Café has called on the support of Business Victor Harbor to help her run the ‘Winter Warmer Fundraiser’ event to raise much needed money and support for the homeless in our local community. This rescheduled event will be held at the Roos Club on Friday 27th August at 6:00pm
Homelessness on the Fleurieu has almost doubled in the last 12 months! People of all ages and backgrounds are at risk.
According to Mission Australia, homelessness is caused by a range of complex systemic, structural and individual factors including social disadvantage, financial hardship, poor health and more. Vulnerable people experiencing or at risk of homelessness can also grapple with a range of mental health issues, alcohol or other drug dependencies and relationship instability. Structural factors such as the shortage of social and affordable housing options contribute to the risk of homelessness. People can experience homelessness as a result of a change in circumstances such as a relationship breakdown, escaping domestic violence, loss of a job or death of a loved one. (Mission Australia, 2021)
Tickets are now on sale to the event and for only $35 per head, attendees will enjoy a 3-course meal and live music from ‘Sway’. There will be raffles and an auction, with 100% of all proceeds raised going to the Fleurieu’s homeless. The event will be MC’d by Ian Wright from Happy FM and Peter Hooper from South Coast Realty will be the auctioneer.
Shopping items can be dropped off to South Coast Realty or the Boulevard Café.
We are also calling on the business community to further show support by providing items, products and/or services that we can auction on the evening. Should you have any auction items to donate, or to find out how you can further support Lisa in her fundraising efforts, please contact The Boulevard Café on 8552 5092 or email .
