Life Without Barriers are supporting and fundraising for the Ngunnawal Aboriginal Corporation, in order to purchase Otitis Media Equipment.
Otitis Media is a major source of ear disease in Indigenous children. It often begins within weeks of birth, has repeated episodes and can persist into adolescence.
Hearing loss can lead to delayed speech and educational development. The long term effect of these delays is substantial on the wellbeing of Indigenous children.
The Ngunnawal Aboriginal Corporation is proposing to employ trained personnel to undertake Otitis Media testing for Aboriginal young people, within the schools and colleagues of our region.
The approximate cost of the Otitis Media Equipment is over $10,000 and our region, Southern NSW & ACT, are hoping to raise half of those funds through our fundraiser, aptly named ‘A Night of Collaboration’.
LWB Southern NSW & ACT, would like to cordially invite members of our local community our event; a night of live music, great food and entertainment, raffles, lucky doors prizes and a silent auction, to raise funds for this vital piece of medical equipment. The event is scheduled to take place on Friday 23rd June at the City Beach Function Centre, 1 Marine Drive, Wollongong. The attire is formal.
The evening will begin with canapes on arrival from 6:30pm for a 7:15pm start for dinner and desert, followed by entertainment.
We are asking $100 per ticket or splurge for a good cause and book a table of 10 for $800. For further details and to book please go to: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/a-night-of-collaboration-tickets
Alternatively, if you are interested in being a sponsor for the event, or are able to provide a donation for the prizes on the night, please contact Stella Thorndike on (02) 4260 2200 or email Stella.Thorndike@lwb.org.au
Please note 100% of proceeds up to and including $5,000 are going to the Ngunnawal Aboriginal Corporation for the Otitis Media Equipment. Any residual proceeds will go towards the implementation of Cultural Camps for children and young people in Out of Home Care in Southern NSW.
