IF YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE
TSUNAMI RELIEF, AND YOU WANT TO
LESBIAN COMMUNITY, HERE'S YOUR
CHANCE. A LOTL PREVIEW.
For one night only the Athenaeum in
Melbourne will open its doors to present
one of the funniest, finest nights of music,
comedy and dance in the form of a
fundraising gala. With stars such as Bob
Downe, Judith Lucy, Katie Underwood,
Tania Doko, Slinkee Minx, Nelly Thomas
and Ethel Chop appearing in the line-up,
the audience are guaranteed a night of
entertainment and laughter.
The HelpOUT Gala is brought to the stage
by Melbourne's Rainbow Alliance for
Asia (RAFA). RAFA is an alliance formed
as a result of GLBTIQ community groups
wanting to work together to benefit the
victims of the December Tsunami disaster.
From the first meeting it was decided that
they would work together to create a
fundraising entertainment night where the
profits raised through ticket sales, bucket
run and raffle draw will be granted to two
organisations that work directly with the
GLBTIQ communities in South East Asia.
The gala night will be the climax to a six-
month campaign amongst the Melbourne
GLBTIQ community and will maintain a
focus on sustained support to the
devastated regions. HelpOUT will donate
all profits to the global organisations
Equal Ground and the Rainbow World
Fund for Tsunami Relief, who will utilise
the grants in Sri Lanka.
Through their many generous sponsors
and performers RAFA are able to present
an amazing line-up of entertainment at a
cost of only $20 ($15 concession) per
head. So be generous and help out by
attending this worthy event. The bar
opens from 6.30pm, showtime is 7.30pm.
