We are hosting monthly fundraisers that raise awareness through your support and donations for a cause, on a quarterly basis. We hope to find the right organizations through public opinion and research in our attempt to make a difference, collectively. Featuring a repertoire of artists, musicians, performers, Djs, producers, singers etc, rotating on a monthly basis in hope to express our love for those a little less fortunate, and in desperate need.
Quarter 1 (July, August, September) : Autism Awareness
Essentially, (it is a free party) we are not charging entry at this gig, whilst there is an optional 'Gold Coin Donation' that you can opt-in for (by donating $2 or more). The funds raised therefrom will be forwarded in full, to an organization supporting autistic children so together we can help the cause, by opting in. If you turn up at the gig, we won't be expecting you to donate if you don't wish to, and you will get free entry (no questions asked) as we would simply love to see you dance and help us spread awareness (by donating money and/ or your time to this amazing cause).
Meanwhile, we will be researching and looking for an organization that seems as transparent as possible in its activities, so we can ensure that all funds generated are forwarded in full (without any administration costs being deducted). Therefore, we welcome your opinion on which organization to go for, so we can make an informed decision and take a small step in helping the people that need it most. We feel very passionately about this cause, and think there is not enough help for our autistic friends and their Australian families. So, please feel free to give us your inputs on this matter as we would really like to extend our friendly hand towards these great beings with special needs.
