Men’s health under the spotlight with Movember and a Family Fun Night Out
Team Dimboola has been busy raising funds for men’s health this month for Movember.
To conclude the month long fundraiser, organisers will be holding a Family Fun Night Out at the Dimboola Rowing Club this Saturday Evening.
The Movember website for Team Dimboola is going crazy with donations with Dimboolian’s donating over $2,000 already towards the cause. This year has a focus on mental health and the Movember fundraiser will support Beyondblue.
The Family Fun Night Out is for the whole family to enjoy a social get together and help raise funds for men's health issues, that hit hard in the Wimmera such as cancer and mental health.
Event organiser Jodie Warner said, “what a better way to spend the first evening of Summer than a barbeque down at the river, with lots of fun activities, while at the same time raising funds for a worthy cause.”
The volunteers from the Dimboola Rowing Club will be working behind the bar on the night, so we all can enjoy a cool drink.
One of the fun parts of the evening will be a mystery auction and participants can expect a few laughs as bidders discover what they won with their bid.
“It will be anyone’s guess what the successful bidder may win,” said Mrs Warner.
There will also be prises given out for the best Mo, Runner up prize for the best Mo and still waiting to grow my Mo prize.
Dimboola has been really generous over the years with the Movember fundraiser.
“I like to thanks all the people that have gone out and shaved this year for the Team Dimboola and those that have got on board and collected donations rough the website. As of last Monday morning we have raised a total of $2,029 which is an amazing effort. Last year we only raised $630 through the website,” she said.
(Today the tally has grown to $2344.00)
“I also send a thank you out to all the Dimboola traders for getting behind such a great cause, your donations mean so much to us, as it helps raise some extra money for the cause.”
After you’ve all had a good feed and some fun with the auction a presentation will take place, followed by tunes happening, so everyone can relax and end Movember on a high.
The Movember Family Fun Night and the total donation from the website will be published in the next edition of the Dimboola Banner.
