The downstairs meetings are always the place to be to learn about and contribute to the real work of the club, and last week was no exception. We were delighted to welcome our newest scholar Alissa to the club for the first time, and look forward to getting to know her better over the coming weeks. We had updates from the Youth team about our efforts to fund two Kiara College students to attend the year 10 school camp. The Bali project is also in full swing, with three ROC stars preparing to travel to the Balinese school in April to establish a relationship on which to build the Window to the World program in future. We were also excited to learn that a marketing manager has been found for Climb for a Smile.
However, the focus of the meeting was the One In A Million event which will be held this Thursday evening, 30 March.
We are well on our way to filling the banquet hall of the University Club and can't wait to share the night with you. If you haven't secured your ticket yet, we urge you to beat the last minute rush and purchase yours today. Go to the event website ... And don't stop at just one ticket. This is our opportunity to shine, to show off the best of ROC to friends and family, and an excellent excuse to bring your partner or a friend for an evening of fun, laughter and the chance to take home one out our amazing auction or raffle items. These include a stunning One In A Million limited edition print, a sculpture from the creator of Eliza, and a unique aboriginal dot painted bike assembled on the night by the Dismantle team.
Enjoy a sleep in on Thursday morning, and commit the hour and a half you would usually spend at the meeting to attending One In A million instead. Finish the day off in style with cocktails and canapés, and help the team at Dismantle continue their amazing work with youth who have fallen through the cracks.
Please bring as many people as you can to guarantee the 150 guests we need to ensure the event is a resounding success. Let's start the year with a bang and set a precedent for an amazing year of fundraising ahead. See you there!
