The Clare’s Angels are holding a New Year’s Eve Ball and Charity Auction to raise money for Orana Early Childhood Intervention and the Australian Rett Syndrome Study.
Organiser Jane Diffey’s daughter Clare died in August after being diagnosed with rare neurological disorder Rett Syndrome when she was two years old.
Girls with the condition are referred to as ‘silent angels’ because they have difficulty with communication and movement.
Around 170 people are attending the event, but Mrs Diffey said limited tickets were still available at www.123tix南京夜网.au/events/new-years-eve-angel-ball-2014.
The $150 ticket includes dinner, drinks, entertainment and transport to and from the event.
Buses will leave from The Castlereagh Hotel in Dubbo and Narromine Hotel at 6pm.
Mrs Diffey said the response from the community had been incredible and more than 100 businesses had donated to the event.
“If we could beat what we raised last time,$48,000,it would be amazing,” she said.
For those unable to attend, a silent action is underway at galabid南京夜网/angels with everything from a Samoan family holiday to a Bunning’s voucher.
Two raffles and two voucher draws are raising additional funds. Information can be found at the Clare’s Angels Facebook page.
Mrs Diffey said both Orana Early Childhood Intervention and the Australian Rett Syndrome Study played an important role in Clare’s life.
