Docklands digs deep for bushfire appeal

Docklands digs deep for bushfire appeal Image

Two of Docklands’ favourite restaurants teamed up with local businesses to help raise more than $13,000 for the Victoria Bushfire Appeal on January 15.

Despite inclement weather forcing the fundraiser to be relocated indoors to the upstairs function space at Berth from Cargo’s beer garden next door at New Quay Promenade, the event proved a major success.

A live auction, led by Lucas real estate agent Mark Sutherland, attracted some wonderful prizes donated by local businesses, while a large raffle saw few leaving empty handed as the team at Berth put on a delicious spread of food and beverages for guests.

Docklands Sports Club (DSC) was also one of several local community groups that came together in the wake of the bushfire crisis.

At short notice, the club organised a range of activities on January 19 where attendees were asked to contribute $10 to bushfire relief.

The club also ran a raffle that included a number of donated prizes including a double-pass to the Australian Open and other sports equipment.

Altogether, DSC raised over $500 on the day, which was matched by a local business on the day to help bring the total to over $1000.

President Carina Parisella said it was the club’s small way of contributing to the crisis that had wreaked havoc in south-eastern Australia.

On the day, the club held cricket, soccer and American football clinics at Ron Barassi Snr Park, while other locals enjoyed indoor yoga classes.
