Urgent fundraising for Unity in the Community Gig
This is a call out to all Truth members to dig deep and help the cause to secure this wonderful community event, as you all know we holding our Unity in the Community Big Gig on the 28th May the week after the federal election and focus is about bringing everyone together in unity...we have secured Jigamy Farm as the location for the gig and we have tentatively secured Matt Davis and his band Jimmy Pants & the Kashmir Plants, Matt Davis is rated as one of Australia's finest rock n blues guitarists...not only that, we have a stellar line up of local bands which includes some of our very own Truth members.. like Ree Liddell and her highly accomplished band "changoTRee" and Paul Leeder with his Candelo Blues Club band and a very supportive Gary Jones with his band Mojo, Sam Stevenson and his band "Don't come Monday's" plus Howlin' Mitch and also an opening ceremony with our local Koori brothers and Nathan Lygon to play some Didgereedoo...and possibly others...this make for an event that will be absolutely memorable and potentially perpetual....Our new normal
We have done a costing analysis and it will cost approximately $10k which includes hall fees, security, bands and equipment, insurance etc. The hall is a great venue with excellent acoustics and can accommodate an estimated 500 we are looking to sell tickets at $40 per adult $ 100 per family (2 adults & two kids) or $ 20 for children under 16
The thing is we need to pay for the main band.. as in Matt Davis and the sound and lighting crew up front and possibly the hall in advance as well...these cost are basically a total of $5000 and we need to pay the bucks before the end of this week....so we are asking that everyone at a minimum makes a pledge and commits to at least buying a ticket or pledging more and receiving a ticket and either reclaiming your pledge back less your ticket cost or just donating your pledge to the group...how's that as clear as mud? Donate as much as you can and you will be allocated a ticket or as many as you would like to buy...and if you have contributed more than the cost of the tickets you want you can either be refunded the surplice or donate it to the groups fund...
