A group of Australian promoters have banded together to put on a fundraiser not to be missed! With 10 hours of live music, raffles, burlesque performances, beer and barbecue. The show will be held at the Tote Hotel in Collingwood, Victoria on the 20th of February. Proceeds will go to the Australian Red Cross to support the recovery of the many communities that were affected by the recent weather.

Here is their touching mission statement:

”  As we are all well aware, yet another natural disaster has devastated the country. Over recent weeks rains have caused havoc across many parts of Australia, and it’s not over yet.
Human and animal lives have been lost, houses destroyed, businesses, farms, and Aussie produce have all been affected, and communities have been torn apart.
The nationwide damage bill is expected to be in the billions.
There is a long road to recovery.
But as Aussies do, we come together and help things get back on track!!!!”

To view more details about the event please visit their Facebook Event Page.

Not in Australia but still wanna help. Donate directly to the Australian Red Cross.

Sin in Linen has donated a $100 gift certificate for the event so make sure to enter the raffle.
