    || NATIONWIDE FUNDRAISER - MAY ||

    We will be supporting and fundraising (cash donations) for Share the Dignity during the month of May. 

    Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month is held during May each year to raise community awareness and promote a clear message that domestic and family violence will not be tolerated in our communities.
    Support our families, our mother's and our children. Make them feel safe, supported and protected. Give them hope! Show them we care!

    The money that we will raise in May 2018 will go specifically towards their #pinkbox Dignity Vending Machines. They cost $9,000 each to create, install and maintain and they provide FREE sanitary items for women most in need. They are strategically placed around Australia in areas that are thought to be needed most.

    Note: changed to a Friday, hopefully that works well for many!

    Melbourne City Ballet’s Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo re-imagines Carmen to Bizet’s famous score to bring to life an evocative opera ballet paying homage to the well known Spanish inspired tragedy.

    Carmen tells the story of a city policeman, Don Jose, whose mother calls him to return home to marry childhood sweetheart, Micaela, but a chance encounter with the enchanting gypsy girl, Carmen, leads the pair into a relationship of both passion and destruction.
