Community keen to show support - 250515

 

On Friday night as 120 people packed the Portland Football Netball Cricket Club function room for a Nepalese-themed fundraising dinner for displaced Nepalese communities.

 

 

 

The sold out event raised $4000 on the night, providing direct support to several destroyed villages of the April 25 earthquake.Event spokesperson Di Burch said she was blown away by the response and support of the community."Friday night was absolutely amazing. Portland is so very generous. We were sold out within days and I think we could have sold another 200 tables for the night based on the communities interest."Mrs Burch praised the donations of food, music, wait staff and room hire, as well as the generosity of patrons on the night."This far exceeded our expectations. I think it’s because so many people in Portland have a deep connection to Nepal.
