For those who are not all christmas partied out and can fit another great event into your calendar, or have a keen interest in watching local celebrities battle it out in charity karaoke this could be the event of the year.
The Our Wellness foundation is a Canberra based charity formed in 2008 that raises and distributes its money locally. All funds raised are used to benefit the residents of Canberra and surrounding areas and to create long term legacies that enhance the health and wellness of our local community.
The foundation supports strategies, services and research that:
Promote individual, family and community health and wellbeing.
Help our health system provide care and interventions at all levels – from community and primary to acute and post acute care.
Ensure our health care is based on the best available evidence.
Strengthen partnerships between health care providers, consumers and the community.
The upcoming celebrity singing bee will double as a fund raiser for the foundation, to fund future grants, as well as featuring the announcement of the recipients of the grant program. The ACT Health Minister, Katy Gallagher, will present over $50,000 to local programs on the foundations behalf.
The evening represents a great opportunity for a pre Christmas get together, with a wide range of entertainment, food and drink at a reasonable cost. Have fun whilst supporting your local charity.
