Over the last few years, my colleague Hon John Gardner MP and I have hosted a community quiz night to raise funds for the Eastern Adelaide Domestic Violence Service (EADVS). The EADVS provides crisis accommodation as well as counselling, educational programs, support groups and much more for women and children in our local area who have been affected by domestic and family violence. Much of the work of the Service is only possible as a result of the generosity of individuals and local businesses.
Last year, over 300 people showed their support at our annual quiz night and we successfully raised $10,300 for the EADVS. This year however, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host our annual quiz night. To continue to support the amazing work that the EADVS do, we have decided that we will run an online fundraising ‘telethon’ instead.
Please take a moment to support this outstanding service by donating whatever amount you can by following this link here. Every cent donated through the MyCause Page goes directly to the EADVS. We are hoping to raise $5,000 by the end of November and appreciate any support you are able to offer. If your local business or community group would like to make a public donation, then John and/or I would be happy to visit to acknowledge your support in person, and we’ll update you all on our progress throughout the month. Please also share this page with your networks and friends.
