The call has gone out for support for Taylors Lakes Lions Club’s charity gala dinner to raise money to help fight childhood cancer.

The club will host its first gala dinner fundraiser at Taylors Lakes next month with all proceeds going to the Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation.

Taylors Lakes Lions’ secretary Phil Clinkaberry said supporting the foundation was very important to the club and fitted well with its values.

“As a club, we have a number of key priorities that we support and those include two in particular – health and young people,”
Mr Clinkaberry said.

“Our aim for this event is to raise as much as we can for the Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation, which donates 100 per cent of funds raised to finding a cure for all childhood cancers – a cause that I know many would see as a most worthwhile and valuable one. Our initial target is $1500, but we reckon with the community’s help we can go beyond that.”

Extra fundraising activities, such as a raffle and a silent auction, will be held on the night.

The Taylors Lakes Lions Club gala dinner will be held on Friday, May 25, at Taylors Lakes Hotel from 7.30pm.
