Dîner en Rouge

Dîner en Rouge is Redland City Mayor Karen Williams' annual fundraiser for Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence.

More than $330,000 has been raised by Dîner en Rouge since it began five years ago in 2014.

The 2019 event was held at the secret location of the Cleveland Showgrounds on 18 May 2019 and was attended by a record number of 250 locals and visitors dressed in red and white for the cause.

Redland City is a truly beautiful place, but, like everywhere else, we suffer from domestic and family violence. In fact, our city accounts for around three per cent of all domestic and family violence protection orders applied for across Queensland...that’s more than 600 a year and more than 12 victims each week. 

Redland City Council works with Zonta clubs, Soroptimist International, Rotary Club of Cleveland, Redland Foundation and local domestic and family violence service advocates on Dîner en Rouge. 

The 2019 event was hosted by television journalist Heather Foord, while the guest speaker was award-winning author and domestic violence prevention advocate Rebecca Poulson.

Thank you to sponsors and all those who attended and supported the cause.
