Dîner en Rouge, Mayor Karen Williams' annual fundraiser for Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence, was held on Saturday 12 May 2018 to coincide with Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.
Redland 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.
It is hoped the fundraising effort, which shows the commitment of the Redlands community to ending family violence, will entice the state government to partner with Council and domestic violence advocates to provide more crisis accommodation in the city.
