Dîner en Rouge

Diner en rouge 2019 header

Dîner en Rouge is Mayor Karen Williams' annual fundraiser for Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence. Now in its fifth year, this event has already helped raise more than $260,000 thanks to the generosity of the Redlands City community.

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 is proud to again be working with Zonta clubs, Soroptimist International, Rotary Club of Cleveland, Redland Foundation and local domestic and family violence service advocates on this year’s Dîner en Rouge. 

The dinner will be held on Saturday 18 May 2019 to coincide with Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month. Hosted by television journalist Heather Foord, the event will feature award-winning author and domestic violence prevention advocate Rebecca Poulson.
