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.
Be entertained by the Redland City Choir on arrival. Enjoy the sounds of renowned vocal group Tenori who will bring their sense of fun and sophistication to classics from the worlds of opera, jazz, music theatre, and dance the night away with the very talented Honey Music.
All proceeds from Dîner en Rouge will go towards supporting Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence. But we still need to do more – we need to educate our community and raise awareness of existing, enhanced and new services on offer.
- $175 each
- $1700 for a group of 10 tickets (includes GST)
