More than 280 people attended the 2021 Dîner en Rouge, a live stage production themed Musique en Rouge, on Saturday 6 November.
Dîner en Rouge is Redland City Mayor Karen Williams’ premier annual fundraiser event to raise awareness and funds to help prevent domestic and family violence.
Redland City Council was proud to again work with Zonta Clubs, Soroptimist International Bayside, Rotary Club of Cleveland, Redland Foundation and local domestic and family violence service advocates on this year’s Dîner en Rouge.
Funds raised through sponsorship and attendance at this event will help to ensure local community organisations can continue their great work and deliver assistance when and where it is most needed.
Since Dîner en Rouge began seven years ago, almost $400,000 has been raised for local domestic and family violence services, thanks to the generosity of guests at the event, benefactors, sponsors, event partners, and everyone who has supported the initiative.
