Dîner en Rouge

Dîner en Rouge,  Mayor Karen Williams' annual fundraiser for Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence, will be held on Saturday 12 May 2018 to coincide with Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.

Redland City is a truly beautiful place, however, our residents suffer from domestic and family violence. 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.

About the event

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.  

All proceeds from Dîner en Rouge go towards supporting Redlanders affected by domestic and family violence. The event has so far raised $220,000 since its inception in 2014.
