Inglewood Fundraiser Update







A special report from Dan, BURN Arts’ Madam Secretary and Modifyre 2019 Medics co-lead. Back in February, some spectacular members of the BURN Arts community threw a fundraiser to raise money for drought stricken town of Inglewood. We're indebted to the town of Inglewood, without their persistent support Modifyre would never have found its home...

On a rain soaked day in mid-October the Greenslopes Bowls Club was teleported back to the 1970's thanks to an incredible Communal Effort!! There was disco dancing, delicacies galore and pinball wizardry... A magician wow'ed the crowd, all before charming his way to a Lipsync Championship over the Queen of Pop HERSELF !

In other words, we made a bunch of money (About $2700!!), and that has now all been distributed to the Inglewood Community through our local partner's; Care Goondiwindi's Stay Strong and the Inglewood Lions Club. Debbie Elliott of Goondiwindi Regional Council expressed her gratitude for our efforts, "The extra money you supplied will go a long way to build resilience in our community which has been affected by the drought."

Thank you to all our amazing volunteers and organizers and participants who helped bring this event together, it's been greatly appreciated by the Inglewood and Goondiwindi Communities <3

Now! If you didn't get to join us in Green Slopes, you can still have a good time AND support the locals of Inglewood in February when we invade the town, hit up some lawn bowls, have a few pints at the Royal and sing a Pub Chior till Last Call. Come join us for some camping and community spirit on the 9th and 10th of Feb as we bring our relief efforts direct to the community!!

And check out our sweet dance moves one more time . . . Disco Inferno!
