Colleen Traves, the local co-ordinator for Light the Night was very happy to accept a cheque for $1000 from Darryl Fliedner, President of the Lions Club on Friday. Darryl said, “From day one, the Lions Club has been involved in this fundraiser and we always run the bbq for the night, with all proceeds going to the Light the Night. This year it wasn’t quite $1000.00 however the Club made up the difference.”
Colleen wanted to thank everybody who contributed to the event, with a special thank you to the local Lions Club. All of the proceeds go towards the Leukaemia Foundation in Sydney to help the Foundation enable more Australians to beat blood cancer. Families and friends all come together for a gentle walk carrying one of three coloured lanterns; gold to remember a loved one, white for their own blood cancer journey, or blue to show they care.
