This is an invitation to be part of a movement of Sunshine Coast residents that say NO MORE TO VIOLENCE. This is an invitation to be part of the solution that will provide happy, healthy and SAFE homes for families.
Under the Purple Sky is an event that will show people who are disadvantaged that there is a community that truly cares about them. That there is a community that regardless of background … doctors, builders, lawyers, plumbers, teachers, accountants, retired, just to name a few … will come together to say enough is enough!
Held on the last Saturday in Domestic and Family Violence Awareness month, this event will put a spotlight on the real heroes in our community that form part of the solution to this ever increasing social issue. The outcome will be the implementation of a PREVENTATIVE service that funds the in-depth, in-home, case management of those people who are at risk of further disadvantage.
At 6.00pm on Saturday 27th May 2017, 300 guests will transcend onto the iconic Aussie World Promenade which will be flooded purple in recognition and celebration of the people that have said NO TO VIOLENCE. Guests will be engulfed by the soft tunes and melodies vibrating through the starlit night sky while they enjoy the romance of the Carousel and Ferris Wheel.
Ticket price includes; an exquisite three course menu and flowing beverages, as our entertainment unfolds throughout the evening.
Table of Eight $1,280
Individual Tickets $170
Who is Lions inPlace Inc.
Lions inPlace Inc (formerly Lions Emergency Accommodation Centre Inc), has been operating on the Sunshine Coast since 1979 and is a project of Lions Clubs from Districts 201Q3 and 201Q4. We support individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, or escaping domestic and family violence.
Every day, the service has to turn people away due to lack of vacancies in our emergency accommodation. It is simply unacceptable that the people who contact us are often sleeping with children in highly unsuitable conditions - in tents, cars, toilet blocks, on beaches and couch surfing.
In 2017 we are pleased to announce that we are also launching a new Domestic and Family Violence Mobile Support Service. This service ensures that women and children receive timely holistic trauma informed and practical supports whilst they are in transition to safe refuge. This will allow us to reach more women and children and assist them to live safely, and to understand the impacts of domestic and family violence in their lives.
Lions inPlace Inc relies on the generous financial support of the community to assist us with the cost of providing supports to clients that are not covered by government grants. This support is pivotal to the success of Lions inPlace Inc, so that we can continue to deliver vital services to vulnerable people, and so that they can achieve social inclusion and justice in their communities.
