A reminder that there are fundraising events this week to support areas and wildlife destroyed by the recent bush fires in Australia. Thursday 23 January there is a fundraising night for this cause at Dipso the Wine Republic, 4 rue de la Loge, Luxembourg, from 6 pm.
More information can be found in the previous post by clicking here: Australian bushfire catastrophe: fund-raising events
Australia has so far lost approximately 186,000 sg.km to bushfires. It has claimed almost 30 lives, over 1 billion animals, and destroyed thousands of houses, businesses, farms and forests. Australians are normally a resilient people, but they need our help in the face of such extreme devastation.
Please join us for a special fundraising night hosted by the amazing team at Dipso the wine Republic.
ENTER our tombolas (raffles) to win fabulous prizes like luxury accommodation, art, fine wines and tastings, cooking classes, tickets to the Philharmonie, dance-class, dinners at leading restaurants, a balloon flight, shopping vouchers, and lots more! Tombola tickets will be available from 23d January until 25th January.
If you can’t make it for to Dipso, there will be at another fundraiser — a sausage sizzle at Home from Home in Strassen on the 25h January from 11:00 until 15:00. Tickets will be available for sale at Home from Home from Thursday 23d and throughout the event on the 25th January.
