Over the past few weeks the Dine for Life team was faced with the extremely difficult decision of choosing a charity that the upcoming Summer Dinner would donate its proceeds to. Since each dinner raises money for just one charity, the decision required serious deliberation. And the choice was made all the more difficult by the fact that all ten of the charities we were considering presented worthy causes.
James Young, Dine for Life’s Charity Manager and Event Ambassador, acted as the liaison between Dine for Life and the charity organisations. He asked all interested charities to draw up an application which explained how they would use the money raised by the Summer Dinner, were they to be this dinner’s featured charity.
Marking the start of Perth’s party season with our Summer Dinner on December 1, we are supporting the Samaritans Crisis Line in fostering positive change in the lives of those affected by loneliness, depression and suicide.
All funds raised will contribute to marketing and promoting the Samaritans Crisis Line – recruiting volunteers and raising public awareness of the vital support that is available to anyone in their time of crisis.
