West Side Story

August 28, 2021

What an amazing night to remember! A big thank you to the 50 people who joined us at QPAC on August 13 to see West Side Story.

We’ve heard rave reviews from the families,  team members and Board members who attended and enjoyed this iconic show. We were able to witness some wonderful memories and new friendships forming on the night. Because it was such a success, we’re planning more events and fundraisers like West Side Story in the future. Do you have an event idea? Feel free to email our team.

Not only was it a fun night but thanks to the generosity of the people who attended, we were able to raise over $2,900. These funds will be going right back into supporting the Mamre community through initiatives like Acts of Kindness (AOK). AOK is funded entirely by donations and carried out by volunteers. From sharing a cuppa together and supplying essential items to coordinating handyman projects, AOK provides practical support and social connectedness to people in the community.

We of course must also say a big thank you to the four wonderful local businesses that donated the raffle prizes on the night. Thank you to Gold By The Gram, GoBoat Brisbane, Naudic, and Casa Di Louie Restaurant. We could not have raised so much money for our community without your assistance. And congratulations to our raffle winners. If you’re willing to share, we’d love to see how you use your prizes! Please feel free to email us.

Were you unable to come but still want to help support the Mamre community? Why not donate here or grab a Play for Purpose raffle ticket for only $10. For every ticket sold $5 goes straight towards helping families and individuals in the Mamre community. Plus, you get the chance to win some amazing prizes! Grab your ticket today.

Thank you again to everyone who supported us at West Side Story. We hope those who came had a wonderful night. Stay tuned for more Mamre events coming soon.
