October 2015 marked the first Respite Plus "Rettober" Awareness and Fundraising Month for the families involved with the initiative.
Respite Plus Rettober
The month was a tremendous success with a number of local Sunshine Coast Media Outlets showcasing the families and events. Morning tea events were held by a number of families, staff and businesses committed to the "Rettober" Campaign. The Funds raised just tipped the $15K mark due to the generosity of many donors and the Major Raffle - a week on Tangalooma, donated by Samantha Wheeler and Don MacDonald. We look forward to planning next year's campaign and have secured our next Light Up The Bridge booking, with dates to be confirmed in the new year.
