RUOK? Fundraiser Event

UPDATE! We have raised over $5000!!

SHAVE-A-RAMA! Shave for Charity – Sunday 4th August 3pm

The RUOK? National Suicide Prevention Charity is close to our hearts here at Hotel Illawong, with recent stats showing that 80% of hospitality workers agreed that mental health issues, such as feeling depressed, anxious or manic, are an everyday challenge they face in the industry.

It can be a hard slog – so we want to raise awareness and ‘start the conversation’ R U OK?

Part 1 of our Fundraiser Events was held on July 16th in collaboration with Evans Head Fishing Classic – we ran a Musical Bingo event & raffles thanks to our amazing sponsors – this event raised a total of $411 for the ROUK? Charity. You can track our efforts & donate directly online here.

Part 2 is coming up as our SHAVE-A-RAMA Event on Sunday 4th August, when Pepper (our Bar Manager with a very well established beard) and our Super Chef Scott will be taking it all off on Sunday 4th August during our ‘RUOK?’ Shave for Charity Fundraiser Day!

The Evans River Killer Whales are on board to join us with a crew ready to shave & colour their hair all in the name of charity PLUS we have meat raffles thanks to Metcalf Meats, a Bundaberg Bar Fridge to give away & a Wild Turkey goodie bag, live music thanks to Georgia Roberts + lots more!

It should be a fun afternoon in the beer garden for a great cause!

If you want to see what Pepper is hiding under all that facial hair, show your support & please donate at the bar, bottleshop, restaurant, online here or JOIN US on Sunday 4th August.

All money raised will be heading straight to RUOK? Charity – track it online here
