Frock up with ’50s flair at annual movie night fundraiser

PUT on your '50s party dress and head to Reading Cinema to help raise money for the Royal Flying Doctors on October 29.

The Bundaberg auxiliary for the Royal Flying Doctors will hold its annual movie night fundraiser, showing The Dressmaker.

Auxiliary president Carolyn Saffron said she had been planning the evening since last year and was excited to share the experience with the community while raising money for a good cause.

"When I googled it last year they were just making it and I thought it would be great for our annual fundraiser," Ms Saffron said.

"We are hoping to raise $2000 on the night and all the money raised will go towards the Bundaberg Royal Flying Doctor Service base."

Ms Saffron said there would be an Australiana theme, which would include classics from the '50s, such as devilled eggs and finger sandwiches.

"The movie is set in the '50s and is about a girl who comes back to a country town in Australia," she said.

"I think it will appeal to a lot of people.

"And we are encouraging people to come dressed in their best '50s themed outfits."

Tickets for the movie, which include finger food on arrival and a light supper, are $25 each and there will be prizes for the best dressed.

Contact Joan on 4152 3124 or Carolyn on 0408 486 185 to book.

No tickets will be available at the door.

Along with this fundraising event, the auxiliary holds fortnightly sausage sizzles at Dan Murphy's to help raise money for the Bundaberg Royal Flying Doctor Service.
