‘Save the Date’ Wedding Expo

Pictured here is an example of the photographic curtains that will be installed in Cancer Care Centre at Cairns Base Hospital using fundsraised at ‘Save the Date’ Wedding Expo in January 2012. Event Organiser,  Joanne Male is now also seeking photographic submissions from the community.  The photograph featured is by Colyn Huber, Lovegreen Photography.


Members of Cairns wedding industry have joined forces to fundraise for innovative photographic curtains that will add a ray of sunshine to  Cairns Cancer Centre.  On Sunday 15 January they will join forces to host the inaugural ‘Save the Date’ wedding expo at Brothers Leagues Club between 10am and 3.00pm.


Organised by marriage celebrant, Joanne Male, the committee of six wedding industry suppliers are now seeking support from the community to make this event a fundraising success.


“Our aim is to raise $10,000 through admission fees and a host of prizes and raffles,” said Joanne.


According to Ms Male, fundraising on the day will contribute towards 20, digitally printed photographic curtains for Cairns Oncology Unit.  Each curtain will feature a series of wonderful images by local people.  The images will be on display at the expo and attendees will pick their favourites.


“These curtains are destined to add happiness and a big dose of sunshine to those receiving lifesaving treatment.  I am sure both the patients, staff, family and friends will benefit greatly from viewing the wonderful pictures and landscapes of our region taken by everyday people who have a passion for photography.”


The Save the Date committee is now looking for the following support:


-          Submission of photographs for the digitally produced curtains

-          Donation of major prizes for raffles – be they short breaks, day tours, restaurant or shopping vouchers

-          Attendance at the Save the Date event on 15 January 2012.
