FREMANTLE FOUNDATION CEO LEAVES

Posted in charity, city of fremantle, fremantle foundation, Uncategorized by freoview on April 20, 2020

 

I am sad to hear that Dylan Smith has left his job as CEO of the Fremantle Foundation, which he held for ten years, from the start of the great organisation.

Dylan, a former Fremantle Dockers player, is such a great guy and was such a good leader of the Fremantle Foundation that he will be missed.

I don’t know what Dylan’s plans for the future are, but I hope they will be in Freo, because he is a great asset to our city.

Thanks for all your work at the Foundation, Dylan! I still remember the day when I photographed the first board members at the Scoop building in Norfolk Street ten years ago.

DRINK AT BENNY’S TO HELP BUSH FIRE VICTIMS

Posted in bar, bushfires, charity, city of fremantle, donations, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on January 3, 2020

 

Benny's

 

Benny’s on the Fremantle Cappucino Strip is having a bush fire appeal this weekend, so go and support the good cause!

From every pint of Gage Roads Alby draught $ 2 will be donated to the NSW bush fire appeal, so this is one great excuse to have a few too many.

Robby Lang from the Fibonacci centre also wants to do a bush fire fundraising concert and they will be brainstorming at the Fremantle Townhall this Sunday the 5th at 2pm to see if they can get the support from enough bands to make it work.

What is happening over east is absolutely devastating and it affects so many families, businesses and communities, so let us all show the leadership that is lacking in Canberra and raise millions to help out!

DELIGHTFUL FREO LONG TABLE

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The FREO LONG TABLE is my favourite event in Fremantle because it is everything Fremantle is. It is fun, food, wine, entertainment and charity. It is an evening where the Fremantle community comes together to have fun to support those who need a helping hand.

Proceeds for the heart-warming event go to St Patrick’s, so thank you so much to all the volunteers, businesses, sponsors, chefs and cooks and volunteers, and performers, and, and, and. You all make Freo the very special caring place it is!

Surprisingly there are still a few tickets left for this Thursday’s FREO LONG TABLE, so make sure to snap them up by midnight tonight!

The Freo Long Table is one of the best events in town with a long table stretching from Market Street all the way to Mouat Street in beautiful High Street of our heritage West End.

There will be roaming entertainment, John Butler and Mama Kin will be performing, and it is always a really fun evening

Proceeds go to St Patrick’s so it is a very worthwhile fundraiser. Don’t let Freo down. I needs to be a sell out!

Visitors will love the visually spectacular roaming performances from Circus WA and WASAMBA – and Freo favourites the Witchy Djypsies will deliver another fantastic set of their signature gypsy jazz tunes.

Any profits made on the night will go directly to St Pat’s, to ensure they can continue to provide services for people who are homeless and disadvantaged in Fremantle and across south-west metro.

Stallholders include Paperbird; Dingo Sauce; Inkling Art Space; Little Seed Handmade Jewellery; Kath Wrote a Picture; High Spirits Distillery; Luke’s Pure Raw Honey; The Natural Food Emporium; Simply Sustainable Market Co; Excuse my French; Pearls and Diamonds by Dana; Pure Relaxation; Mamatree and many, many more.

It is close to Silent Night… and one should never be silent about the plight of our homeless and disadvantaged people, but a SILENT AUCTION is all together a different form of silence where one can make a difference and support charity while bidding on something special.

All proceeds go directly to St Pat’s to help us in our mission to end homelessness in Fremantle and surrounds. Check it out: www.myminiauction.com/stpats

We all know that Freo people are very special, even our maligned politicians, and the WA state member for Fremantle Simone McGurk proved that by abseiling the huge Central Park building in Perth to raise money for CAHOOTS.

CAHOOTS runs programs for children and youth with a disability and our Minister for Child Protection went above-well above!- and beyond to support them.

Well done Simone!
