Ladies, you are invited to join us at 5pm on Friday the 17th of November for a fun workout suited to all levels, followed by a few wine’s in our Restoration Zone, with entertainment by the incredible Laura Jensen.
Tickets include a workout, drinks, nibbles and entertainment and $10 of each ticket will go to supporting little Amber who is in need of a Smart Pup to assist her through life. There will be a lucky door prize and if you entered our Facebook competition, you will be in the draw to win a Mercedes for a weekend thanks to our friends at Mercedes-Benz Brisbane and a night at Sage Hotel James Street!
Amber was diagnosed with severe intellectual disabilities at the age of 3 and has recently been accepted into the ‘Smartpup’ service dog program. However, families are asked to fund raise $20,000 towards their dog before the matching and training process begins. Darren’s step mum has taken the initiative to start raising money to help and we were 100% on board.
So come along, meet some new friends, get in a fun workout, and drink some wine… While helping to change someones life.
Spaces are limited, so be sure to reserve yours today and let us know you are attending through the Facebook Event Page
More about Amber
Amber was diagnosed with severe intellectual disabilities at the age of three and has been in early intervention therapy ever since such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, pyschology and hydro/swimming therapy. She attends a mainstream kindy with support and at home her parents, Alaister and Alison spend time helping Amber by using visual aids and charts for routines, feelings, emotions and behaviours.
After researching the use of service dogs, Amber’s parents decided to apply for one, and she was accepted; however the cost to breed and train one ‘smart-pup’ is around $35,000. Families are asked to fund raise $20,000 towards their dog and they do not start the process of matching and individually training until the money is in place; so the longer they take to fund raise the longer it takes to get Amber her dog.
This Smart Pup will change Amber’s future and allow her to live a better life. $10 of each ticket to the Workout & Wine Down will help raise funds to make this a reality for her.
