The Redlands Coast premier fundraising event Dîner en Rouge will go ahead this year as a new look, live stage show called Musique en Rouge, to be held on Saturday 7 November.
Tickets will go on sale from Tuesday 22 September.
Mayor Karen Williams said a sell-out crowd was expected, with internationally acclaimed soprano and Redlands Coast local Mirusia headlining a talented list of performers.
“This event is now in its sixth year and continues to raise much-needed funds to support Redlands Coast residents affected by domestic and family violence,” she said.
“This year has brought many challenges for our community, and the economic and social impacts associated with COVID-19 have magnified the tragedy of domestic abuse.
“Now more than ever, we need to work together to ensure a safer tomorrow for all Redlands Coast families.”
Cr Williams said Musique en Rouge would be held at the Redland Performing Arts Centre Concert Hall, with Redlands Coast’s own Mirusia to be joined by leading Australian cabaret and theatre performers Luke Kennedy and Naomi Price.
“The evening will also feature special guest speakers and a range of great raffle prizes,” Cr Williams said.
“Funds raised through sponsorship and ticket sales will help to ensure local community organisations can deliver assistance to families when and where it is most needed.
“We all deserve to feel safe and supported, and we can all do something to help.
“With community support, we can continue to build a strong and safe Redlands Coast community where domestic and family violence does not go unchallenged.”
Cr Williams urged the community to support the event and enjoy a night of exceptional entertainment while helping others in need.
