help raise money for Bloomhill’s Target 300 campaign on Wednesday 1 June.

The three Public Relations students, Liberty Moore, Elodie Obkircher-Vela, and Johanna Staffas, who are mentored by Michelle Smytheman from Reflected Image Productions, are all eager to start putting their studies and enthusiasm into action for a good cause.

The students are organising an exciting evening in Mooloolaba where guests will eat at three of Mooloolaba’s finest restaurants, 4th Floor, Via Italia and Soave in progressive dinner style made famous in the 1950’s.

The event will raise money for Bloomhill’s Target 300 campaign, which is aimed at funding a desperately needed extension to the Bloomhill Cancer Help Centre in Buderim, to accommodate the increased number of clientele it is servicing.

Elodie Obkircher-Vela said the event was a great opportunity to give back to the community whilst getting the chance to put her studies into action.

Johanna Staffas, originally from Sweden moved to Australian in 2009 to complete her Public Relations degree at USC and to experience the coast lifestyle.

“It has been an incredible experience to complete my degree here, the people are wonderful and I’m excited to start using my studies to plan such a fun event,” Johanna said.

Bloomhill Cancer Centre is run by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who rely on contributions from the community to provide services to people with cancer and their families throughout the Sunshine Coast.

Liberty Moore said she hopes the event will draw in people of all ages who are guaranteed an exciting night out and a unique dining experience.

Tickets for the progressive dinner will cost $75 per person and include a welcome drink, entree, main meal and dessert and the chance to win some exciting prizes.  As part of their fundraising efforts the students are also selling tickets in a monster raffle in the lead up to and at the event.

The tickets for this special event are available for purchase from Reflected Image PRoductions.  You can pay by credit card, or cheque or money order made out to “Bloomhill Cancer Help”.  To reserve your place today, phone 07 5450 2691.
