Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor
Please help us raise urgently needed funds for Mental Health and the Prevention of Youth Suicide.
We would like to invite you to join us and help us raise urgently needed funds for Mental Health and the Prevention of Youth Suicide.
Our Target: $50,000 Already raised $10,000
Mental Health and Youth Suicide is a difficult subject confronting all communities and it is time we took action and did something about it.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among Victorians between 15 and 24 years of age. The social disruption and trauma to family, friends and the community is of increasing concern for us all. The loss of people to the scourge of suicide is an existential trauma wound for the entire community.
Mental Health and suicide is a complex problem, and rates of suicide are affected by many social, cultural, as well as individual factors, in the face of which young people feel quite helpless. Responsibility for preventing suicide cannot rest on individuals, families and friends alone. It will require a combined and intense community effort to address its terrible toll and the damage it causes within our community.
We are happy to advise that our Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor committee and the Mental Health Foundation Australia have joined together to organise this wonderful Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor.

Four judges will be in attendance and will judge the best Dance Star on the night Dance Stars have been asked to raise money for the fundraising.
On the gala night only one couple will dance at a time on the stage. Each couple will be introduced by our comperes. After each dance the judges will advise the audience what they thought of the performance and the judges will then show the score awarded to each couple.
There will be a short break after each couple have danced their first dance. Each couple will dance two dances on the night. After the second dance there will be an auction of three items.
Finally, the announcements will be made of the winner who raised the most money and the winner of the best dancer. Beautiful trophies will be awarded to both winners.
Please join us on the night and celebrate the talents of our Avalon Dance Stars on the Floor.
Please buy your tickets as soon as possible and we will be extremely grateful for all donations to our fundraising target.
