Amaranth Foundation was founded in 2009 and is based in Corowa, NSW – a small rural community on the border of NSW and Victoria.
The purpose of the Foundation is to provide support and assistance to people living in rural communities, who are living with serious and advanced life limiting diseases.
The Amaranth Foundation will be holding its annual Scarlet Black Tie Ball, A Night to Remember, on Saturday 7th September in the Federation Room, RSL Club, Corowa.
The Amaranth team is very excited about this event. This year we have booked a five piece band from Melbourne to provide the music for dancing and dining; and we have also planned a couple of very special entertainment segments. The RSL Club Executive Chef, Liam Whyte, is already planning the delicious menu for our dinner.
At our ball last year the Silent Auction provided much discussion and amusement among our guests. An extensive range of donated goods meant that everyone was tempted by at least one item and the bidding was competitive. We appreciated very much the support of both the bidders and the people and businesses who donated the goods. I am sure the same support will be given for our auction this year.
As a not for profit organisation we rely on public donations, bequests and other funding streams to continue our work. Throughout the year we run minor activities such as monthly BBQs at Safeway and raffles to help supplement our funding. The ball is our major fundraiser. Without the support of people who know and understand the needs of people in rural communities, we could not continue to provide the valuable services we offer to hundreds of individuals, couples, and families struggling to live with the effects of grief, loss or a terminal or life limiting illness.
Bookings are available individually or as “tables of 8”. Numbers will be limited, so an early booking is suggested.
Tickets are $65 each and further information can be obtained by contacting the Amaranth Foundation at:
