The Hunter Community Environment Centre is proud to be hosting a Gala Celebration for World Environment Day this year. This is our major fundraising event for the year, and your chance to support your local environment centre.
Our campaign work is funded through donations from people like you. Supporting your local environment centre is a satisfying way to see your money put to good use right in front of your eyes, in our town, the world's largest coal port and the Hunter Valley.
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community and are excited to be writing to tell you about the many wonderful items we have to auction this Friday night.
They're listed below. You can check some of them out now on our facebook page.
Doors open at 7.30, at the Great Northern Hotel on the corner of Watt and Scott Street in Newcastle. Tickets can be purchased on the night: $30 or $20 concession.
Your donation means that we can get the message out to more people about what the expansion of the coal industry is doing to our health and environment, and campaign for the changes we need to safeguard our communities.
Come along and have a dance, a celebratory drink and some wonderful conversations.
Here are our list of auction items to get you in the mood!
