The Roaring 20's Gala Ball 2016

The Big Bounce is Back in 2016!

In September 2016, you will have the oppurtunity to Bounce for a cause and help raise much needed funds for Cystic Fibrosis Tas.  Grab a tramp, a pogo stick, or just jump on the spot!  It doesn't matter what you choose to do.  All that matters is that you take part.

Registrations will be open closer to September, so watch this space!

Melbourne Cup Charity Lunch 2015

CFT’s first Melbourne Cup event, held in conjunction with new Salamanca restaurant and bar, the Brick Factory, was a sell out. With 134 enthusiastic and well dressed guests the room was abuzz with the anticipation of a great lunch, along with the race that stops the nation. 

After a glass of sparkling wine on arrival guests settled in to find their tables decorated with their Melbourne Cup themed centerpieces of synthetic grass, miniature horses, gold chocolate coins and mason jars of white snapdragons.

With CFT’s Executive Officer, Paula Wriedt, stepping in as MC the day’s entertainment got underway with guests surprising organisers with their knowledge of Melbourne Cup history in answering quiz questions to win some great treats. Thanks to the sponsorship of one of our corporate partners, lawyers Simmons Wolfhagen, guests enjoyed the photo booth. It’s fair to say that the hilarity of the photos increased with the amount of drinks consumed as the afternoon continued. 

Banjo’s Bakery, another one of our valued corporate partners, sponsored the lolly banquet, and such was the quality of the lollies that many guests were seen making several visits! Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania would like to sincerely thank the Brick Factory for inviting us to be the charity partner for this event, along with Angela Wilson of Awake Consulting who was the event organiser. We would like to acknowledge the ongoing support of our corporate partners who were involved, Banjo’s and Simmons Wolfhagen, and thanks once again to CFT member Di Bryant, along with Friends of CFT Mandy Lewis and Kylie Bester, who all helped us out in preparing for the event. 

As the charity partner for the event CFT received a percentage of the ticket sales and all the raffle proceeds and we raised around $2,700. Thank you to all our members who supported our first Melbourne Cup lunch.

65 Roses Gala Dinner and Charity Auction 2015

As members would be aware, the Cystic Fibrosis 65 Roses Gala Dinner was to be held at the Tram Shed Function Centre, Launceston on Saturday November 7th of this year.

Even though there was a great deal of advertising for this event in the form of Radio Community Connect, TV Community Connect, CFT and Sponsors Social Media and posters, unfortunately due to poor ticket sales we needed to cancel the event.

Obviously, this was not a decision that was taken lightly and it caused great disappointment to the volunteer committee who had been working extremely hard for 6 months in the lead up to the event to make it a great success. 

We would like to acknowledge the generosity of some of our ticket purchasers who donated the ticket cost to CFT in place of accepting a refund. I would like to particularly thank Christine Timms from Prospect Vale Chemmart who generously donated the cost entire cost of her staff table - $1200. 

I would also like to extend a huge thank you to some of our major sponsors; Fine Drop Wines, Tamar Ridge Vineyard, Tasmanian Independent Retailers (I.G.A.), Peter and Amanda Gutwein, Braaap Motor Cycles, The Red Feather Inn and Phillip Kuruvita Photograph.

Events such as these rely heavily on the support of CFT members to help in spreading the word about them with family, work colleges and friends, plus also where possible to attend themselves. Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania does not receive any government funding and fundraising is a crucial component in enabling us to continue all the services we offer. 

We are hoping to offer another special fundraising event here in Launceston early in 2016 and we ask that everyone get behind it to promote and support it. 


65 Roses Logo

65 Roses Day is the National day for raising awareness of Cystic Fibrosis, and is always held on the last Friday in the month of May. You can help us out on 65 Roses Day by selling merchandise, holding a community fundraiser to collect money and raise awareness, setting up an Everyday Hero page to raise funds, donating to CF, buying merchandise from Big W, and spreading the word on CF through your social media pages.

In 2016, 65 Roses Day was held on Friday 27th May, 2016.  We had so many willing volunteers staffing stalls and tin rattling on the streets. Thank you to all of those who helped to make this a successful 65 Roses day!
