In memory of Dainere Anthoney. To raise vital awareness and funds for Paediatric Brain Tumours which are the number one disease killer of children.
There will be prizes for the best dressed Table and best dressed person. Perhaps you will choose to dress as your favourite 'spooky' movie or television show or book character, it may be something you find 'spooky, kooky or creepy' or you may just like to wear a tie or hat to suit the theme.
On the evening you will be experience the most marvellous entertainment from the fabulous Dramatic Productions, the awesome H-Cee Family and the stupendous Amber Nichols and some very special surprises.
There will be a Raffle, Silent Auction, Live Auction, Lucky Door Prizes, Wine Bags and a Guessing Competition.
We are so honoured, blessed and grateful to have our most extraordinary, enthusiastic, selfless and passionate Dainere's Rainbow Committee - John, Bernadette, Mark, Dianne, Bron, Monique and Mark, Anne and David, Sam, Elizabeth and Stuart and Meryl who have worked alongside us to organise this most special evening.
Because Dainere's Rainbow is run entirely by volunteers this means that 100% of the funds raised at Spooktacular and any other events we hold goes directly in to the research team led by the phenomenal Dr David Ziegler at Sydney Children's Hospital Kids Cancer Centre.
This year Associate Professor Ziegler is planning to open a new study of a drug called ACT001. This is a compound that is one of the top 5 most active molecules that has been found to work against brain cancer cells in the Ziegler lab. The trial will be the first in time in the world it has been used to treat children with brain tumours and is extensively funded through donations from the public, people like yourselves who are attending Spooktacular.
