Masquerade madness enables another 65 girls to be enrolled!
Written by Lauren Alnutt & Chloe Tuppen
The masquerade mischief returned for a second year this October, continuing stories of community contentedness and compassion.Bonded by a shared compassion for girls’ empowerment; one particular young couple’s relationship began at last years’ Mornington Masquerade when Caity asked Chris out, finally. A year on, behind the cover of masks Chris and Caity enjoyed another fun night. Caity says, “It was another lovely event, we had a blast.”
The masquerade also brought Shan’s family together. Shan was concerned when she temporarily thought the ball was sold out – the only event she could manage to get all 3 of her adult children to commit to attending. Luckily some tickets could be found and Shan’s family were united for a night that raised $8,100, empowering 27 girls with an education.The love was spread interstate, with Masquerade’s also held on the Sunshine coast and Sydney. A total of $19,523 was raised across the events. We hope to see you next year to help reach our goal of enrolling 1000 girls.
