FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR THE WILDLIFE
A very special event in the Santosha garden to raise our energy and funding for the wildlife injured in the bushfires, and all those caring for them.
We're super excited to welcome greatly-loved Brisbane bands, and our dear friends, Desmond Cheese & Hailey Calvert, to fill the garden air with aural deliciousness!
We have an amazing fine art and natural therapies auction, full of contributions from the Santosha teachers & Australian artist community, that begins on the Facebook event page on Sunday 12th January, and ends on the night - details of what's being auctioned are below.
We're putting on a vegetarian BBQ, Ally's homemade kombucha and other drinks care of the local independent bottle Spiros, and a raffle chock-full of delight - so please come cashed up and in the mooooood to spend it, to get these beautiful beings healed, and on the road back to somewhere to live.
