RFBI Cessnock Masonic Village pulled out all the stops for our recent fundraising event, and the community response was nothing short of heartwarming. The event was held to support the RFBI Benevolence Program and Annuity Scheme, an initiative that has been instrumental in providing essential support services to the local community.

The atmosphere was buzzing with excitement as residents and their families gathered for an afternoon tea filled with camaraderie and community spirit. The highlight of the event was the special art auction, featuring creations crafted by the talented residents themselves. Each piece captured the essence of their unique perspectives.

The art show proved to be a monumental success, with attendees thoroughly immersing themselves in the vibrant world of resident’s creativity. The engagement between the residents, their families, and the broader community was truly heartening, creating an environment of shared joy and celebration.

Ray, one of the attendees, remarked that it was a standout event among the fundraisers he’s had the pleasure of attending. The art auction added an extra layer of excitement, with eager bidders vying for the chance to take home these cherished works of art.

In the end, the community came together and raised an impressive $915.00, a testament to the power of collective action and compassion.

Thank you goes to the wonderful businesses who supported the event, including Cessnock Plaza Pharmacy, Pokolbin Village Pharmacy, and Pokolbin Animal Farm, and to our staff for running such an effective event.
