Moranbah, Queensland, Australia
Our Quota Cares Month project
Quota Moranbah has done it again for the second year running. Our fantastic team successfully hosted a High Tea for 180 guests. We have a unique demographic of ladies in our community that are thirsty for social events and even more so for events that fundraise for local programs that directly impact our residents. This year due to an overwhelming response with ticket sales and corporate sponsorship we were able to assist two fantastic organisations; CQ Rescue and Life Education. All proceeds were split 50/50 from our High Tea Event. CQ Rescue are in desperate need of funding to continue to put rescue helicopters in the air due to declined support from both State and Federal Government. The local residents can feel peace of mind knowing their well spent donations may one day make the difference between survival or death. (We hope not). Life Education is a primary school based interactive program to showcase the effects of alcohol and drug use on the human body. Unfortunately this program does not come free to schools with each student paying $13 per visit. The funds raised from our event will reduce the costs for families by 50%.
How did our QCM project benefit our community?
Quota Moranbah is a small club and until recently have only participated in programs and events that are privy to our clubs small member numbers. These events went under the radar but internally our club knew the difference we were making which is satisfying and pressing our members hot buttons. With an event such as the High Tea we needed to get our name out there to reach our nominated ticket numbers and sponsorship amount. The community at large were eagerly curious about who and what is Quota? The club used various media mediums to advertise the event, eg. radio, local newspaper, social networks and market stalls. We created a sense of friendship and fun within our club when marketing our high tea which spiked many peoples interests on the day. We have a list of names and numbers who expressed interest in joining our club.
How did our QCM project benefit our club / members?
Over the past 12 months we have successfully recruited 4 new enthusiastic members. The new members have injected so much energy and different perspectives into our club which has definitely revived our little club. The High Tea event takes alot of planning over approximately 7 months which during this time requires continual communication and lots of practise High Tea afternoon and nights! Hosting this event is a win-win for our club as we quickly were acquainted with our new members and have established a great friendship between meetings and running errands closer to the date of the event. Lots of fun. X
