Torquay raising funds for LMK and Premmie babies

Front Beach Torquay Beach Houses, were the major sponsor on Saturday night for the amazing group, Loddon Mallee Kids.  LMK “Shine the light on Premmies Ball” was an amazing night, and the major fundraiser for the year.  A great night was held by all with many sponsors on board donating items to be auctioned off to help raise vital funds to help keep the premmie baby support group going.

LMK, supports all parents and families who have had premature babies in the area.  They help raise funds for the 2 local hospitals and have premmie packs for all families who have a premmie baby in the area, as well as offer support and communication.

Front Beach Torquay Beach Houses, were proud to be the major sponsor this year, donating a weeks accommodation in one of their 3  2 bedroom beach houses valued at over $1700.  The lucky couple who won the major prize of 7 nights stay in our beach house accommodation in Torquay, opposite the Front Beach, will have a wow of a time. We look forward to them coming and exploring the Great Ocean Road, and surf coast.

Elizabeth Murphy, (Managing Director of Front Beach Torquay Beach Houses),  who has had 3 premmie babies knows how hard and isolating it can be bringing a premmie baby home for the first time.

” …groups such as LMK and National Premmie Foundation are vital resources in our community.  These groups were not about when I had my 3 premature babies, so I know how vital a resource it is for parents and family and friends to have.”

Elizabeth encourages other sponsors to get involved too

“if we as businesses can even donate a small prize to be auctioned off, this is BIG to the LMK local group who can continue to provide information, awareness and support to families in need.”

Great donations from other businesses included Bendigo Real Estate (who did an amazing job at the auction), La Toriana, Babies, kids and a whole lot more, Bendigo Bank, Elise Lidgett Photography, the Borough Club,  and so many more.  If you would like to donate, please contact…. they would love to have you on board!
