rise bushfire benefit & thanks mate in yarra glen

Today I went to RISE, a bushfire relief benefit concert, held at the Healesville Racecourse. A plethora of artists were on the bill and the weather turned on a treat for the event.

I went along in the earlier part of the day and enjoyed the music, the food (I can recommend the Healesville Scout’s bacon roll and Healesville High School’s burger) and the hot rod display had some magnificent machines on show.
The locals, near and far, came out to support this event, their ongoing generosity is overwhelming and a testament to their goodwill and community spirit.

Next Sunday “Thanks Mate” will be held at the Yarra Glen Racecourse. Thanks Mate is a thank you event for all emergency services workers & volunteers that assisted during the bushfires in the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

It will include a tribute to all emergency service organisations with a parade down the straight, The Police Show band, Children's rides and amusements, a free sausage sizzle, show bags, roving clowns plus Yarra Valley food and wine. It is also a regular race day so you can enjoy all there is to enjoy about country racing.

Thanks Mate
