Message from Adalita:
Hi everyone, it's a crazy time to say the least and I hope everyone is going ok out there. Sadly, due to the public health concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, I will need to cancel my upcoming March 29th Bushfire Benefit for Wildlife show at the Northcote Social Club.
A big thank you to all of you who have bought tickets for this benefit, it really warms my heart. A further big thank you to those who are thinking of donating their ticket to the cause, that is a lovely gesture. You are welcome to follow the links below if you would like to donate your ticket price. One thing to bear in mind is that the aim of the show was to distribute the profits equally between Animals Australia and Wildlife Victoria. To be faithful to the cause, if you would like to donate your ticket price, please consider sharing the amount equally between Animals Australia and Wildlife Victoria. All donations will be going directly towards the bushfire appeal. Thank you so much again everyone for your kindness and generosity.

THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Adalita, together with very special guests, Tex Perkins with Matt Walker, is getting together with some of her favourite local musicians for a special night of songs to help wildlife affected by the devastating bushfires. Supporting will be up and coming local folk duo, Charm Of Finches.
All profits from the show will be distributed between Wildlife Victoria, the states leading animal rescue organisation, where donations, "...will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months..." (Wildlife Victoria - www.wildlifevictoria.org.au/) and Animals Australia, one of Australia's most highly regarded animal protection organisations, who have been working hard to provide support to expert wildlife vets to travel to fire-devastated areas where they are helping any surviving animals, ensuring local wildlife carers have the support and resources they need, channelling much-needed funds directly to groups and individuals helping animals in the hardest hit regions, helping with medical supplies, food drops and "...also planning how best to assist with the longer-term needs of affected animals, who have lost their habitats and food sources. Urgent work will be needed to restore these bushfire-stricken areas, to regrow native vegetation and rehabilitate these areas so they may once again provide safe habitat for the animals." (Animals Australia - www.animalsaustralia.org/features/help-animals-wildlife-carers-vets-australia-bushfires.php).
So be quick and grab your tickets and get there early for a great night out helping our precious Australian wildlife on the road to recovery.
