Fundraising

“Blast From Your Past” … a unique MSM fundraiser event

Greetings,

 
Your Invitation + friends, family & neighbours – 6 October 2018
A fun night of music and variety entertainment called “Blast From Your Past” (www.blastfromyourpast.com.au) is planned for Saturday 6th October, as a fundraiser for the work of MSM in Vanuatu.  
 
The format for the evening will be similar to the successful 60s and 70s nights held over the past three years, with good ol’ fashioned “Nostalgia“, plus an ensemble of amazingly talented musicians, fueling the fun and frivolity.
 
There’s also the chance to come dressed in your favorite decade, the Rock’n 50sRebel 60sRelaxed 70s, or the Recent 80s … (…as you’d be aware, nothing of note has happened in the past 30 years, so the evening is featuring solely pre-1990 music, comedy, TV and news)   
 
Event Promos
A flyer is attached, but I’ve also included two recent fun video promos for the event below…

 
 
And here’s the website … http://www.blastfromyourpast.com.au/
 
Feel free to pass it onto friends and family !  Why not come along as a group?!
 
It’s not essential to RSVP, but if you can it’ll help tremendously with planning.  
 
If you think you can come just flick an email to msmvanuatu@gmail.com, with names and numbers.
 
Look forward to catching up on the night!
 
All the best

70s music, nostagia & variety night

Greetings from Medical Sailing Ministries (MSM)

As planning begins in earnest on “MSM Vanuatu Mission 2017”, we are delighted to share information with you about the first fund-raising event in support of this remote-access medical transport & development group.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s two incredibly successful 60s Music Radio Variety Nights, we now present the …

“70s music, nostagia & variety night”

Saturday 8th October, 7:00pm,
North Ringwood Uniting Church,
Dickson Cres North Ringwood.

Here’s the first promotional video for your enjoyment …

The importance of private, direct fund-raising is more urgent now than ever before, particularly in  light of recent Federal Government cut-backs to foreign aid – including assistance to Vanuatu and other South Pacific nations.So we present this event as a fun way to both re-live the music and nostalgia of the 70s (or in the case of those under age 40, discover for the first time what made the 70s so … so, “Cool” and “Right On Man”) and at the same time support this much needed outreach to some of the most remote islands and village communities.

If you can get along on Saturday 8th October, we can guarantee a great, fun night !!

As many described last years 60s nights … it will be “Truly Unique” !!

Again, thanks so much for your interest, support and encouragement .

Blessings and cheers

November 2015 Vanuatu MSM Member Update

Greetings from MSM

We hope you enjoy the latest Medical Sailing Ministries Update newsletter, featuring the start of the actual building of the freshwater and toilet project in the village of Paunangisu. These are exciting times in what is otherwise a rather quiet part of rural Vanuatu.

Also attached, again primarily for those in Melbourne, is an invitation to a re-run of the widely successful 60s Music Night, that was held back at the start of October.

The first event raise around $2,200, for solar power on the toilet, with over 120 people in attendance.

Given the enthusiastic response to the night and the fact that so many people either wanted to come (but couldn’t) or would like to have brought friends (but didn’t) it was decided to run the night again.

If you can get along on Friday 13th November, we can guarantee a good, fun night !!  For those who sent donations but couldn’t make it last time, the $15 entry-donation is waived if you can get along this time.

Again, thanks so much for your interest, support and encouragement .
Blessings and cheers
