High profile Brisbane CEO Elena Gosse of Australian Innovative Systems has more than 17,000 reasons to help stop domestic violence. That is the total value of the prizes on offer as part of her fundraising activities in the lead up to Dancing CEOs on 17 May 2019.
Dancing CEOs is an annual event which sees leading Brisbane CEOs dance and compete while raising funds for Women’s Legal Service Queensland (WLSQ). WLSQ provides free legal and social work assistance to women experiencing domestic violence, complex family law and sexual assault matters in Queensland.
Anyone can purchase a ticket in one, or all, of the raffles to share in more than $17,000 worth of prizes, including stunning diamond jewellery, business coaching sessions, lunch at Parliament House with the Minister for Employment and Small Business, cosmetic tattooing, automotive care and more. Tickets start at $10 each. Each prize has a separate raffle so participants can enter to win only the prizes they have their eye on. Plus, holders of the winning tickets do not need to be present at Dancing CEOs.
All prizes have been generously donated by some of Brisbane’s leading successful businesses including a stunning pair of diamond stud earrings from Xennox Diamonds valued at $5000, one month’s worth of free business coaching sessions from Beinc valued at $3500 and a Pagoni ‘Chloe’ choker handcrafted by Pagoni designer Kassandra Behrendt, valued at $639. There is also a divine Starfire Diamonds ‘Enchantment’ diamond ring valued at $5800 up for raffle, lunch at Parliament House with Shannon Fentiman MP, Member for Waterford, Minister for Employment and Small Business, Minister for Training and Skills Development (a prize money cannot buy) and a cosmetic tattoo voucher with specialist Kelli Thiesz valued at $1200. Additional raffle prizes include a Love Lockets jewellery voucher valued at $500 and a Motor Hospital automotive voucher value at $500.
The community can also make a tax-deductible donation online. Elena hopes that the high-quality raffle prizes will provide an extra incentive for people to donate. “This is an opportunity for both men and women to win some extraordinary prizes while helping women and children escape domestic and family violence,” she said. “The generosity of our incredible sponsors has taken my breath away. The best way for me to thank them is to ensure that lots of tickets are sold, which will mean lots of funds for Women’s Legal Service Queensland.”
