DD Group International (DDGI) is excited to announce that after a number of successful events in Brisbane, the annual DD RizeUp Fundraiser is heading to Mount Isa to raise much-needed funds for domestic violence charity; RizeUp Australia (RizeUp).

With limited tickets available, event organisers are encouraging locals to secure their tickets to the fundraiser event on Saturday, 28th May at the Overlander Hotel, before they sell out, explains Shane Boyes, Chief Operating Officer of DD Group.

“DDGI have been long-time advocates and supporters of the work and services provided by RizeUp and in partnership, we’ve been hosting an annual fundraiser event since 2016, raising over $90,000 for the charity,” Shane explains.

“With our Director, CEO and Ambassador Scott Prince hailing from Mount Isa, and with our DDGI office in town, it was a natural step to bring the fundraiser event to our hometown,” Shane continued.

“For one night only, the Mount Isa community will get their chance to come together, support a great cause and have a whole heap of fun. Tickets are already selling fast, and I encourage everyone
to pull out their finger and jump online to secure theirs, because once they’re sold out, the event won’t be back until next year.”

Ticket holders will get the opportunity to hear firsthand the devastating impacts domestic violence can have on families, and the importance of supporting the work of organisations such as RizeUp, from special guest speaker Simone O’Brien, a domestic violence survive and advocate for domestic violence prevention.

The event will be hosted by Australian actor Andy Ryan and attended by DDGI Ambassador Scott Prince, along with RizeUp CEO and Founder Nicholle Edwards.

“Already, the Mount Isa business community has stepped up to the plate and generously supported the event through donation of terrific silent auction prizes including signed Cowboys jersey, round of golf with Scotty Prince and some incredible local art.

“We’ve also got a bunch of other prizes up for grabs through our raffles and games we play throughout the night.”

RizeUp Australia is a determined coalition guided by influential, innovative leadership with the objective to amplify the nations awareness of domestic and family violence through the provision of dynamic, community driven responses. A key outcome to their objective is for all Australians to feel safe in their own homes and for children to be able to grow and develop in a healthy, secure environment.
