DO Details

In September 2012 the Butterfly Ball& Charity Auction was born in memory of two local mothers, Noelene Beutel(mother of two & aunt of the organiser) and Delarece McKellar (mother ofnine), who lost their lives to domestic violence in June 2011.

Seeing the loss of the McKellar familyand then experiencing a loss in my own has driven me to try to make adifference. If we, as a community and as individuals, can promote positiverelationships the effect will snowball and we can create positive communitiesfree from first domestic violence and eventually violence as a whole.

 In the last two years, the ButterflyBall & Charity Auction has raised over $20,000 for the prevention andelimination of domestic violence, and that was just the beginning! TheButterfly Ball is an amazing, family friendly, community event that we intendto continue build on in the future.

 With the continued support ofAustralia’s CEO Challenge, the 2014 Butterfly Ball & Charity Auction willbe held at Oakey Cultural Centre on Saturday October 4th 2014, and fundsraised are going to sponsor the NAPCAN “Love Bites” education program at OakeyState High School in 2015, assist the Toowoomba DFVPS (Domestic and FamilyViolence Prevention Service).

This year we are also going to promotethe work of the White Ribbon Foundation and the QLD Homicide Victims of CrimeSupport Group (who have been a constant support to my family since the death ofNoelene).

 NAPCAN “Love Bites” 

NAPCAN advocates for awhole-of-school approach to the prevention of relationship violence and hasincluded in the LOVE BiTES package lesson plans on gender deconstruction,sexual harassment and bystander strategies that can complement the PersonalDevelopment, Health and Physical Education curriculum.

 Toowoomba DFVPS (Domestic andFamily Violence Prevention Service)
