Murray to Moyne mystery movie night

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

A mystery movie night will be held this Friday to raise funds for Deniliquin Hospital.

It is part of the annual fundraiser ahead of the Murray to Moyne Cycle Relay, where participants will ride 537km from Echuca to Port Fairy on April 7 and 8.

Kicking off at 7pm, the movie night will also feature live music by local musicians as well as a silent charity auction where thousands of dollars in goods and services donated by local sponsors can be purchased.

True to its name, the movie being shown will remain a mystery until the screening begins.

Money raised by last year’s Murray to Moyne team has been used to purchase a defibrillator and crash cart for Deniliquin’s new renal dialysis unit.

Each year the nursing staff and doctors are consulted to determine equipment priorities and the funds raised go directly towards that item.

Tickets for the movie night are available for $20, which includes finger food, punch and entertainment.

The evening will be held at ‘Araluen’, 597 Harfleur St, Deniliquin, and those attending can bring their own drinks and a chair, and are welcome to invite friends.

Tickets are available at Kazmar Shoes or Deniliquin Hospital.

The riders in this year’s Murray to Moyne team are Graeme Butcher, Brian Crockart, Mark Jeffrey, Chelsea Jeffrey, Mathew Tubb, Don Bull, Dean Barnes, Karen Butcher, Martin Smith, Burt Banks, Grant McKern, Sue Pitts, Sue Laing, Deb Bowie and John Trist.
