Ballarat Trotting Club – Girls Night Out
In 2018 the BDTC raised $20,000 for “Love Your Sister” in 2019 they raised $12,500 for The Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) and finally the 2020 iteration which had been postponed in 2020 and then again in 2021 due to COVID 19 restrictions and closures. On March the 17th this year the “Girl Night Out” resurfaced supporting “Dolly’s Dream.” https://dollysdream.org.au/
The night would normally expect an audience of 350 enthusiastic people but with date changes and isolation rules, and last minute “close contact” withdrawals, the BDTC went ahead with 220 attendees.
Given Dolly’s Dream was formed to create awareness around the repercussions of bullying and the signs to look out for within a school environment, the BDTC thought it fitting to make a special presentation of $500 to the Ballarat and District Suicide Awareness Network on the night.
