Fun family event making dreams come true

START December in the spirit of Christmas by attending an exclusive viewing of an animated movie to support Make-A-Wish Australia.

Make-A-Wish Australia grants wishes to seriously ill children across the country.

Also up for grabs is a plethora of prizes, including vouchers for a two-hour horse ride, a $200 gift hamper, tenpin bowling vouchers and more.

RE/MAX Partners Hervey Bay sales associate Raelene Box said RE/MAX Partners Australia was a major sponsor of the charity.

"RE/MAX have been supporting Make-A-Wish for about eight years, but this is our first," she said.

"We're hoping to raise maybe $500-plus.

"If we sell the 50 (tickets) which we're very close to already, that's $250 profit."

Mrs Box said she and administrative assistant Margie Bergman would dress up for the event and encouraged children attending to dress up for a chance to win a prize.

"We're having a fancy dress for the children and we'll have a boy prize and a girl prize," she said.

Ms Bergman said Big Screen Hervey Bay will play The Star, exclusively for the event.

"It's a story about the first Christmas and a little donkey called Bo," she said.

"It's a fun family event, it's an animated kids movie and it's all about Make-A-Wish and making dreams come true."
