Fundraising Dinner

The 2019 CRI Network Ltd Annual Giving Dinner was a huge success.

Our guest speakers were Julia Anderson, CRI champion, Mum and farmer,

accompanied by her husband John Anderson,
former Deputy Prime Minister.

After enjoying sunset hors d’oeuvres on the deck to
accomplished guitarist Mick Danby,

130 guests were treated to a scrumptious
two course dinner provided by Fig Jam.

We wish to thank all our sponsors, table hosts, guests, supporters and volunteers
who contributed generously towards the event.

Due to this generosity, we have been able to employ a
part time Coordinator in the Greater Springfield Area
to support and grow CRI in this growing area.

Photos from the event can be seen here:

Please save the 7th June 2020 for our next years celebration.
We have invited Dr John Dickson – Australian writer, academic and speaker to be our guest speaker, so I’m sure it will be another interesting and entertaining evening.

CRI Network Annual Fundraising Dinner 2019

Our 2019 CRI Network annual fundraising dinner was held on Friday 7th June 2019 in the beautiful
Phoenix room at the Ipswich Girls Grammar School.

It is evident today that schools are at the forefront of a secular ideology which seeks to either minimise or
eradicate faith based influence over the lives of children.

In recent years the CRI Network has proven that with funding and vision, hundreds of CRI Instructors can be trained and supported allowing thousands of young people to be instructed in Christian values. Over 2300 additional students are now receiving Christian religious instruction in schools bringing the total to well over 5000 in the Ipswich region.

The CRI Network is a well organised and highly effective organisation. Funding is desperately needed to see this Network continue and young students enabled to receive quality Christian instruction by trained Instructors on a regular basis.

We are grateful to our many sponsors, donors and volunteers who together made this event our best yet.

Here is a selection of photographs from our highly successful and extremely enjoyable Fundraising dinner held on the 2nd June 2017. Many came dressed in the 1920’s theme and with the addition of our fabulous jazz band, Karina ( the grand piano and our wonderful Charleston dancer Ruth the night really lived up to expectations. The childrens choir from Raceview state school reminded us all what CRI is all about, the children. Thanks are richly deserved to so many people for their efforts to make this night so successful, and for fear of missing someone out, I would like just to say THANK YOU to all. Suzie Overell.
