Milton Theatre presents a Holly Burns Foundation fundraising event:
The Wildlife Man Show, with David Ireland.
To raise much needed funds for the Holly Burns Foundation, David Ireland, ‘The Wildlife Man’ will be presenting his special Wildlife Man Show at the Milton Theatre.
Think of a cross between David Attenborough and Steve Irwin, and you’ll have an idea of the enthusiasm and passion that David Ireland possesses for all creatures great and small, as well as our natural environment. You might have seen his documentaries on Discovery Channel, Channel Nine and Win TV.
An experienced film-maker and naturalist, he brings it all together for an afternoon jam packed with wildlife encounter stories all backed up with amazing action wildlife films shown on the theatre’s big screen. Featuring lions, crocodiles, sharks, deadly snakes, wild boars and Great Barrier Reef marine animals, the show will be an up close and personal journey alongside David as he shares his adventures with his audience. The show is aimed at all ages, the young and the young at heart! Tickets are cheap and it will be a fun filled afternoon for all in aid of an important cause.
This special event is all to benefit the Holly Burns Foundation…on a mission to raise $10,000 to go towards research into Vanishing White Matter Leukodystrophy (VWM). Holly, a 6-year-old little girl, lives locally, but unfortunately at 19 months of age was diagnosed with a rare, genetic and terminal condition. With only a 5-10 year life expectancy time is ticking fast and we are in a race against time. There is hope; VWM research is now being conducted at Illawarra Health Medical Research Institute. However, research costs money. Due to their being no government funding, because this condition is so rare (Holly is 1:44,000,000) all proceeds from the event will go towards this research.
Other ways you can help is through donations ( www.hollyburnsfoundation.webs.com ) or by sponsoring Holly’s mum, Amanda, for doing the ‘Shave’ on May 5th at the Mollymook Golf Club at 1pm. All welcome to go along, watch and take part in the raffle with great prizes on the day of the shave.
