Late last month The Ellington Jazz Club was filled with cool tunes, famous musicians and jazz fans all committed to helping prevent youth suicide. “A Concert to Save Lives’, in its second year, was started by rider and jazz musician Ric Eastman who wanted to combine both of his passions.
On Friday November 12th at the stunning Observation Deck of Fraser’s Restaurant in Kings Park $95,000 was raised for the prevention of youth suicide, with all funds raised going to the 2011 Hawaiian Ride for Youth supporting Youth Focus.
On Saturday 30th October 2010, John Busby of Budget Truck and Car Rental together with ‘Team Budget’ hosted 120 guests to a day at the races in the committee room at Ascot Racecourse. The aim of the day was to raise money for Team Budget’s fundraising efforts for the Hawaiian Ride for Youth and Youth Focus.
