The Rigters Group are pleased to donate to the Midwest Multicultural Association who recently held their 2023 Multicultural Dinner.
Midwest Multicultural Association Inc (MWMA) was incorporated in 2008 and is recognised by local government as the voice of the culturally and linguistically diverse community. Key annual community events facilitated by MWMA are the Harmony Festival in March, Festival of Lights and Multicultural Concert in November.
With the current festivals/concert at the beginning and the end of the year, the Multicultural Dinner was held on the 5 August as a way of keeping the link with the wider community.
The Multicultural Dinner was also an opportunity to introduce the new Engagement Officer, Rose Weber to the community. The MWMA was successful with a 3-year grant from the Office of Multicultural Interests to establish a visible presence in the community with an office open at least two days per week and employ an Engagement Officer to enhance the work of volunteers in providing assistance to the culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) community. The office is open Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 2.30pm within the Centacare Complex, 3 Maitland Street, Geraldton.
Tickets for the Multicultural Dinner were available for purchase via the Humanitix ticketing platform which donates all profits from booking fees to children’s charities in Australia and around the world. This is the first time MWMA has used this platform and found staff support and information provided to be very efficient.
The Multicultural Dinner was a success with the maximum 100 tickets being sold for the event at the Catholic Centre. Catering was provided by Back Alley Tucker, a newly formed catering company.
