Scotsburn Cinema Fundraiser

On the 19th of December 2015 a dreadful Bushfire irrevocably changed the lives of the Scotsburn Community decimating family homes, stock, and 4600 hectares rural countryside.

As part of the communities efforts to assist the bushfire victims, Buninyong & District Services board of directors took immediate steps to provide both financial support and facilities for those in need. An account was immediately set up for the benefit of the victims at the Buninyong Community Bank® Branch with a donation of $10,000 to kick it off. The Community House was also utilized to distribute food and clothing as well as to provide support services to those in need.

A cinema fundraiser was also organized at the Regent Multiplex Cinemas. Marketing for the night was arranged by local advertising agency The Ad Group. We are so grateful to The Ad Group and their suppliers for donating their time to market the night so professionally. The night was a great success with the cinema being at capacity with over 550 patrons enjoying the special screening of family movie Zootopia.

Director of Buninyong and District Financial Services Michael Scanlon commented how pleasing it was for our Community Bank® Branch to be such a support to the Scotsburn Community in their time of need. The cinema night raised in excess of $10,000 which went directly to allow the victims to start rebuilding their lives.”
