Monday, 23 October, 2017

Rockhampton Leagues Club,

Cambridge Street, Rockhampton.

For over 26 years, our children and young people have been supported by a team of passionate, dedicated, hope filled people. Our chaplains have served faithfully and we celebrate their achievements and look to continue supporting them as they work with Queensland’s young people in the years ahead.

The Frontline Appeal Dinner will be an evening of spectacular entertainment, wonderful company and delicious food. Most importantly, you’ll hear inspirational stories from students and chaplains on the ‘frontline’ of our schools. You will also have the opportunity to invest in this vital initiative to support the social, emotional and spiritual needs of our children.

You can impact young lives for many more generations to come.

Keynote Speaker

Geoff Wilson

Veterinary surgeon, corporate speaker, motivator, extreme endurance athlete, one of the world’s most accomplished adventurers and expedition leaders – that’s Geoff in a nutshell. His passion for life, adventure and desire to do business with purpose is infectious. With notable world records ranging from the longest land journey by kite of the Sahara to kite-boarding from Australia to Papua New Guinea to the fastest solo unsupported crossing of Antarctica in history – he draws on incredible experiences to create insights for us in our business and personal lives that can once again create clarity and purposes where previously we felt stuck. His personal motto ‘all in or not at all’ is sure to challenge us as he shares his passion for life.


Hosting a table at the Frontline Chaplaincy Appeal Dinner, Rockhampton

Guests generally are invited by a Table Host, who has generously committed to inviting a table of 10 to attend the dinner and are people who are passionate about the work chaplains do in schools and want to see children supported and nurtured as the grow.

There is no up front ticket fee for attending the Frontline Appeal Dinner. Generally guests are invited to make a donation at the end of the evening that would not only cover the cost of their meal but also generously support the work of chaplaincy across the State.  Guests can specifically direct their gift to support their local chaplain and school.


5 simple steps to hosting a table:

  1. Confirm you can host a table with Sue Hanlon (0408120654)) 
  2. Make a list of colleagues who you would like to invite to the Dinner.
    A table is made up of 10 people. Make it clear to your colleagues that while the dinner is provided free of charge compliments of SU QLD, this is a fundraising dinner to improve the lives of Queensland youth. So please invite those with a capacity to give generously on the night.
  3. Invite these people to the Dinner by 15 September using the Frontline brochure.
  4. As each of your guests confirm their attendance, email their contact details to Sue Hanlon (0408120654) –
    They will be sent the relevant event information. We will need their names and email addresses, and, if possible their postal addresses and phone numbers. Again, please pass on each individual’s details as they confirm with you—don’t wait until you have a full table.
  5. All guests will receive a confirmation reminder before the event.
