Grafton Relay For Life launch event

The 2016 Grafton Relay For Life committee invite the community to the official Relay launch night on Wednesday 16 September, 6pm at the Saraton Theatre in Grafton. The night will combine the chance to register for the Relay, an opportunity to meet the committee members and other Relayers and a great night out with an exclusive preview screening of the epic tale of survival, “Everest” at the Saraton Theatre starting at 6pm for a 7pm screening. The cinema management will donate proceeds from the $16 tickets towards the Grafton Relay For Life, and attendees can make an additional gold coin donation towards light refreshments in the foyer. Pre-purchase of tickets is strongly recommended. Registration tables and information about the 2016 Grafton Relay For Life and the new venue will also be available, as well as a nifty range of Relay merchandise to purchase. We invite everyone in the community to join us to celebrate the launch of the 2016 Grafton Relay For Life. Tickets for the advanced screening of Everest can be purchased from the Saraton Theatre.
