Our Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship is a group which creates Social Events for fans of J.R.R.Tolkien/The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings, here in Brisbane. Our non-profit registered company name is The Fortinbras Proudfoot Esq. Foundation.

 

I met with Bronwyn Sheehan (Founder & Executive Director, The Pyjama Foundation), a little while back and offered the proceeds of our organisation to the Pyjama Foundation to help them purchase books for their Library.

 

We have a number of events coming up in the near future at which we will be able to raise funds for the Pyjama Foundation. Our main aim is to find outlets to publicise these events.

 

  1. 1.       Christmas in July, “A Hobbit’s Second Christmas”, July 27. This is a private event for our members and friends, but we always have a raffle and raise a small amount of money.

 

  1. 2.       Book Store and Raffle at Logan Central Library,  August 3, (9:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.). There are  no outlays for this event, so all money raised is profit.

 

  1. 3.       An Evening with Martin Pearson, 20th September, SCA Hall, Wesley Street, Lutwyche, 6:30 p.m. Martin is a folk singer from Melbourne, who is a regular visitor to Brisbane and performs annually at the Woodford Folk Festival. We are aiming for an audience of 60 people for this event. Cost $25…

 

  1. 4.       “An Evening in Middle-earth” Dinner Dance. Our major event for the year will be at the Morningside RSL on October 12th, 6:30 p.m. The night will include a Buffet Meal, music, entertainment, special guests, raffles and prizes. The venue holds 300 people and we are aiming to fill the room for a great lively night.  Admission by ticket. Cost $55. Purchase tickets here….(more information below)

  1. 5.       We also have Display Booths at Mythacon (October) and Supanova (November) planned, where we will sell items and raffle tickets to raise money for our charity.

 

I hope you and your organisation can help promote our events for this worthy cause.

 

Events 1,3,4 would be nice opportunities for you, and your friends to join us and meet our members… for more details, contact Peter Kenny.
