The annual fundraising event Movie Under The Stars for the BDCU Goulburn Hospital Fundraising Inc was a huge success.
Publicity Officer Karon Jones said that despite the drizzly weather at the start of the screening, around 200 people attended the event.
"Despite the wet weather, we received a positive feedback from many people who told us that it was a wonderful evening and they enjoyed themselves. We raised nearly $5000 from the event," she said.
All funds raised from the evening will go toward the purchase of an upgraded entertainment system for the new Goulburn hospital.
This year, Movie Under the Stars featured 2020 Australian comedy-drama film RAMS that has been directed by Jeremy Sims, written by Jules Duncan, and starring Sam Neill and Michael Caton.
The movie is about brothers Colin and Les who have been fighting for decades. Both are award-winning sheep farmers but when disaster strikes and disease threatens their flocks, will they be able to work together to save their sheep, their legacy, and their community?
The event was held February 13 at Kingsdale Winery on Crookwell Road and Covid-19 Safety Plan was put in place with all required safety measures applicable.
The event was being held after the cancellation of two of the major fundraising events - 'Mile of Pennies' and fun run 'Run Goulburn Run' - due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Since it's inception 11 years ago, the BDCU Goulburn Hospital Fundraising Committee Inc has nearly raised a total of $400,000 for items for patient care and comfort.
