The Broken Hill Country Women’s Association is hosting two movie fundraisers of “Little Women” for the CWA Disaster Relief Fund. 

The Fund is dedicated to those across NSW affected by any kind of disaster such as drought and bushfires. It provides household monetary needs such as electricity bills or car insurance, but it does not include businesses. 

The CWA Disaster Relief Fund has handed out more than $16.1 million in recent years. It also does not charge administration fees - all of the money raised goes straight to the community. 

This is the Broken Hill CWA’s first fundraiser of the year.

Once they knew “Little Women” was coming out they contacted the cinema to ensure they could have it as a fundraiser. 

The CWA women believe it is a perfectly suitable film as it is about strong women - which is what they’re all about. 

The CWA’s motto is ‘Honour to God. Loyalty to the throne. Service to the country. Through country women, for country women, by country women.’ 

They believe the movie ties in well with and promotes what the organisation stands for. 

The fundraiser is on Saturday night at 8.10 and is the premiere screening. Another screening will take place on Sunday at 1.15pm. 

Tickets cost $15 and there will be nibbles and refreshments, as well as raffles to be drawn before both movies. 

The CWA invites everyone to come along to the cinema and have a good night, and enjoy what is said to be a great film, for a great cause. 

The group will hold their first meeting for 2020 at the Musicians Club on Monday, February 24, with a fellowship dinner at 6pm before the meeting begins at 7pm. All women, young and old, are invited to attend. 

WHAT: CWA “Little Women” fundraiser

WHEN: Saturday, 8.10pm and Sunday 1.15pm. 

WHERE: Silver City Cinema
