Reaching 4 Korina's founders have decided to hold another monster trivia night to raise funds to help Korina from Yerrinbool in the Southern Highlands, live a normal as possible life with her husband Daniel and children Hayden 5 and Amelia 2.

One week before her 28th birthday in 2015 Korina suffered a sepsis attack know as Toxic Shock Syndrome with symptoms no more than that of a cold or flu virus. The end result saw Korina become a quad amputee and a battle for 10 months just to survive. Korina’s full story can be found on a web site -  www.reaching4korina.com.au.

So why not go along and get some friends together to celebrate a two course Christmas In Winter Dinner at the Mittagong RSL Club on Friday 16 June, 2017 , with doors opening at 6.30pm and dinner served at 7pm. There is a limit of 35 tables so be quick. The trivia will take place throughout the evening and there will also be a raffle which includes two night accommodation (plus flights, breakfast and cab charge) to the Ramada suites in Ballina!

There will be a Random Auction on the night providing everyone with the opportunity to bid on some really special items such as a surf board signed by the cast of Home and Away!

Tickets are $55 per person or $550 for a table of 10.  Everyone is invited to attend to support Korina and raise awareness of ‘’Toxic Shock Syndrome”.

All monies raised from the evening will contribute to the ongoing and tremendous local fundraising efforts for Korina, with proceeds from this evening going to the ‘’Reaching 4 Korina’’ charity to assist with the purchase of equipment and prosthetics .

Tickets available from the Mittagong RSL either by phoning 4872 6700 or online http://mittagongrsl.com.au/event/reaching-4-korina-trivia-night/
