THE Clarence Plains Child and Family Centre is launching its latest family event with the aim of raising funds to purchase and construct a new liberty swing.
Organiser Jennifer Dare said the event – “Total Eclipse for a Park – was inspired by a challenge featured on Channel 10’s reality television program, “The Bachelor”.
“The idea of running an event in total darkness was something that sparked our imagination and our volunteers believed it was a great way to end a busy year of fundraising with something totally out of the box,” she said.
“So far, we have raised close to $14,000 and we aim to have the swing completed by April 2016.”
The event will challenge participants to fold clothes, draw pictures, build Lego towers and fold paper aeroplanes – completely blindfolded.
Ms Dare said there were plenty of other surprises in store for participants.
“Participants stand to win great prizes and will be treated to a catered lunch in Rokeby High School’s ROK Café, all for the cost of their entry ticket,” she said.
The Total Eclipse for a Park event will be held on Wednesday 9 December from 10.30am until 2pm in the ROK Café (Mockridge Road, Clarendon Vale).
Cost is $10 per person. People may enter individually or as a team.
