The Albany Surf Life Saving Club will be transformed into all things Persia on June 19 for a special dinner where all proceeds go to Albany Community Hospice.

Starting at 6.30pm, guests will treated with Persian-inspired food, entertainment and decorations, as well as the witty humour of local comedian Jon Doust. 

Albany Community Hospice Fundraising Committee Chair Jeanann Barbour said they expect around 100 attendees and tickets are selling fast.

“We’re quite pleased with the progress so far,” she said.

“The money raised goes towards the gap; Medicare pays so much, HBF pays so much and nobody pays to go to Hospice.”

Ms Barbour said she’s constantly “gobsmacked” by how generous the Albany community is.

“It is the most incredible job,” she said.

“I’ve never had anybody say no and I’ve done it for a while now.

“They don’t always give me $300,000 but they dig in their pockets and they find something.

“Hospice is a caring and beautiful place… and most people in Albany have had something or somebody experience that.”

Albany Community Hospice has been providing the Albany community with palliative care for over thirty years.

As a community-owned organisation, donations are raised so residents can receive the care they need for free.

Tickets are $80 and are available from Paperbark Merchants on York Street or online via https://paperbark.sales.ticketsearch.com/sales/salesevent/11766
