The 300 x tickets allocated for the Launceston Gala Fundraiser – Launceston Responds - being organised to aid those affected by bushfires across the state have all been sold.
The response from Northern Tasmanians has been phenomenal, with the event selling out in just two days.
This means $15,000 has already been raised for the Tasmanian Rotary Bushfire Appeal.
Due to the demand and the support of local businesses, a further (and final) allocation of 100 x tickets have been released for sale at the Princess Theatre at the original price of $50.
The Gala Fundraiser will be held at the Tailrace Centre on Thursday, 24 January from 6.00pm
