Fundraiser is icing on cake
THE Federal community has raised the $220,000 needed to buy the former Anglican church in the village but still has a couple of dates left on the events schedule.
So, it will be a case of "Money for Jamm" at the Federal Hall tomorrow night.
Some of the region's top musicians have banded together for a magic night of music known as the "Federal Jamm".
For the past nine months the Federal community has been busily raising the $220,000 necessary to buy the former church in the village and return it to community hands.
There have been art auctions, garage sales, book fairs and cooking demonstrations.
As the deadline for fundraising efforts approached, Federal Jamm was planned.
The community has just reached the $220,000 mark, but this event will go on regardless as part of the celebrations for raising such a staggering figure.
Though the actual property sale will not be finalised until the end of September, Federal Jamm will be a musical celebration of the community's achievements.
The stellar line-up includes the Romaniacs, Rebecca Ireland, Bossy Big Heart and Kat Cooper.
It will also feature Ben Sullivan, who will put on a "jaw-dropping" laser lightshow display.
Along with the fine music, there will be a pasta meal available from 6.30pm. The event is BYO. Tickets are $20 at the door.
Official celebrations are planned for after September 30 once the community takes possession of the property.
