Venue: NEW Location – Fairfield Showground (443 Smithfield Rd, Prairiewood NSW 2176).

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone has announced that this year’s ‘Illuminate‘ community New Year’s Eve celebration will be a fundraiser event for the families of the two Rural Fire Services volunteers from Horsley Park Brigade who tragically lost their lives last week.

The event will also raise funds towards the Salvation Army’s Disaster Appeal which is providing food, shelter and essentials to evacuees and first responders in fire-affected areas, and the RSPCA Bushfire Appeal which is assisting affected wildlife, pets and livestock.

While the Illuminate event is free, Fairfield City Council will donate the $3 booking fee from each ticket, to the RFS donations fund for Mr Keaton and Mr O’Dwyer’s families. With more than 5000 residents expected to attend, donation tins will also be provided at the event to allow the local community to also contribute directly to the families.
