Diamonds In The Sky
The Diamonds In The Sky Suicide Intervention Basketball & Touch Football Carnival is a community event which we aim to provide education, Awareness and intervention strategies to address suicide in the local and surrounding regions. We aim to reach out to all ages through participation in sport, music and dance; to encourage, support and promote LIFE.
This will be an annual event for the region to continue to support and raise awareness to reduce and eliminate suicide in our community. in future years we hope this will grow into a large regional and/or state-wide carnival.

How The Funds Will Be Used
Funds raised will be used to buy equipment we need so we dont have to keep hiring every year or event we hold. With Diamonds In The Sky 2016 recently finished. The growth over the first 5 years have increased every year.
Funds raised will purchase:
– A new P.A system
– Mic stands
Funds will also be used for entertainment for the fun day, guest speakers, promotional cost.
The only challenge we face is constant funding. With a major sponsor we would set to improve more every year. With great support within the region we see this Intervention and Awareness event continuingly growing in numbers in the future.
