Zonta Club of Melbourne’s East holds events and fundraisers to support
our Service and Advocacy Projects

Events

Theatre Night – Thursday 18th November

The Flick – by Annie Baker, is a drama set in a run-down movie theatre in Worcester, Massachusetts. The play follows three underpaid employees, Avery, Sam and Rose.

Avery has an encyclopaedic obsession with film and Sam has an unrequited obsession with Rose.

As one late night blurs into another, and this trio of painfully ordinary people bond over movie trivia, low-level embezzling and shared ennui, the play evolves into a deeply moving, sometimes funny and delicate examination of the millions of tiny dramas that make up everyday life. Together they do the humdrum and tedious labour necessary to keep one of the last remaining film projector cinemas running. They bicker, laugh, dream and clean their way through shifts in the empty aisles, banter about their favourite films, astrology, the splitting of ‘dinner money’ and ultimately share a history, but will they have a future?

The Flick, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama was the talk of New York and London.

This tender drama, both funny and heartbreaking, will awaken you to another Melbourne Spring!

$25 per person.
Tickets are limited!  For more information please email info@zontamelbourneseast.org.au

Fundraising

Buy great wine varieties and support Zonta Club of Melbourne’s East

At this difficult time, we have been unable to hold fundraisers through our usual avenues and feel this is an excellent option which is Covid-safe through contactless online ordering and delivery.

A choice of six (8) wines from Personalise Your Wine are available now.

Wine can make an excellent gift for birthdays and other special occasions such as Christmas, as well as BYO when dining out. This year you can select if you would like your label to include a Christmas motif.

The minimum order is six (6) bottles and if you are Melbourne Metro, delivery is FREE.

If you are outside Melbourne Metro or interstate, phone Darren O’Hara from Personalise Your Wine on 0408 517 790 to order over the phone and he will advise the delivery fee.

Please Click Here to view the selection and place your order.
This fundraising activity will make a vital contribution towards our projects.
It will help us greatly if you could please pass these details on to your family, friends and professional associates, offering them the opportunity to purchase some quality wine while at the same time supporting Zonta Club of Melbourne’s East.
