Mary's House movie event

Movie night

A movie night was run on Friday 21st October at Roseville Theatre to help Mary’s House. The movie was awesome! - “The Girl on the Train”, an adaptation of the best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins.
There was an opportunity to socialise from 7.15pm. The Candy Bar and bar were also open.

We had a full house and raised about $4,000. A big thank you to all those who helped us in our efforts!

Thank you for your support
