LOL 4 Ben - Celebrating Ben Shaw
In September 2018, marking the one year anniversary of Ben's passing, a comedy fundraiser was held. The event was appropriately named LOL 4 Ben.
The aim of the evening was to create an uplifting environment filled with love and positive energy, where we could celebrate Ben. We created a space that allowed friends, family and all those who wanted to make a difference, the opportunity to remember Ben with a smile and a laugh.... oh, and an excuse to eat plenty of sweet treats on his behalf! The chocolate fountain was a huge hit!
In addition to the hilarious comedy line up, a live raffle was held. A huge variety of awesome prizes were up for grabs and a lot of money was raised.
All funds were split evenly between two organisations - Beyond Blue https://www.beyondblue.org.au/ and Ben's own football club, PCHS Junior Rugby League Club https://www.pinecentralhs.com.au/
