Let’s get red-faced and help Ellie's Smile brighter

A RED Faces night based on the popular Hey Hey It's Saturday segment is being held as a fundraiser for 18- month-old Ellie Topliff who has been diagnosed with Tay-Sachs Disease.

Red Faces is a talent quest style night, with performers or groups presenting their routine (singing, dancing, comedy or something utterly bizarre) for judging.

Tewantin Noosa RSL is holding the night on August 23 and are calling on individuals and teams to perform at this fun-filled and hilarious event.

Acts need to register by June 30 at reception, and there will be a great prize up for grabs for the winners.

Entry is $25 per act and all funds go to the family for Ellie's ongoing care.

Diagnosed with Tay-Sachs disease just after her first birthday, Ellie's gorgeous smile touches all who meet her. Tay-Sachs disease is a very rare, untreatable disease caused by an abnormal gene.

The life expectancy of a child with Tay-Sachs Disease is anywhere between two to five years of age. There is no cure nor is there any treatment available.

The main focus for Ellie's parents, Catherine and Joel, is to keep Ellie as comfortable and happy as possible and to make the most of every moment they have with Ellie, to create everlasting memories and to enjoy her infectious smile.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards Ellie's ongoing care.

Donations can also be made at www.gofundme .com/Elliessmile.
