Your “˜vote’ for Jackie will help Mamre project!

Mamre, a community project of the Parramatta Mercy Sisters will benefit financially if Jackie Kelly, Federal Member for Lindsay, is a successful contestant on Channel Nine’s new program “Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice” (Tuesday, July 11 at 7:30 pm).

Jackie has nominated Mamre’s Sudanese Refugee Resettlement Program as her charity. For every episode she appears, sponsors will donate up to $8,000 towards the establishment of new facilities for this program. But Jackie needs your support!

Mamre CEO, Sister Mary-Louise Petro RSM is urging Sisters of Mercy and the broader community to get behind Jackie. “Please support Mamre and our new program that assists southern Sudanese refugees by voting for Jackie each week,” she said.

“Torvill and Dean’s Dancing on Ice” premieres next Tuesday, July 11 at 7:30 pm.
