With the cooler winter months coming on, our thoughts turn to the homeless doing it tough on the streets. Keep them warm by attending this fundraiser event, while having a good time yourself.

The Music for Blankets event will be held at the RMIT Kaleide Theatre, 360 Swanston St
Melbourne on Saturday 7 May 2016 from 6pm to 9pm.

Click here for tickets, which are $30 Adult; $15 Student/Concession; and 3 years and under go free. Each adult ticket sold will provide two blankets and each student ticket will provide one.

With some 23,000 people experiencing homelessness in Victoria an incredible line-up of musos and dancers have banded together to head this fundraiser.

Below are some of them participating in this worthy cause; so have a heart, bring family and friends and enjoy this feel-good family friendly event. Food by Aroma Lily and Cake Me will be available with all proceeds from catering and the event will go towards the 300 Blankets Outreach and Blankets programs.

A volunteer-run organisation, 300 Blankets was founded in 2012 and have since provided over 7000 blankets through donations and fundraising events. They're looking forward to reach their goal of distributing their 10,000th blanket this year.

The blankets are all brand new, thick, queen sized, polar fleeced and come in re-sealable waterproof bags; many with heart warming hand-written messages contained within them from caring people in the community. To ensure the effectiveness of distribution, they're handed out through various charities like the St Vincent de Paul Society Soup Vans, Launch Housing, Royal District Nursing Service and many others.
