Daryl Floyd and the Let’s Bring Terry Home — the Avoca Mine Search team have joined together for a special fundraiser to help local charities and kids in need this weekend.
The fundraiser, An Insight into Crime, is set to provide a compelling and fascinating look into crime stories that have rocked Australia, including details of the search for Terry Floyd. The event will be hosted by his brother Daryl, who has spent countless hours and thousands of dollars searching for Terry and said the fundraiser is a chance to give back to the community that has supported him.
Twelve-year-old Terry was last seen on the Pyrenees Highway between Avoca and Maryborough on June 28, 1975 and is believed to have been abducted and murdered.
“Given the fact that we are looking for my 12-year-old brother, I just wanted to give a bit back to children that are in need, especially in the lead up to Christmas,” Daryl said.
“We wanted to do a fundraiser for the local charities that help out children in need, children are so important.
“The community spirit around this event has been amazing, everyone has been really keen to give back.”
The event is taking place this Saturday, December 1 at the Carisbrook Harness Racing Complex from 7 pm. Tickets are $20, with all funds raised going to local charities in Maryborough and Avoca.
