Founded by Mariska and Martin Ascher who tirelessly spent most of their time Capturing Beautiful
images of Mallacoota and surrounds and producing a Calendar (With those Images) each year which were offered for sale for less than $20.00
All profits from the sale of those Calendars went to the Mallacoota Emergency Services
& Wildlife Welfare.
The Mallacoota Fundraising Group are no longer producing Calendars or Operating as a Charitable Organisation.
This website will continue to be presented indefinitely for all to view those beautiful images
and as a legacy to Mariska and Martin for their wonderful and tireless work over the past 9 years.
Also to provide you an oppotunity to read the book "The Day Mallacoota Turned Red"
which is on-line and FREE to read - The Link is at bottom of this page
The Production, Cordination, Sale and Distribution of this book
was organised by Mariska & Martin.
The book was arranged by local Medical Practitioner
"Dr Mubashar H Sherazi"

The Printing of the Calendars and the Hard Copy of the Book was produced by

Your Contributions Mariska's Thank You words>
Over the last 9 years of sales from our Mallacoota Fundraising Group calendars, Dr Mubashar Sherazi’s book
“The day Mallacoota turned red” and the amazing generosity of people locally,
throughout Australia and worldwide a total of over ……..
$1/2 Million Dollars
was raised which has now been donated to the Mallacoota - Ambulance, Fire Brigade,
SES, Medical Clinic & Wildlife Welfare.
This money has enabled us, on your behalf, to purchase a new 4WD vehicle for our Fire Brigade,
another 4WD for the SES, 10 x defibrillator's, automatic CPR machine,
resuscitation mannequins, sleep study machine & complete state of the art communications system
just to name a few.
Because of your generosity, Mallacoota is now a much safer place for locals & tourists alike……Thank you!
Unfortunately with age and ailing health both Martin and I are leaving Mallacoota for a
short period and taking a long holiday something we never had since we started the Calendars 9 years ago.
The work for the Calendars is far too time consuming and takes a toll on our health. Particularly standing up
all day at the Markets.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words & encouragement together with your support
in purchasing the Calendars
& the money that you have donated to this worthy cause over the last 9 years.
) Best Wishes to all our Customers and Supporters, Mariska & Martin
