IN mid-2012, the Knott family experienced the loss of their daughter, sister and friend Samantha.
Samantha's family and friends have since joined together to organise Sam's Day, a day to celebrate the life of Samantha and raise awareness of youth suicide.
Barefoot bowls for adults, a clown and face-painting for children will help attendants live every day like it is their birthday - a favourite phrase of Samantha's.
The entry fee of $20 covers lunch, bowling and a donation to Time Out House, an organisation that provides accommodation to at-risk people aged between 12 and 25.
A raffle with prizes donated by businesses will also be held.
Organiser and close friend of Samantha's, Julia Mason, said the family-friendly event would be a way of commemorating Samantha's life.
``We want it to be a fun day, Sam was a fun person,'' Mrs Mason said.
Samantha's father Rob Knott acknowledged the effort that had gone into organising the event.
``It's been an overwhelming response from the girls that organised it and the local community,'' Mr Knott said.
