On Friday 20 May 2022 we held our annual flagship fundraising event at Doltone House, Hyde Park Sydney. Our annual Corporate Lunch brings together our corporate partners, supporters, and stakeholders to raise funds to support our programs and help us to expand our reach to more Australian young people living in families impacted by mental illness.
This year’s guestlist included our generous corporate partners, local supporters, representatives from Defence Families of Australia and other defence-based organisations, as well as a large contingency of emergency services personnel which meant we had a great cross section of the various communities we service across Australia. The engagement of these organisations gives us opportunity to reach more young people in these communities and support them through our programs.
With a fund-raising target of $100,000, the odds were against us to reach this due to cancellations as a result COVID as well as the federal election the following day. However, thanks to our team of volunteers, staff, board, and inspiring speakers including Lucy Brogden AM, Mike Goldman and a Kookaburra Kids family, we had an outstanding result, and we are well on our way to reaching our target. We would like to thank the following organisations for their large donations to the event and auction prizes; Deicorp, Thales, Southside Staffing, Mon Purse, Winmark Wines, Taronga Zoo, and Helping Hand Group.
