On Friday 28 August the annual Kookaburra Kids Corporate Charity Lunch took place – and what a day it was!

This year’s lunch was the most successful so far and has set the benchmark for next year! A total of $78,000 was raised!

Over 300 guests attended, all coming together to help raise funds for children living in families affected by mental illness.

We would like to thank all the amazing friends old and new that came out to support Kookaburra Kids including lunch sponsors Suez environnement, St George Foundation, PAYCE and Big Sister Foundation, as well as all those who donated fabulous prizes for our Live and Silent Auctions and Suez Lucky Key promotion.

Special thanks must go to our remarkable MCs and Kookaburra Kids ambassadors Jim Wilson and Peter Overton, plus our special guest panel: Hon. Scott Morrison, Lisa Alexander, Amanda Mostyn and David Gallop.

Thank you also to Lucy Brogden for speaking on behalf of Kookaburra Kids patron John Brogden and for sharing such an inspirational story.

The true celebrities of the day were our Kookaburra Kids: Alyssa, Jayden and our young ambassador Rose. They inspired us all by sharing their own personal stories and shining like the stars they are.

We would also like to congratulate our two live auction winners, all the silent auction winners and the winner of the Seuz Lucky Key promotion!
