|29 April 2010 - "One Precious Moment": Our Two-Year Anniversary Event
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and supported Rainbows for Kate at our 2-Year Anniversary fundraiser. We are thrilled to announce that over 300 people came along to the event and together we raised almost $120,000! It is an incredible effort and we are so appreciative of the huge amount of support we received from all of our generous sponsors, and also individuals and companies who donated items for our Live and Silent Auctions on the night.
We would particularly like to thank the Manly Wharf Hotel for allowing us to use their magnificent waterfront room for the event; BUNDA who created the signature Auction piece of a one-off Rainbows for Kate bracelet; and our founding sponsor Sass & Bide for all their generous and loving support.
We were lucky to get the last of Sydney's balmy weather for the night, and most arrived by ferry to the watch the sun set from the room striped with rainbow-coloured lanterns. 70 Silent Auction items were on display around the room and our guest auctioneer rallied the crowd for our 5 Live Auction items. On the night we heard from our Chairman Marcus Boyson about the achievements of the Foundation over the last 2 years, along with Drs Martin Tattersal and David Thomas from the ASSG, and our beloved ambassador Heidi Middleton who gave an incredibly heart-felt speech.
