Bushfire Gala Fundraiser 2020

Gala Fundraiser Tailrace Centre

Earlier this year we had the privilege of hosting the Bushfire Gala Fundraiser organised by the amazing Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise. They did a phenomenal job of running the event and getting the community involved.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community. 400 tickets to the event were sold in under 3 days! Furthermore, additional donations poured in from people who missed out on tickets or couldn’t attend.

A total of $82,184.90 was raised!!!

100% of funds raised have been donated to the Rotary National Bushfires Appeal.

It was amazing to see the local community extend love to people in need.

Creating an event where 100% of donations go straight to the cause is not easy! It requires the immense generosity from guests, volunteers,  caterers, suppliers, and vendors.

We were only able to host this event with the support of other caterers and vendors. So we want to say a BIG thank you to all those who helped us pull of this amazing event.
