It is difficult to imagine circumstances less conducive to fundraising than a state of emergency, a curfew, widespread economic shutdown and recession.
But the fact is, children are still dying from cancer, and we need to be there for them. That is why, in the face of so many obstacles, we pressed on with this event.
The Million Dollar Lunch Giving Day, raised $569,254.
We are incredibly grateful for this result. While it is well short of the seven figure sums we are accustomed to seeing from The Million Dollar Lunch, in these circumstances it is a truly outstanding achievement.
Thank you is not enough
Thank you everyone who pre-pledged, hosted a table to fundraise with family and friends, cycled on Zwift and donated what they could on the day, along with:
Our cornerstone partners: Crown Resorts, AFL, BetEasy, Lexus of Blackburn and Virgin Australia
Our Matched Donor Partners:
- PDF Food Services
- Portland House Foundation
- Arrotex Pharmaceuticals,
- River Capital
Thank you, Channel Seven’s Hamish McLachlan, for interviewing Hayden and his siblings in this campaign video.
We wish everyone best wishes and good health as we continue to move through these challenging times. We hope to be seeing your smiling faces in the room once again at our stellar fundraising event The Million Dollar Lunch in 2021.
