What a great night had by all at this year's Melbourne Cocktail Party. It was the perfect way to kick start a big week for the Foundation and in 3 hours raised over $7,000.
The Melbourne Cocktail party on Saturday November 5, saw close to 120 UF friends gather at the Botanical in Melbourne for drinks and nibbles, at the end of the Spring Racing Carnival, and the start of a big week for the Unicorn Foundation.
We have not held an event in our spiritual home for a little while, 3 years in fact, as we have spread our wings at successful events in Sydney and last year’s gala dinner in Adelaide was such an amazing experience. We thought it was time to see our old friends again and Saturday November 5 although a small affair, was the perfect way to touch base.
We are so grateful to those wo donated raffle prizes and we know those who won them were very happy! Thank you to Lesley Clark who shared her story about living with NET Cancer and to all our volunteers who helped out on the night selling raffle tickets.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
