Long Lunch fundraiser was an awesome event

We have just had our major fundraiser for the year which will help sustain the organisation and allow us to continue to deliver the quality care required for children and families. This is crucial as True Colours receives no direct government funding.

The True Colours Long Lunch was Annah Stretton’s inspiration as she saw the opportunity to give people a fun afternoon of watching the Melbourne Cup whilst having good food, wine and entertainment. The proceeds of this afternoon are then donated to True Colours.

It has become a very popular fundraiser, but requires a lot of organising over the months leading up to it. Diane O’Sullivan (Friends of True Colours Coordinator) took this role over from Annah and has contributed hours of her time behind the scenes working with the ‘Friends of True Colours’ Team, and the sponsors, to create a fantastic day. Deborah Mundy and Brian Hermann have generously donated the gorgeous venue of The Narrows Landing for the last three years, and it is a perfect venue.

It is a high calibre occasion and the quality of this event fits well with the philosophy of True Colours, which is to ‘give our best’ when working with the children and families we support, to ensure quality of life is enhanced.

Inspirational speaker Barbara Berezowski an Olympian athlete said the following:

“Life is precious because time is short. Whether you are fortunate enough to live to be 100 or not, live each and every day to its fullest. Where there is a hurdle in life…. think your way to find solutions and use your energy to accentuate the positive”.

Having people capture the vision of the True Colours philosophy, embracing it, donating their time, funds and resources to underpin the delivery of care required, is a way of overcoming ‘the hurdles, finding solutions to accentuate the positive’ so that fundraisers like the True Colours Long Lunch have positive benefits for all concerned. Thanks again to all of you who helped make this day the success it was. It was truly awesome, and service delivery to children and families continues because of this event.
