The glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the Oscars was the theme for the Foundation Shine Inc. annual major fundraiser dinner. It was a wonderful night which raised some serious funding – $25,000 which resulted in Catherine House and Mental Illness Fellowship of South Australia Inc. both being presented with cheque donations of $12,000.00 each.
On the night further discussions took place with a very generous anonymous supporter, who has committed to a further $10,000.00 donation. Clearly, the work we are continuing to do would not be possible if it was not for the support we receive by people attending our functions – Our small, but incredibly enthusiastic and hard working committee appreciate your help immensely and in particular our event sponsors Ed Schild Estate, Cleveland Freightlines and Whiteline.
