Last Friday night Club Five Dock RSL hosted their annual President’s Black Tie dinner, raising $25,000 for The Infants’ Home.
The event was a huge success and it was great to see so many guests getting into the spirit of the night and dressing up for the 1920s theme. The venue was beautiful, the food was great and the entertainment was amazing! It is a testament to Club Five Dock RSL’s ongoing connection with the community, and to their great event organisation, that members continue to return each year to this fundraising event.
The Infants’ Home was well represented at the dinner, with two tables filled with staff members, board members and parents and friends.
We were particularly pleased that Andy and Emma Davenport, whose child Harry is enrolled at The Infants’ Home, could join us for the night. Andy spoke to guests about how The Infants’ Home has helped his family, and given their son Harry, who has a profound global developmental delay, the opportunity to grow, learn and live life to the fullest while participating in our programs.
Following Andy’s speech, many people were eager to share their own stories and to find out more about who we are, and what we do. We were thrilled with the number of people who thanked us for our work and who wanted to find out more about how they could help us to continue it into the future.
We are deeply grateful for Club Five Dock RSL’s support and we look forward to continuing our relationship with this fantastic community-minded organisation.
