This invitation-only event was hosted by AMP Foundation and featured four charities close to the hearts of AMP’s ‘Unsung Heroes’ - employees who volunteer with or serve on the board of a charity.
$59,100 was raised in support of Dress for Success Sydney, Paint the Town REaD, Reledev and Operation Smile, thanks to the incredible support from the audience, and the AMP Foundation - our generous event partners who match-funded every dollar raised.
Dress for Success Sydney promotes the economic independence of women in need by providing, freeÂ of charge, professional clothing, a network of support and the career development tools.
