Sydney, Wednesday 9 April 2014

Another amazing night at Macquarie Group. Four outstanding presentations and a room full of enthusiastic, generous people - over 170 of them in fact...

An incredible turnout of both familiar faces and lots of new folks gathered on a warm evening to hear from the organisations below. There was a real energy and buzz in the room as the pledging exceeded $85,000. As always, thanks go out to: everyone at Macquarie; the presenters, staff and their advocates; our own TFN volunteers; and of course, all the generous donors in the room. A brilliant effort!
