A special thank you to our long-time partner the AMP Foundation for their generous matched funding and support, as well as our AMP colleagues who helped make last night’s event possible.

Finally, thank you and congratulations to Bronwyn, Alicia and Rebecca for inviting us all to experience – and support – the life-changing work you do.

The amounts pledged to each organisation so far are:

Enrise: $73,100
