Silver Chef boss Allan English and the gang over at Morgans stockbroking in Brisbane are giving each other high fives after pulling off a pretty impressive fundraiser this week. They managed to squeeze more than 150 guests into the Bille Brown Studio on Tuesday night for a “collective giving’’ bash which was able to generate just over $160,000 in donations.
The recipients were four social enterprises, including a women’s circus and music broadcaster. It was the first event in Brisbane for The Funding Network, an innovative non-profit project which English chaired until recently. The Morgans Foundation and the government-run Creative Partnerships each tipped in $40,000 in matching funds on the night.
