What a night!
A massive thank you to all our Give500 donors and everyone who attended our inaugural Give500 Pitch Night.
Each of our 3 shortlisted organisations did an amazing job pitching their project to a room packed with donors and guests.
Congratulations to our winner of the $15,000 grant: Junction Support Services for their Therapy Dog Program.
As part of the process, we worked with each of the finalist organisations to produce a short Pitch video, and we are happy to share these with you now see links below.
Junction Support Services – Therapy Dog program
Survivors of Suicide & Friends – Solstice the Documentary
Aspect Riverina School – Building Resilience on the Spectrum
Our two runners-up were expecting $2,500 each, but thanks to an additional contribution from ACE Radio 2AY with Philanthropic Partners, the Geoff and Helen Handbury Foundation, they will both receive $6,500 towards their project. This was an unexpected and greatly appreciated bonus announced on the night.
Our thanks to Albury Business Connect for standing with us as our inaugural Business Partner and Paul from Supergoat media for capturing our 3 finalists projects and to our wonderful MC Gaye Pattison
We are so proud of the success we achieved in our first year and look forward to doing it all again bigger and stronger in 2022.
