On Friday 13 May, Fahan School Year 12 girls hosted a very successful cocktail event to raise money for their two chosen charities, Rural Alive and Well (RAW) and The Freya Fund.
RAW is an organisation helping individuals, families and the community through mental health issues, with a focus on suicide prevention. The Freya Fund was established to support families with critically or chronically ill children with severe disabilities. Both charities directly support local Tasmanians.
The evening was attended by over 120 people and featured performances from special guest alumni, students and staff. The performances were outstanding and showcased the incredible talent that exists within our School Community.
The Year 12 girls did a wonderful job of securing over 20 prizes for their silent auction. They also acquired a number of big ticket items, leading to some competitive bidding, in what was a very entertaining live auction conducted by Mark Thomas.
“The Year 12 girls really enjoyed working together and hosting the event and all the performances were very well received. It was lovely to see the incredible support for our charities and to know that our fundraising efforts will go a long way," said Head Girl, Elizabeth Browne.
The evening raised over $11,000 to support the charities this year.
