All for the cause
Our ambassadors and supporters have been out this year, bringing awareness and donations for Mirabel with enthusiasm and joy.
Our annual Mirabel Ladies Lunch was as spectacular as ever, held in February as a garden party in the gorgeous surrounds of Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens. Guests heard heartfelt personal stories of our carers and their kids, while also lifting our spirits with their generosity on the day. We remain indebted to the dedicated and generous women who pulled together such a magnificent fund-raising event.
The Grassroots Sports Club held a hugely successful AFL lunch in March, attended by everybody from AFL supremo Gil McLachlan to many retired stars. Carlton great Anthony Koutoufides and Bulldog premiership player Tom Boyd spoke about their incredible journeys while Things of Stone and Wood provided the tunes. The crowd also heard from Jacob Darkin, a Mirabel Alumni, who movingly told his story of resilience and overcoming adversity. Thank you to all the sponsors on the day and the hard working GSC Committee who made it happen.
