$25k raised at Property Council of Australia's lunch

11 January 2016





Guests raised their glasses and over $25,000 for Act for Kids at the Property Council of Australia’s annual Downtown Christmas Lunch in Brisbane last month.

More than 1100 guests attended the lunch where volunteers sold raffle tickets, raising $25,450 for the Property Industry Foundation, which supports Act for Kids.

The raffle prize of a $10,000 Hardy Brothers Jewellers voucher was much sought after, with Tanya Martin from Lendlease drawn as the lucky winner at the end of the lunch.

Guests enjoyed delicious food and great entertainment including special guest, Peter Helliar from Channel Ten’s The Project, said Act for Kids CEO Dr Neil Carrington.

“It was great to see Peter taking the time to support such a great cause,” said Neil.

“We are so grateful for all those who supported us: the Property Council of Australia, Property Industry Foundation, Hardy Brothers Jewellers and our wonderful volunteers for their time on the day.

“This was an incredible display of Christmas spirit, for those who need it most.”
