Thanks to the generosity of our members at the recent Royal Children's Hospital fundraiser and a further contribution from the Society, the IPS presented a $10,000 cheque to the RCH Good Friday appeal headquarters at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on live TV.
Our President, Anthony Drakopoulos, said on TV that "The Ithacan Philanthropic Society has raised more than $100,000 since the Society was established".
It was a capacity crowd at the Society’s recent Good Friday Appeal Fundraiser with approximately $5,000 raised through door sales, donations, the raffle and rovani sales. We thank all our members who contributed to the fundraiser for their generosity.
