Cocktail Party A Night To Remember

It was a night to remember and celebrate when 300 McAuley Community Services for Women supporters joined MC Rebecca Maddern for the TwentyFour/7 Cocktail Party at the National Gallery of Victoria on March 5.

As well as a great celebration the event raised more than $150,000 to keep open McAuley Care, Victoria’s only accessible 24/7 safe house. It was also a chance to help people better understand family violence.

Author Susan Berg, who recently released her memoir, The Girl Who Lived, gave a chilling insight into how her life was dramatically affected by family violence.  

We thank the remarkable events committee: Jodie Holckner, Laura Held, Sandra Jacobs, Eleni Karamihos, Amanda Oliver, Sarah Orloff, Monique Rosshandler, Emily Slade and Kim Thurlow, for making the night such a huge success.
