Melbourne Cup 2016

7 November 2016

Melbourne Cup

It’s the race that stops the nation! And on Tuesday, 1 November 2016, it was also the race that helps young Aussies with high care needs to live their young lives with choice, independence and dignity.

Youngcare was so privileged to be beneficiary of marvellous Melbourne Cup events at Byblos, Story Bridge Hotel, Blackbird Bar & Restaurant Brisbane, Restaurant Two and Tattersall’s. Across these five venues, thanks to our generous supporters, over $16,000 was raised – THANK YOU!

A big shout-out goes to our ever-amazing volunteers who gave their time to sell sweeps and raffle tickets on the day, your generosity really does make all the difference as we work to ensure that no young Aussie has to wake up in aged care.
