Andante Andante ABBA Choir Christmas Fundraiser 2018

This Event was organised by our wonderful Committee Members Anne and David who are members of the Andante Andante Choir Inc. AKA the ABBA Choir who hosted this incredible evening to elevate awareness of paediatric brain tumours and raise funds for Dainere’s Rainbow.

This evening was Sold Out prior to the Event and on the night the beautifully decorated venue was filled with guests who were entertained by this incredibly talented group of amazing people, feet were tapping, the entire room sang along, and the smiles and joy lit up the room. Everyone was certainly given a Christmas gift of music.

There were two fabulous lucky door prizes which were so generously donated by Anne and David, a raffle with three outstanding prizes on offer and scrumptious supper. Winning raffle ticket numbers were Green F79, Black D75 and Green F57.
Special mention of a truly special act of human kindness from Cleo who re-donated her raffle prize, which was auctioned off to raise an extra $60.
With 100% of all funds raised on the evening $1015.00 supporting the dedicated and vital research of Associate Professor Ziegler and his team at Sydney Children’s Hospital Kids Cancer Centre.

We were able to share information about Dainere, the fund and everything we do from awareness raising, fundraising, our upcoming events and supporting families through advocacy and lobbying.

With heartfelt gratitude to all those who attended the event, without your support we would not be able to work to give hope and create change.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to childhood brain cancer research at Sydney Children's Hospital

We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. Where you see the logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
