A Communiteer collaboration with 10x10 Philanthropy

Thank you 10x10 Philanthropy and their wonderful 10x10 Sydney August volunteer committee for putting together another brilliant event! We are so thrilled to have been a part of it!

The 10x10 Philanthropy Sydney event for August was an immense success, bringing together over 130 attendees to support three incredible charities: Green Music Australia, Share the Dignity and Watarrka Foundation.

The objective of the night, as it is for every 10x10 Philanthropy event, was to raise as much money for the three charities as possible. All attendees donated at least $100 to attend the event, and were given the choice to pledge that donation to 1 or more of the charities that presented on the night.

The charities then pitched to the audience for the pledges, explaining the important work their organisations were doing and how they would use any funds donated. The charities then addressed a round of questions from the audience as well as the evening’s ‘Dragon for Good’, Jess Miller, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney, who inspired and energised the attendees.

The event was hosted by Dentons, who provided their stylish office as the venue as well as catering for the guests, with fabulous wine provided by Cumulus Wines and chilled and crisp beer provided by Young Henrys.

Special gratitude also go to Aussie, AHL Investments, Dentons, Intralinks and Aitken Murray Capital Partners for donating to the event, as well as Afterpay and The Beluga Foundation for providing ongoing and crucial support.

The event was a great success, with the three charities sharing a total donation pool over $20,000, far exceeding the original $10,000 goal! 10 of the attendees on the night had also volunteered to be part of the Committee for the next 10x10 event in Sydney to continue the sustainable model that forms part of the core 10x10 philosophy.
