Our inaugural Voyage of a Lifetime Luncheon at the Medallion Club, Etihad Stadium on 28 August 2015 was a great success, a sell out with approximately 160 people in attendance. Attendees included our founding sponsors, Lend Lease, City of Melbourne and Places Victoria along with other corporates, directors, volunteers and ex-voyagers.
With Peter Hitchener of Channel 9 News as the MC, attendees enjoyed a variety of speeches from our Chairman, Alan Edenborough, The Minister for Ports, Luke Donellan and Ex-Voyager and Director, Matt McDonald.
Matt’s passionate speech about the benefits he’s enjoyed from his Alma experience and the remarkable effect he witnessed on the lives of others, impacted everyone in attendance. A competitive auction followed. The bidding was intense, raising lots of funds for Alma’s restoration. Approximately $40,000 was raised on the day.
The event would not have been possible without sponsorship from Etihad Stadium, Docklands Chamber of Commerce and Barfold Estate, variety of auction prize donors and our very own Karin Otto who did the graphic design.
