RISE2 Foundation

Our very first fundraising Melbourne Cup Day lunch was a great success

November 7, 2023

THANK YOU to all our supporters who came out in style for our first fundraising Melbourne Cup Lunch for RISE2! Together we celebrated a fun, colourful day for a vital cause and we appreciate your support for our RISE2 families enormously.

Thank you too, to the professional team of The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast and Maeva Hospitality for your brilliant service, food and venue – you made our day extra special and we’re grateful.

Expert MC Rosanna Natoli was both superb and stunning in her bespoke headpiece and was the ideal judge of our Fashions on the Field. Rosanna has served on our voluntary RISE 2 – Restart In a Safe Environment Foundation Committee for two years and we value your time and care immensely, Rosanna.

Our acoustic performance was also sublime, Mason Hope, thank you for being part of our big day.

We had lots of generous support from sponsors and local businesses and we thank them all deeply. We hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful time! We look forward now, to next year.
