HAS Foundation Raises $75,000

A couple of weeks have passed now since our Mothers Day Luncheon at the Hilton Adelaide – and to be honest we are just coming back to earth. It was such a fun day. The energy in the room was electric – right from the start.

Hosted by Rosanna Mangiarelli from Channel 7’s Today Tonight we were truly spoilt by the cast of Aladdin. We were swept away on the magic carpet listening to Graeme Iassko and Shubshri Kandiah.

Min and Jane from One Rundle Trading Co  produced a beautiful parade showcasing some of their new winter range.

After lunch, the entertainment continued. Joel Jackson and Andrew De Silva got the crowd up on their feet dancing – they really had the room swinging. A huge highlight was Angela encouraging Ainsley to join them on stage – what a treat to have these three guys perform together.

We would like to thank everyone who was involved on the day and all our guests who came along and supported our luncheon with The Advertiser. We were so humbled by all the donations big and small, a massive thank you to the businesses, individuals and people who were so generous.
