What a HAS-tastic month September 2022 was… it was full of events but boy, did we LOVE every minute of it!
HAS Foundation was super proud to be a finalist in the Westfield West Lakes Local Heroes Campaign.
The winner was announced this month. Congratulations to Katie from Semaphore Seabirds. We loved being a part of the process, met some great people and happily came away with a $5000 grant.
This grant will be used to increase our online resource tools to further support our palliative care families.
September was an incredible month for Community Partnerships at HAS Foundation as we were lucky enough to be chosen as charity partners for some fabulous events around Adelaide.
- The Australian Doctors Orchestra’s “Live for the Moment” Concert
- The South Australia Financial Industry’s’ “The Very LOONG Lunch”
- Co-charity partner for SA’s Mid-Winter Ball
Our first ever fundraising movie night was a huge success with over 80 kids and families joining us to celebrate the release of our ambassador Taryn Brumfitt’s latest documentary “Embrace Kids”.
And we finished the month off with our favourite Graze & Raise event. We feel so lucky to have such an amazing community around us that supports our HAS events. Thank you to everyone who held their own Graze & Raise events, thank you to those who joined us at Melt Henley Beach and HUGE thank you for everyone who donated or bid in our online auction. We raised over $50 000 which we will donate to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation to continue supporting palliative care families staying at the ‘Laklinyeri’ Beach House to create memories to last a lifetime.
As always, we’d like to say a big thank you and welcome to our HAS community, both old and new, for their incredible support. We could not do what we do without you all and we are extremely grateful to have you with us supporting Paediatric Palliative families in need.
Our annual Walk with a Pal event is on November 6th… and this year, our mates at Sea Salt Henley are going to serve delicious Egg and Bacon rolls and coffee before we head off! Lock it in the calendar, it is always such a beautiful morning and a wonderful way to CONNECT and REFLECT with Pals.
To register and pre-order your breakie bun and coffee, head to the events section of our website and find the Walk with a Pal event tab.
As always, Live for the Moment. Love for a Lifetime.
Ella, Jarrod and Team HAS.
