Last week Telco Together was fortunate to take part in the glitz and glam of the annual ACOMM Awards in Sydney as the official charity partner. This industry awards event is an important avenue for the telco industry to learn about how Telco Together helps disadvantaged Australians, and how telco industry organisations and staff can get involved.
We held a highly successful raffle with the added feature of an exclusive Golden Ticket prize draw for those generous enough to become a Friend of the Foundation by donating $5000. Over $58,000 was raised on the night, directly helping our Community Partners who work in the areas of mental health, homelessness, Indigenous health and youth unemployment.
After the dinner, the official Telco Together after-party raised additional funds, with our event sponsor donating $50 to the Foundation for everyone who attended.
Thanks to Communications Alliance for their ongoing support of Telco Together, Acquire Business Resourcing and the Vocus Group for donating prizes.
