Brisbane Luncheon 2021

For the first time in 17 months, The Ireland Funds Australia held a face-to-face fundraising event, and it was amazing to be back amongst our friends and supporters at the beautiful Hillstone St. Lucia for our 2021 Brisbane Luncheon. More than 160 guests were thrilled to be out and about again as they joined us on a lovely Friday afternoon.

Chairman Yvonne Le Bas welcomed guests back to Brisbane and thanked our major sponsors and supporters including Australian Radio Network, Diageo, Charles Curran AC, Coolmore AustraliaThe Star Entertainment Group, Miriam Innes, our Board Members, Governors, Associates, Benefactors and Young Leaders.

Yvonne gave an update on the work of the Fund here in Australia; acknowledging how extremely hard this pandemic has been on the fundraising capabilities of the Fund and most importantly for the projects we support, many of whom have been very severely impacted, but have shown resilience and determination.

With the help of our friends and supporters on the day we managed to raise approximately $42,000 to help our projects in need. 

We also showcased The Heart of The Community Fund, launched by Global Ireland Funds CEO Caitriona Fottrell, this fund is an immediate investment in Ireland's communities.
