O’Connor Marketing Return to FIGS Ball for Third Consecutive Year
For the third consecutive year, Sales and marketing firm O’Connor Marketing was honoured to attend the Friends in Giving Gold Ball – an exceptional night of fundraising for vulnerable 16 to 24-year olds.
The Friends in Giving Society is an Australian based society that helps to raise funds for Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm to offer support and refuge to young adults in need across the nation. The facility accommodates 18 16-24 years olds for three-month periods at a time. During their stay with the centre, the young people are provided with help in their recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. The centre also offers educational services and mental health counselling while providing the children with valuable life skills such as vocational training and creative programs. After the children have graduated from their time at Triple Care Farm, they are offered continuous support for six months, under the ‘stepping out program’.
Each year the Friends in Giving Society holds a fundraising ball. For the previous 29 years, guests are invited to take part in auctions, entertainment and a networking dinner.
The 2017 event was held at the Sydney Hilton on the 11th of November. The hotel is based in the heart of Sydney’s CBD and boasts a luxury atmosphere for a hugely successful evening of fundraising to help struggling children. Committee members from the charity pay for administrative and overhead costs to ensure that all money raised from the event goes directly towards the rehabilitation program at Triple Care Farm.
O’Connor marketing understands the importance of supporting local causes, particularly those that aim to help the future generations, which given the right tools will be able to lead successful lives in their chosen careers and personal lives. The firm has worked with an extensive range of charities since their inception and frequently discusses how much of a difference every cent towards charitable organisations helps children in need.
