We were selected as a charity partner for the 2015 Convicts for a Cause event on Saturday November 7 – thank you to Cystic Fibrosis, the Rotary Clubs of Perth and Mt Lawley!
This unique fundraiser sees top Perth executives, community leaders, politicians, government officials and other local identities locked up in the historical cell blocks of Fremantle Prison. The $500 bail raised by inmates to secure their release is channeled into charity, as are proceeds from an auction and themed cocktail event held on the night.
We had convicts put behind bars (briefly!), gangs (like ours - click here to see our grand total) and others who preferred to attend in costume. With tickets only $30 it was the best night of fun and entertainment we've seen in years!
Here's a great write-up on the event by David Chambers which explains everything.
We were lucky enough to be in the news with our Junior Ambassador Ajay McCarthy who made his first debut at this event. He did an incredible job and we thank him and his family for their great support.
Here are a couple of great pics from the night:
