Graphic: Turosi Giving raised $120,000 for RFDS
On Saturday 22 October, Turosi Giving held their annual charity ball at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne. With the theme this year being “There is no place like home,” Turosi Giving chose the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) as their charity partner, raising an incredible $120,000 to support the organisation to deliver health care to rural and remote communities.
Turosi Giving was established more than 10 years ago on behalf of Turosi employees, and since then has distributed more than $1 million to Australian charities.
RFDS Victoria would like to extend its thanks to all the partners and sponsors of the ball who provided their support. This includes:
- Chillfreeze Logistics and Storage
- GPS Electrical Services
- Linco Food Systems
- Laverton Cold Storage
- APG Workforce
- Don Watson Transport
