Bivianos annual fundraising dinner will fund more than 40 riders for a year at Riding for the Disabled Tall Timbers at Box Hill.
More than 200 people attended the Gala Dinner at the Dural restaurant and helped raise a staggering $55,000 for RDA.
The evening was supported by Minister for Multiculturalism and Disability and Castle Hill MP Ray Williams MP and The Hills Mayor Michelle Byrne with Dr Jim Taggart acting as MC and auctioneer for the night.
RDA Ambassador 9-year-old Mackenzie Savva, her mum Tanya Savva and Anne-Maree Neal spoke to guests about what RDA means to them. Mackenzie has been riding there since she was three years old and stole the show. Mag Hosny marketing manager for Biviano’s said the amount was more than double what their target had been.
“Biviano’s would like to say a big thank you to who attended and supported the Annual Hills Charity Gala Ball.
“Your generosity meant that the event was sold out and were able to over achieve our fundraising goal to help support : the RDA – Box Hill Centre … $55,000, against our target of $25,000.”
Kerry Souter said: “We are so gratefull for Biviano’s support.
