On Friday October 12, 200 of Perth’s young professionals attended Sounds Like Summer, an event set in a beautiful marquee on the Matilda Bay Foreshore, overlooking the stunning Perth cityscape, in aid of raising funds for the Cancer Council WA.
With touches of yellow throughout, the event gave guests the opportunity to enjoy after work drinks with a difference, with mouth-watering courses from Herb Faust Foods, gourmet pizzas by the Pizza Lounge, beer from Gage Roads and delicious wines by Pemberley, a cocktail on arrival courtesy of FUSIONice vodka and some decadent macaron pops from Cake Love Couture Cakes. Guests also grooved along to tunes by the Collective Conscious DJs, and eagerly participated in a fabulous live and silent auction, and fantastic raffle. Special guest Miss Universe Australia Renae Ayris also attended, to show her support for the worthy cause.
A new initiative was also introduced with the ‘Top 50 for 50′, where 50 guests were invited to each donate $50 per month for 12 months, resulting in a considerable grant being filled with the Cancer Council WA at the end of the year.
Just over $30,000 was raised for the organisation, which is a fantastic achievement, a huge thanks to everyone who was involved or came along.
