Through the collaborative efforts of organisers, sponsors, prize givers, table purchasers, auction purchasers and donors, a total of $131,159.30 was handed over to Save Our Sons.

Bass Abboud from the charity gratefully accepted the cheque at a ‘handover’ ceremony, pictured below, held yesterday. The amount raised will fund vital research and medical trials for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) via Save Our Sons.

Thank you to everyone that helped make this year’s Melbourne Cup fundraising event such a success.
