Through the collaborative efforts of organisers, sponsors, prize givers, table purchasers, auction purchasers and donors, a total of $172,486.74 was handed over to Uspace, St Vincent’s Private Hospital earlier this week at a ‘handover ceremony’.

All proceeds of this year’s event go to Uspace, in support of their efforts to fund vital research programs for young people suffering mental illness. Thank you to everyone that helped make this year’s Melbourne Cup fundraising event such a success. A photo of the handover ceremony is below.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 event!
