FDC and industry friends including Stylecraft, RJ Workspace, Thinking Works, Greenbox Architecture, Scope Productions, Impact AV, IQ Plumbing, Wizardry Imaging and Signs and AGS Structural are proud to announce our 9th Melbourne Cup Day fundraising event. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, 5th November at Dockside, Darling Harbour.

Following on from the $95,060.78 raised in 2012 – which was donated in full to Habitat for Humanity NSW, we are focusing our 2013 fundraiser on ‘Save Our Sons’ to support a joint endeavour to raise funds to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

This will be our most ambitious target ever set. We hope to harness the support of business friends and allied subcontractors to raise funds for a major breakthrough trial to be conducted in Australia for DMD in the areas of Synthetic Steroids, Utrophin Therapy and Nutritional Supplements.

This year we anticipate 300 corporate attendees including clients; architects; designers; project managers; business owners; product suppliers and media representatives. Entertainment for the day will involve a live auction, silent auction and Fashions on the Field competition. We will have a TAB link operating enabling online betting and live TV coverage as well as an EFTPOS facility for credit card transactions.

Should you wish to support us with this worthwhile fundraising event through ticket purchases, live or silent auction items or other donations; or for further information relating to sponsorship and support packages available, please contact Edwina Keighery on (02) 8117 5000 or email edwinak@fdcbuilding.com.au.

Every single dollar raised is fully audited and goes directly to the cause.
