2017 Region Campfire

Our annual Region campfire has supported various organisations over the years. This year we were fundraising for the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home. They're the only not-for-profit pound in Sydney and don't place a time limit on the animals in their care. Currently at Carlton, they have to move premises and are aiming to raise $3,000,000 for their new home. Proceeds from our event will go towards them achieving their goal. 

More information coming soon.
