South Australian Charity Luncheon hosted by ANZIIF is a huge success!
On Friday 14th May, ANZIIF hosted an incredibly successful ‘South Australian Charity Luncheon’ celebrating the ANZIIF community, while rallying to support Camp Quality.
Over 18 months in the making, the hurdles of 2020 were pushed aside as ANZIIF and Camp Quality worked together to host 410 guests, raising over $18,000! The night included a silent auction, raffle and incredible wine wall - featuring 250 Australian greats!
Camp Quality CEO Deborah Thomas addressed the audience, sharing the heart of Camp Quality, its goals and aspirations for the future and how it emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic stronger than ever.

Long term Camp Quality Volunteer and cancer survivor Shaun Li also took to the stage, sharing his personal experiences with Camp Quality as a child and as an adult. Shaun shared how he has incorporated his love of photography to capture the joy and magic moments on Camp Quality Camps, that are then shared back with the kids and the families so they can treasure the memory forever.

This achievement will help Camp Quality send more kids and families to camp to make new and happy memories, giving a precious break from the trauma of a cancer diagnosis.
