Paul Newmans Own!
How lucky are we at Finnan's Gift to receive this unbelievable support from Paul Newman's Own! These are the phone calls that bring tears to your eyes, because you know so much good will follow. My husband and I work incredibly hard on Finnan's Gift (all voluntarily) to help save and improve the lives of children requiring cardiac care at The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne. With this unbelievable generosity from the Newman's Own Foundation, we will deliver on our 2019 goal of donating 3 'state of the art' Infant Warmers to the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne. We are so overwhelmed with gratitude. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts Paul Newman's Own!
One of our favourite Finnan's Gift events each year is our Team Finnan's Gift at the Melbourne Marathon! Still going strong into it's 7th year, our team of over 50 runners, walkers and cheer-ers we up at the crack of dawn to get fit and fundraise for a very special cause. To everyone who participated on the day, whether you ran, cheered someone on or simply stopped past to say hello, we are so incredibly grateful and honoured to have your support!
Our Team Finnan's Gift community is so special to us, and we are already itching to start running at this years Melbourne Marathon!
To the Incredible Golfers
at Ray White!
Sometimes you get news that absolutely blows you away, and when I learnt that the team at Ray White raised over $10,000 for Finnan's Gift at their Annual Golf Day, it's fair to I was over the moon with gratitude!
It means the world to us to have your support each year, and we feel so honoured, proud, and grateful that you all helped to make a difference to children and families battling Congenital Heart Disease.
To everyone who helped coordinate, played a round or was there cheering the team on - thank you, thank you, thank you!
The wonderful people at the Fortnum Foundation are some of the most special, generous and caring people I've ever been fortunate enough to meet. Their ongoing support, passion and dedication to Finnan's Gift is so very humbling, and we feel so honoured that you're part of the Finnan's Gift community.
From the bottom of our hearts, Oliver and I extend our most sincere thanks to the team at Fortnum Foundation, and we hope that you all feel so incredibly proud every day knowing that you are making a difference to children in need.
Oh what a Night!!
Op Shop Ball 2018
When you put great people, great music and a great cause into the one room, something magical happens - and that's exactly what our 2018 Op Shop Ball was - simply magic.
Every year, Oliver and I get goosebumps thinking that there are 400 people in a room who are there for our little boy, and our hearts overflow with gratefulness and thanks to everyone for being there.
Of course, it takes a small village to pull together an event of this size, and we could not be more thankful to the Shore family, the Sims family, to Ray White, and to everyone who bought a ticket, table or donated something to be auctioned.
