PaKT4Change Officially Launches
On Tuesday 7th June we officially launched PaKT4Change at the Hilton South Wharf, Melbourne. It was a wonderful night of celebration sharing our work, our vision, some exciting auction bidding (!) and some music. This event was sponsored by Rodine Australia and supported with items for auctioning by D&G Solutions Group, the North Melbourne Football Club, The Australian Philharmonic and Pops Orchestra and Crown Resorts Foundation. We thank them for their generous support.

True long term impact requires collective investment from all sectors, including the general public – that’s you! So here’s your chance. Donate now to our crowdfunding campaign, share the link and spend the day feeling good about the unique difference you’re contributing to in Australia. Ready, set, GO!
A warm invitation to corporate colleagues and supporters
This auspicious event acts as an opportunity to introduce the work of PaKT4Change, to share stories of significant change in our journey so far, to engage key players in discussions about the need for innovative approaches to family support, and to offer good people in the corporate world a fresh, unique chance to contribute to brighter futures for our kids and young people.
Drinks and canapés will be provided on the night, shared amidst music and a short presentation. A silent auction will offer some enticing items and most importantly, we welcome your input into informal dialogues about collectively making a difference. It is anticipated the event will run until approximately 6pm and we would be genuinely honoured to have you join us.
