Awards and applause for Piggy Bank Appeal

It was an evening of bubbles, balloons and banter, all in shades of pink, with a performance from X-Factor contestant Jaymie Deboucherville, and entertainment from host Geoff Cox of Coxy’s Big Break.

The Piggy Bank Appeal Finale event celebrated the huge six-figure sum of $1,157,000 raised for Very Special Kids, and the incredible businesses, organisations and individuals that made it happen.

Very Special Kids expresses its gratitude to everyone that made the 2014 Piggy Bank Appeal a success.
