Dreams and lights create fundraising delights

Community fundraisers have shone brightly in recent months by raising money to provide services to the families we support.

Beaumaris couple Rob van Stokrom and Leonie Hill chose Very Special Kids as the charity partner for their annual Christmas Lights display. Hundreds of visitors came from far and wide to see one of Bayside’s most impressive displays, helping to raise $7,000. There were enthusiastic visitors, with a number of girls taking a break from a hospice stay and getting right into the Christmas spirit.

To fundraising at a slightly difference pace, Dream Drives Melbourne raised more than $9,000 at their inaugural ‘A Very Special Dream Day’ fundraiser. The luxury care hire company drove some of the world’s most expensive sports cars down to the hospice to brighten up some children’s days. Engines were revving as the fleet of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches wowed the children.
