We are thrilled to announce that because of your incredibly generous support, together we raised $600,000 at the recent “Everything is Possible” Gala Dinner presented by Prestige Cars Group! But that is not all…..everyone who pledged or bought a bone had their donation and impact doubled by philanthropists Nicola and Andrew Forrest, bringing the total raised to a whopping, record-breaking $1,025,000!
