align.me is a significant supporter of Cancer Council Victoria via the marketing and event support that we provide to the Tuxedo Junction charity ball – a charity fund raiser conceived of by my wife Kate Bonser.
In addition to the work of the broader align.me team throughout 2016 and 2017, our Yulia Edirisinghe played an even bigger role contributing many hours of personal time to the events marketing.
We’ve just learned that these efforts, and those of a large group of supporters and friends, have delivered the most successful event ever.
The Tuxedo Junction 2017 Melbourne Committee is excited to announce we have raised cash and grants support totalling $250,000.
The recipients of projects supported by Tuxedo Junction Melbourne including Post-Doctoral Fellowships, The Michael Leon and Hannah Roth Cancer Research Award and The Chris Dobinson Cancer Research Award will be announced shortly. The Caneva Family Award 2017 will also contribute to a Cancer Council Victoria Post-Doctoral Fellowship.
Many thanks to our customers who joined as our guests, and to the align.me team. We can all feel very proud.
