Our core fundraising focus for 2016 has been the Elizabeth factory upgrade. Currently, the outside common area has very limited shade and seating for our 90 employees. We are hoping with the money raised to build a pergola and seating area so our clients with disability, who work at the factory can enjoy their lunch outside all year round.
Current Project Total: $11,602.15
Our first event contributing to this fantastic project was the 2016 City to Bay. The 18th of September saw over 60 staff, friends, family and stakeholders run/walk in support of Barkuma. We are pleased to report that everyone made it to the finish line, managing to raise a massive $9,768.39 - well exceeding last year's effort of $2,453. Bring on City to Bay 2017!
Next came the 15th of October, where over 90 of our supporters discovered what our pets really do when we leave the house. The 2016 Barkuma Movie Fundraiser added another $1109.76 to our fundraising total, with a special mention to Haigh's Chocolates and Smith's Potato Chips who contributed the prizes to our 'donate-to-play' pet inspired games.
