SHINE FOUNDATION SUPPORTS TROJAN’S TREK
Two organisations which operate in the same space shared an anniversary this year. Both the Trojan’s Trek Foundation (TT) and Foundation Shine have just marked 10 years of assisting others struggling with mental health issues.
Neither organisation was aware of the occasion until Trojan’s Trek was invited to the Foundation Shine sharing of funds annual dinner at the Entertainment Centre in July this year.
The occasion was hosted by a bevy of well-known celebrities and was also attended by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Li AC Governor of South Australia.
The evening was graced by a number of the TT board together with a few past trekkers, all of whom reported on a great evening. As a result of the evening’s activities which included some excellent value silent auctions, the TT Foundation received a cheque for $7,500.00.
This is the first time the Foundation has benefitted from such philanthropic largess from another, not-for-profit.
In the words of Robyn the Chair; “By holding events that create awareness and funding we are able to channel this through to organisations currently providing quality support programs with excellent facilities but at the same time, building resources and engaging facilitators to drive our own Foundation Shine workshops in ultimately a facility of our own.”
