Bushfire appeal donation

Thanks to everyone who came along to Ignite Sydney 11 last night, and helped us by purchasing a ticket and having a few drinks at the bar.

We were able to meet our minimum drink spend, which means we’ll be passing on the profits from ticket sales to the Red Cross bushfire appeal.

We’ll be slinging around $4,360 their way as soon as the funds have cleared. Thanks again for your contribution.

Supporting the bushfire appeal

For the past few events we’ve been donating the profits from Ignite Sydney tickets to Oz Harvest – they are a great charity who operate locally, and we’re really happy to support their work.

The plan for Ignite Sydney 11 was to continue in this tradition – but the bushfires of October 2013 have occurred, and we’d like to do our bit to help.

So we’re planning to donate the profits from ticket sales to Ignite Sydney 11 to the Red Cross bushfire appeal to help support this worthy and immediate cause.
