The Taronga Foundation’s 12th annual fundraising event took place at the Ivy Room and the hilarious Effie was once again the MC for the evening.
The focus of the evening was on the critically endangered Corroboree Frog. With less than 100 of the iconic Australian Frogs in the wild, Taronga is working with NSW National Parks to save the species through a state of the art breeding program and facility.
The Taronga Foundation relies on the support of corporate partners and individuals to sustain these conservation efforts. “We were overwhelmed by the goodwill and support received on the night and a total of $206,000 was raised from the evening”. These funds will support Taronga’s efforts to conserve the Corroboree Frog including the use of purpose-built refrigerated breeding units prior to being released into Chytrid-free tubs in Kosciusko National Park.
Innovative Production Services are proud to support the Taronga Foundation Dinners. We supply our services at a greatly reduced rate to assist in raising of funds for the event.
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for last Thursday. Everything ran so smoothly and looked fantastic, you guys are awesome and make Taronga look great so thank you again! – Jessica Hair, Events Manager
