In recognition of the vital work Safe Haven Community delivers, our community united to contribute an impressive prize pool of auction items and experiences. The online auction culminated in a Charity Luncheon held in the Grand Room of The Calile Hotel on Friday May 7 2021. Julia Zemiro hosted the day, and facilitated a conversation between The Hon Shannon Fentiman MP, Senator Larissa Waters and ABC Journalist Nour Haydar. Thanks to our sponsors, guests, and our broad community, a total of $169,000 was raised in direct support of Safe Haven Community.
