Appeal moves to Southbank

13 May 2014

Appeal moves to Southbank Image

The much-loved Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal found a new home in Southbank in April.

It was held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

The annual telethon raised a record $16,846,396.09 for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

It was the first time MCEC had hosted the event, which included the telethon throughout the day and the charity gala into the evening.

MCEC chief executive Peter King said he and his team were very happy to be involved and help out in any way they could.

“MCEC is a valuable community asset and we were incredibly proud to open our doors to the Victorian public, do it for the kids and deliver such a wonderful result in our first year as hosts,” Mr King said.

“Our venue has taken the event to a new level and we look forward to welcoming the Good Friday Appeal back for many more years to come,” he added.
