FICAP fundraiser ready to rock
The countdown is on to FICAP’s “Who wants to be a RockStar” night this Thursday at The Ivy Ballroom.
FICAP, the Financial Industry Community Aid Program, has announced its list of auction items up for grabs alongside the annual charity concert.
A track day in a Lotus, dinner with Aussie cricket legend Brett Lee, a luxury weekend for two at Hope Estate, mentoring with Macquarie’s Shemara Wikramanayake, a bottle of Penfolds Grange Hermitage 2002, passes to Royal Randwick, and the opportunity to train with the Australian Sevens rugby team are just a handful of the exceptional prizes up for auction.
FICAP director Marnie McLaren said: “We are really excited to be able to offer so many incredible items up for auction this year, many of which are experiences money typically just cannot buy”.
“The introduction of an online auction system means more people are able to bid on these spectacular prizes,” she added.
The annual RockStar event enters its 11th year in 2017. All funds raised through the auction will go to FICAP three nominated charities: Raise, The Mirabel Foundation, and The Shepherd Centre.
FICAP is shaking things up this year, moving its marquee event to The Ivy Ballroom due to a significant increase in demand from the financial services community.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016, FICAP raised more than $200,000 – bringing its overall fundraising total to more than $1.35 million to date. You can relive the 2016 RockStar event here.
FICAP started in early 2006 as a way for financial services professionals to give back to the community. Its aim is to raise money for charities that benefit young Australians and their families.
FICAP’s committee is made up of several industry participants who are part of a number of major advice, platform and banking groups. For further information visit FICAP’s website.
