Carbon’s Big Charity Poker Night – 26th February 2016
February 26, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Carbon Business Group held a recent poker night at Warwick Hall, raising funds for Mission Australia. More than 120 clients, friends and family attended the event making it a huge success.
The evening kicked off with a representative from Mission Australia talking about what the charity does, and how the donations will be used. “Mission Australia integrate our services to reduce homelessness and strengthen communities across Australia, by helping people secure jobs, receive an education, find housing and develop important life skills. We’re so grateful for the work that Carbon do for us on a regular basis. Their efforts are really helping the youths in our care.”
It was a close finale, but Steve Mullen cleared the table, taking home the top prize of $2,500. An auction, raffle and sausage sizzle took place, adding to the donation pool for Mission Australia. In total, $5,570 was raised, making it Carbon’s biggest poker event to date. Carbon hold a monthly poker night at their Osborne Park office on the last Wednesday of every month. Their next big charity event is a bogan bingo night on Friday 10th June, which aims to help the homeless by raising funds for Vinnies.
Carbon’s Co-Founder Jamie Davison described why the company chose to be involved with Mission Australia: “We strongly believe in giving back to the community as our business grows, however we don’t just want to hand out cash. Mission Australia is one of the few charities that will allow us to interact with the young people.”
