Bishopp attends the Red Frogs 20th Anniversary Gala14th June 2017
The Red Frogs Gala is an annual event hosted by Red Frogs Australia and last night, Tuesday the 13th of June, Bishopp had the pleasure of attending this special night in celebration of their 20th Anniversary. The Gala is an exquisite evening of food and entertainment and the annual premier fundraising dinners provide guests with a greater understanding of the issues facing the young people of today.
For the past few years, Bishopp has been a proud sponsor of Red Frogs – a support program that provides direct relief to Australian youths from alcohol and drug related issues. Their presence is widely recognised and their services well sought after at Schoolies Week – a traditional week-long celebration on the Gold Coast for high-school graduates. The iconic Red Frogs provide support to over 75,000 school leavers, distribute over six tonnes of Red Frog lollies, cook over 75,000 pancakes every year and offer emotional support through what can often be a challenging week.
Bishopp’s very own Steve Davies even graced the Gala stage, speaking fondly to the crowd of the early days with “Boss Frog” Andy Gourley, the founder and Director of Red Frogs Australia. The evening was illuminated with bright lights, glitz and glamour and included the thrilling live and silent auctions that resulted in raising a grand total of $220,000. This is a fantastic effort from everyone who attended and will assist the Red Frogs in maintaining their support program for those in need.
Thank you to the Red Frogs Team for a wonderful evening and we hope to see you all again next year!
