$10 million anonymous donation made to Estia.

Estia – conducted under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia - http://www.estia.org.au - cares for people with special needs, and provides respite assitance for their carers. Estia assists many Kytherian-Australians.

The donation was announced on 1st October 2013 - at the Estia Fundraising Dinner 2013

On the 27th September 2013, the Estia Foundation of Australia held it's biennial Fundraising Dinner at Le Montage, Lilyfield.

The night was extremely successful.

A car was raffled off to one lucky supporter. A holiday, television, vouchers and jewellery items were also amongst some of the prizes to be won.

Once again there were quality items within both the Silent and Live Auctions with most goods being sold. Approximately $400,000 was raised, but funds are still being finalised.

The highlight of the evening was the unprecedented announcement that $10 million was being donated by an anonymous Estia supporter.

A historic moment for the Estia Foundation and indeed the Greek-Australian community in Australia.

Management of Estia take this opportunity to thank all involved in the evening and for their generous support.
