Annual Thank You Drinks

November 10, 2016

Yemirjana-with-canberra-milk-chequesterday, 9 November 2016, DVCS hosted our annual Thank You Drinks.  This is an opportunity for us to formally thank and acknowledge all the wonderful organisations, businesses and individuals who make significant contributions towards DVCS.  We are grateful for the cash donations, in-kind donations and time volunteered by all of these wonderful organisations, businesses and people.  We simply could not do what we do without their support.

In preparation for the event, DVCS reflected on all the donations, awards, partnerships and other significant events that we have been a part of over the last twelve months.  What a year!  When all of these wonderful things are written down together, it really makes us proud of the wonderfully beautiful, caring and giving community that we are so very proud to be a part of.  So, we thought we would share with everyone how lucky we are to have such amazing support and we encourage everyone to support our supporters, this means shopping locally, supporting your local sporting teams, study locally, enjoy local entertainment and media and engage local service providers when possible.

Congratulations to all our award winners:
