The fluorescent decade that was the 90’s was resurrected and in full, radical swing last Friday night for Human’s 90s-themed birthday party. It was a great success and drew a great crowd who all got down to some sick 90s tunes!
We’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket, indulged in a beverage (or two), purchased merchandise and donated to our wishing well on the night.
Partying for purpose was not only about having fun, a dance and revelling in 90s fashion, but about bringing the diverse members of the Human community together; a community strengthened over the years by the endless encouragement received by our peers, colleagues and program participants. Our desire to continue delivering quality, creativity programs and workshops to young people throughout Australia was reflected in the joyous atmosphere at the Fox Hotel.
For those of you who donned fluro, Britney-style plaid skirts and an abundance of denim, thanks for getting into the 90’s vibe. We’d like to extend a particular shout-out to the girls who braved it and came as the Spice Girls!
For those who won raffle prizes, congratulations and we hope you enjoy your goodies. And for those who didn’t win any prizes, don’t fret! You’ve still contributed to the important and necessary work we do at Human Ventures.
We’d like to say a special thank you to all the businesses and people who donated the raffle prizes on the night, particularly The Loft Beauty & Spa, Chop Haircutters, The Fox Hotel, Aquila Bar and Restaurant, Alabaster & Turner Travel Agents and of course Human Ventures and Human Creative. Thank you so for your generous donations to our raffle!
The birthday celebrations are still going strong here at Human: we’ve created the possibility of raising $10,000 through our chuffed.org campaign! Chuffed is a crowdfunding platform for communities and individuals seeking to raise funds for their not-for-profit or social enterprise campaigns. We’re hoping that, with your help, we can reach our goal in order to continue delivering our creative-based programs around Australia. Thanks for your help!
