On Saturday March 10th 2018, Buildcorp Foundation hosted their fifth fundraiser gala event, Party No. 5, in support of mental health and suicide prevention. Equilibrium Air-Conditioning were, once again, proud to be Platinum Sponsors of the evening.
It was an honour to be a part of the highly successful occasion which raised $500,000 for an extremely worthy cause. We are particularly proud of the remarkable efforts made by The Buildcorp Foundation to organise Party No.5 and the results achieved, year after year.
Since 2014, Buildcorp has raised a total of $1.5 million, and at Equilibrium, we are proud to have been a part of these efforts, raising money for Lifeline and awareness for suicide and mental health issues. Each $30 raised for Lifeline can provide one hour of support on their crisis support chat. This can be a matter of life and death for struggling Aussies.
In 2015, an average of eight Australians were lost to suicide each day, and suicide remains the leading cause of death for persons aged 15-44 in our country. These are some alarming statistics that illustrate the fact that something needs to be done to prevent the heartache and suffering that inevitably follows the loss of a loved one to suicide. Human life is too precious not to act now to prevent such tragedies.
Buildcorp Foundation Chair Josephine Sukkar AM said: “We are so very grateful for the generosity of our supporters who have helped us raise over $500,000 this past week. We have many people to thank, including sponsors whose support ensures every dollar raised at our events goes directly to the Foundation. We are also grateful for the hundreds of other contributors who donate prizes, funds, and their time and spend big on the night to help the Buildcorp Foundation collectively give more for mental health and suicide prevention.”
