Our first event – Music for Blankets, raised 842 blankets!

The team at 300 Blankets would like to thank everyone who came and supported Music for Blankets on the 12th of May 2012.  The musicians who performed on the night were absolutely sensational! Atkinson Jones; Sophea Hay and Joanna Tran; Graham and Sinead Horne; Joel Velasco, Christian Velasco and Rupert Lugo; Yu Lin and Nathan Liow; Marlon Winterborne; and The Keiths! performed unforgettable sets in front of a full house!

Over 240 people came to support the first 300 Blankets event. Through ticket sales, the BBQ and raffles, we are excited to announce that our supporters have so far helped raise 842 blankets for the homeless community! From a dream of raising 300 blankets in early 2012, this is an absolutely incredible result! We at 300 Blankets would like to thank all the volunteers, performers and artists, Hanover and St Vincent de Paul Society, and sponsors involved in making the night a huge success.

A special thank you to Tony Keenan – CEO of Hanover, for making an inspiring speech about homelessness in Melbourne and the wonderful work done at Hanover.
