Embrace the movie raised $1130.00 for St Kilda Mums!
The screening of the movie Embrace for charity St Kilda Mums on 5/10/2016 was a huge success with 94 people buying tickets to the movie!
Before the movie Nyree's son Hamish switched on the cute factor and beguiled people into buying lots of St Kilda Mums tea towels and greeting cards (family friendly business model!).
The end result being The Fiddes Group raised $1130.00 for St Kilda Mums!
We got great feedback from the people who came along. St Kilda Mums CEO Jessica Macpherson said "it has to be the BEST documentary I've seen in ages".
Another movie goer commenting: "Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful night at the Rivoli last night viewing the amazing film, “Embrace”. My eldest daughter organised the tickets for 5 of us and we all walked away feeling very emotional and full of serious conversation. What an incredible story! Very thought provoking. I had heard [about] St Kilda Mums organisation on TV, but was great to hear from you girls about your achievements and future plans. Well done on making such a huge difference to people’s lives. Also loved my Christmas Cards! Thanks again, Clare"
Today Nyree Fiddes was pleased to visit St Kilda Mums CEO Jessica Macpherson to say thank you for attending the movie and confirm the donation of the fundraiser money with a certificate.
