FDC and industry friends including premium sponsors Stylecraft, and Greenbox Architecture, and major sponsors Kerfoot and RJ Workspace are proud to announce our 14th Melbourne Cup Day fundraising event. This year, we have chosen to support The Butterfly Foundation to raise awareness for and assist in their research into eating disorders and body image issues.

The Butterfly Foundation have worked for over 12 years to provide services and support for those suffering from an eating disorder and negative body image along with supporting their families, friends and carers. The Butterfly Foundation’s vision is to live in a world that celebrates health, wellbeing and diversity and is dedicated to bringing about change to the culture, policy and practice in the prevention, treatment and support of those affected.

Last year, FDC raised a staggering $302,107 which assisted Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and the Carlie Teo Foundation fund vital research and medical trials for brain cancer research.

FDC’s annual Melbourne Cup Lunch is an action-packed day including everything from our annual calcutta, charity auctions, betting facilities and of course, live coverage of the 2017 Emirates Melbourne Cup race.

It is an extraordinary day and your support, whether it be a monetary donation, sponsorship or ticket, is greatly appreciated. Every little bit can make a remarkable difference. If you would like to collaborate with us in any way to express support for The Butterfly Foundation, please contact Amanda Eather – details below.

We look forward to seeing you there!
