Last Thursday we were lucky enough to catch up with our Alumni Ambassador Chris Mercer who hosted a small group of CEF supporters at the Sydney Theatre Company.

The evening included pre-show drinks, a performance of the ‘Accidental Death Of An Anarchist’ and a private behind-the-scenes tour led by Chris.

Chris is the Head of Production at the STC and is a CEF Snowy Monaro grant recipient, and he shared that he sees this event as a great way to give back to CEF and say thanks for the help he received to the people who support and value CEF’s purpose. The event helped us raise funds to assist more students achieve their education dreams.

A huge thank you must go to Chris and the Sydney Theatre Company for generously hosting the event - you are helping us change lives! 👏👏👏

We hope this will be the first of several such events in the future. If you’d like to register your interest for our next fundraising event to help young rural and regional people pursue their higher education ambitions, please get in contact with our office on 02 6362 3162.
