Good Friday Appeal raises $17.1m
Victorians dig deep for the key after a very difficult year.
The 90th Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal raised $17,122,879 yesterday -a remarkable amount given the punishing 12 months experienced by Victoria.
Understandable, it was down in last year’s $18,200,000.
Seven presenters include Peter Mitchell, Jane Bunn, Natalie Barr, Larry Emdur, Hamish McLachlan, Mike Amor, Sam Mac and Jacqui Felgate were amongst the presenters of the annual telethon (and the cash cow) with performances from Kate Ceberano, Guy Sebastian, Human Nature, Rob Mills, Lucy Durack and Isaiah Firebrace.
Produced by activeTV, from NEP studios and MCEC, Seven has broadcast the iconic event since 1957.
