Menzies and the Rioli Fund for Aboriginal health were thrilled to secure the services of Mr Kevin Sheedy as Offi cial Ambassador for the Fund and the on going commitment and enthusiasm of Mr Dean Rioli as founding Chair and driving force behind the initiative. The Fund established its own website during 2008, www.rioli.org.au, which will be further enhanced during 2009. As a result of many of the above initiatives, the Communications and Development team helped to raise a total of $626,360 for Menzies in cash and in kind donations. This exceeded the fundraising target of $213,000 by $413,360. The coming year will be another challenging one for the Communications and Development Unit with the global fi nancial crisis likely to impact on peoples ability to donate to and sponsor our research and other activities. There are several major events and initiatives planned for the year including an Ochre fundraising lunch, a new Ochre website, a new and exciting partnership with Territory Discoveries and NT Tourism and several Rioli Fund and Hawthorn FC activities.
