Alma Doepel fundraising update

01 Apr 2015

A large injection of funding is needed to ensure the future of Docklands’ historical top-sail schooner, the Alma Doepel.

The Alma Doepel restoration team continues to campaign for more donations from Docklands corporate community, with the hope of acquiring more sponsors.

At the same time, the Docklands Chamber of Commerce is also working hard to raise awareness of the cause and support the work of the Alma team.

Around $1.7 million is needed to complete the restoration project, which would see the wooden ship become an iconic part of Docklands.

Later this month an art exhibition celebrating the historic ship will be held at Shed 2. The exhibition opens 6pm on Friday, April 17 and will be open 10am to 5pm on April 18, 19, 25 and 26. A percentage of sales will go toward the Alma Doepel Restoration project.

Docklands Chamber of Commerce vice-president Bill Reid said the chamber was also planning a gala lunch and auction to raise money for the Alma Dopel restoration fund.

“Plans include a keynote address from a high-profile speaker and a distinguished VIP guest list,” Mr Reid said.

Currently the fundraiser is planned for Friday, August 28 and enquiries be can be made by contacting Mr Reid on (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The total fundraising tally for March is $812.50:
International Fellowship of Yachting Rotarians Victorian Fleet: $500
Donations to National Trust Alma Doepel appeal fund: $312.50
