Good result from Alma Doepel luncheon

More than $40,000 was raised for the Alma Doepel restoration at the second annual Voyage of a Lifetime gala luncheon last month.

According to spokesperson Sally Shepherdson, proceeds from the lunch were still being tallied and donations continued to arrive.

However, the total has already reached more than $40,000, topping last year’s fundraising effort at the inaugural luncheon.

“We were thrilled to have such a supportive group in attendance, helping to carry this project to completion for the youth of Victoria,” Ms Shepherdson said.

“The event was well supported by local businesses, with Baden Lucas of Lucas Real Estate conducting the auction and prizes donated from Victoria Harbour Pharmacy, Melbourne Star and Goodlife.”

“We’d like to extend our thanks to all those who supported the event,” Ms Shepherdson said.

Some 140 people attended the Voyage of a Lifetime luncheon at Atlantic Group venue Maia on Central Pier on August 24.

The luncheon was hosted by Channel 9’s Peter Hitchener and guests also heard from Sail & Adventure chairman Alan Edenborough and former Australian of the Year Simon McKeon.

The funds raised from the luncheon will be put towards the continued restoration of the historic tall-ship, which turns 113 later this year.

Owner Sail & Adventure plans to return the ship to service as a youth sail training vessel once she is back in the water.
