On Sunday afternoon October 2, the Doxa Youth Foundation hosted a golden jubilee party at its Malmsbury Camp. DYF was celebrating 50 years of improving the lives of children and young people in challenging circumstances.
Over 300 adults and children attended. There was a large contingent of those involved with Doxa over the years as well as local residents who came along to join in the fun and frivolity.
There was delicious food all day long and lots to and see and do, pony rides, face painting, archery, climbing walls, trampolines and a roving magician. A special treat was the arrival of the Lexus Melbourne Cup trophy and a session chaired by TV personality, Shawn Cosgrove where he introduced and asked questions of racing celebrities.
Julie Harrison, CEO said “there is a long-term link between the Doxa Youth Foundation and the racing industry as it raised the funds to establish the organisation way back in 1972.”
