The Cornucopia Committee Inc.
Raising funds for the prevention and treatment of child abuse since 1963
Our Mission Statement
The Cornucopia Committee Inc. is a registered charity and leader in the field of fundraising for the prevention of child abuse and consists of a dedicated group of volunteers working to raise money for child protection and associated issues. The funds are raised by organising interesting and exciting functions while relying on some generous donors and sponsors to support our team so we may donate to various groups combating the scourge of child abuse including:
To date we have raised several million dollars in our battle against child abuse. The abuse of children is a secret evil which makes fundraising more difficult.
We ask you to spread the word amongst family and friends about the valuable work the Cornucopia Committee is doing in raising funds for this most important child protection issue which is often neglected in general society.
We are delighted to announce that on Australia Day 2016, Dorothy Ryan, President of the Cornucopia Committee was recognised with the Order of Australia, for her significant contribution to the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
The Committee is immensely proud of this achievement and with your ongoing help and support we will steadfastly continue with this important work.
Cornucopia Committee Inc – 2015
The Cornucopia Committee wish to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your support in 2015.
Although it has been an extremely difficult year for raising funds we have managed to distribute $83,500 to the Royal Hospital for Women, Royal North Shore CPU, The Children’s Hospital Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick and CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Service), and we would like to thank you for assisting us in making this possible.
Almost daily we hear or read about horrific reports of child abuse in our communities. Whilst it sometimes seems almost overwhelming to the members of our Committee at the same time it renews our determination to try to fight for the elimination of this scourge from our society. Hopefully you will continue to partner us in this fight.
Dorothy Ryan OAM
President, The Cornucopia Committee Inc
TOGETHER WE CAN HELP PREVENT CHILD ABUSE.
