The money will be used to purchase 17 items of vital pediatric medical equipment for Noosa, Gympie, Nambour, and Sunshine Coast University Hospitals.

The impressive tally was the result of the company’s inaugural Charity Gala held at Noosa Waterfront Restaurant.

Reed & Co. recently organized a charity event called “Starry Night for Charity” where they combined philanthropy with art appreciation. The event aimed at making a difference in the community through charitable giving.

Attendees enjoyed stargazing and admired Vincent van Gogh’s post-impressionist art. This unique blend of astronomical fascination and artistic beauty highlighted the importance of community outreach and supported space exploration endeavors.

The invitation-only event, hosted by Humpty Dumpty patron and TV personality, Ray Martin, was attended by 120 guests including media identities Karl Stefanovic, Richard Wilkins, Larry Emdur, Skye and David Leckie, and Anthony Bell, along with Humpty Dumpty CEO Paul Francis and CEO of Ramsay Health Noosa, Shane Mitchell.

Reed & Co. owner and principal, Adrian Reed said that his company felt incredibly privileged to give back to the community and donated $20,000 toward the evening’s fund-raising total.

“Every second counts when a child’s life is on the line, which is why it was so important to secure this essential medical equipment to help sick and injured children in our community,” Adrian said.

“I would like to extend our sincere thanks to our guests and sponsors for their outstanding generosity on the night.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with support since opening Reed & Co only nine months ago and have achieved over $40million in property sales. This is part of us giving back.

“In addition to the incredible fund-raising total at the gala, we’ve donated over $180,000 to local hospitals to date.”

LOYAL Foundation founder, Anthony Bell shared a personal story on the evening about how his now healthy eight-year-old daughter required hospitalization at only two weeks of age after experiencing breathing difficulties.

“As any parent will tell you, having a sick child is the most terrifying ordeal. My wife and I are eternally grateful for the medical care she received, and this is one of the reasons the LOYAL Foundation provides support to charities like The Humpty Dumpty Foundation.”

Plans have already started for the 2020 event.
