ACMF is the official national charity for Allphones Arena
This week we will announce that ACMF has become the first official National Charity to be supported by Allphones Arena at Sydney Olympic Park. Allphones Arena is one of the Top 10 arena’s in the world and the largest in Australia. The arena hosts between 85-100 performances and sees approximately 1 million visitors through it doors each year. This association is significant as it will increase the awareness for the work of ACMF, create opportunities for ACMF students to perform and has the potential for creating events that will benefit ACMF in so many ways.
The choice of which charity was going to benefit from Allphones Arena was determined by ballot of the staff. Each staff member was given the opportunity to put their case forward and ACMF was chosen with a resounding majority.
Allphones Arena puts 80% of its fundraising to a national charity and 20% to a local charity from around the Sydney Olympic Park precinct.
“We are thrilled to be selected as the National Charity partner for Allphones Arena. This gives our Foundation the opportunity to raise awareness and much-needed funds to provide music for disadvantaged Australian children”.
Don Spencer OAM, ACMF Founder
“This is actually a perfect fit. The ACMF music programs bring joy and inspiration to the lives of disadvantaged children all around Australia. Music is a key component of their program and it is a key component of ours, so there are natural synergies immediately”.
Paul Sergeant, Allphones Arena General Manager
The working together of ACMF and Allphones Arena is effective from today.
