$40,000 raised for the Little Penguins of Manly

Blog Post - Woo Hoo $40,000 raised for the Little Penguins of Manly

Together we raised $40,000 to support, protect and care for the Little Penguins of Manly.  The FNPW Charity Lunch held at Hugos at Manly was a fabulous success - including the inspirational speakers involved in the Little Penguin Project our special guest Guy Leech, such a wonderful fine dining experience and of course the generosity of our guests.


FNPW would like to thank Hugos at Manly - especially Dave Evans, Daniel Vaughn and David Corsi and of course the wonderful Team at Hugos.

Thanks, must go out to Mark Lines our MC and Auctioneer for the day and of course McGrath Real Estate – they truly are great neighbours! The McGrath Manly office overlooks the penguin nesting site – and they love little penguins and helped us out tremendously.

Don’t forget the wonderful McGrath Deal if your planning on selling your property – Susie O’Brien has secured a special offer to you and extended to your family & friends - the McGrath Deal includes the following:

  • Discounted commission rate of 1.5% plus GST. (Vendor must quote the Discount Code of “Lucky Bella” to secure the deal).
  • $1000 donated by McGrath to FPNW for the Little Penguins of Manly Project for every property sold.
  • Mark Lines, the awesome McGrath Auctioneer, will also donate his share of the fee being $450 to FNPW.
  • So, for every property sold through Susie O’Brien at McGrath and auctioned by Mark, the vendor will save 0.5% commission and $1450 will be donated to FNPW to support the Little Penguins of Manly.

    This is an amazing offer and you can share this great deal with your friends!!! Just mention the codeword "Lucky Bella" when you contact Susie O’Brien and her team.

    We would also like to thank the generous sponsors and supporters that made the event such a great day raising funds to help protect and care for the Little Penguins of Manly!
