Performers will be confirmed within the coming weeks and Vision Australia is proud to announce that Anthony Callea and Rachael Leahcar are this year’s Carol by Candlelight Ambassadors.
Carols by Candlelight® favourite, Callea, is thrilled to return as an Ambassador for the event, as is Leahcar who resumes her role as an Ambassador for the second year in a row.
This year, Vision Australia is encouraging the public to give back by donating to its Children’s Services, which will benefit from the donations received through its ‘Light a Candle’ campaign.
Vision Australia's Light a Candle campaign is aiming to raise the much-needed $2m it needs every year to ensure children who are blind or have low vision have the services they need.
Vision Australia’s Children’s Services receives some funding to deliver services, but the need in the community means it is delivering far more than we are funded to do.
As part of the campaign, Vision Australia has commissioned a 3.5-metre high candle art installation, which will light-up to symbolise the fundraising initiative. Leading up to the event, this life-sized candle will be touring around Melbourne.
