ActionAid Australia is shouting out a huge thank you to our sponsors for Frocking Hilarious 2023!
Our comedy galas in Sydney and Brisbane were supported by some incredible local businesses who donated raffle prizes and helped us raise over $20,000.
We couldn’t be more appreciative of them – for backing Frocking Hilarious and helping us raise funds so that more women in countries like Vanuatu, Kenya and Indonesia can prepare for and respond to emergencies.
