2018 Good Friday Appeal

2018 Good Friday Appeal
Mediatec Asia Pacific
Melbourne, Australia


The Good Friday Appeal is an annual fundraising activity on behalf of the Royal Children's Hospital, in Melbourne, Australia. The event occurs on Good Friday every year.

 This year, the appeal raised $18 million, which was a record high figure. It has provided more than $345 million to the hospital since the appeal began in 1931.

 Individuals and businesses, clubs, schools and country towns throughout the state conduct activities to raise money for the Hospital.

 The Appeal is a non-political, non-denominational organisation that exists solely to financially support The Royal Children’s Hospital.

 For the first time in 2014, the telethon was staged within the 2,500 seat Plenary theatre at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). The public were able to purchase tickets to join the live studio audience, with proceeds donated to the Appeal.

The state-of-the-art MCEC complex, which is entirely undercover, also features a vast foyer area and support rooms which allowed the Appeal to expand activities such as the popular Kids Day Out program and host community groups which fundraise for the hospital.

Mediatec Asia Pacific were again proud to donate our LED screens and provide technical support to the Seven Network for the live studio concert in the Plenary at the MCEC.
