Boutique advice firm Stanford Brown has held an event marking its 30th year of trading, raising more than $130,000 for paediatric health initiatives.
The event was held at the Hyatt Regency Grand Ballroom on Saturday 21 October and acted as a fundraiser for the Children's Medical Research Institute to support the research of the Genome Integrity Unit, the firm said.
In a statement to ifa, Standford Brown founder and chairman David Brown said the event was "a proud moment for all involved" in the business.
"After months of planning, it was a treat of a lifetime to share the evening with those that most contributed to the business we are today. This included our clients, our staff and their families, industry leaders, professional partners, insurers and fund managers," he said.
Stanford Brown launched under the name David Brown and Associates on 20 October 1987, a day more commonly known as Black Tuesday due to the 25 per cent crash suffered by the Australian stock market that day, with Mr Brown noting the company got off to a "slow start" before growing to house 40 staff in its offices today.
"It’s been a wonderful journey to date and whilst a delight to celebrate the achievement, we remain as excited as ever about our future,” he said.
