Samaritans Crisis Line Wins Best Not for Profit Award


We at Dine for Life chose Samaritans Crisis Line as the official charity of the Summer Dinner because of the inspiring work it’s doing offering emotional support to the lonely, despairing and suicidal in Perth.

Clearly, we are not alone in recognising the merit of this organisation. Last night at the Subiaco Business Association’s inaugural 2010 Subiz Awards, Samaritans Crisis Line won the Subiaco Business Association Best Not for Profit Award.

Samaritans Crisis Line accepted the award at the University Club in front of 200 of its peers involved in Subiaco’s business, not for profit and volunteer communities. The charity was also proud to have had three of its volunteers – Terry Walker, Dorothea Gillen and Mandy Patterson – nominated for the Volunteer of the Year Award.

Subiaco Business Association described the success of the night, saying, “The atmosphere and camaraderie in the room was relaxed, warm and very positive with cheers and applause as the finalists in each Category were announced.”

We are extremely proud of Samaritans Crisis Line for its recognition as being Subiaco’s best Not for Profit, and excited to see how the proceeds from the Summer Dinner will assist the charity in its invaluable work in the community.
