ARN’s Executive Team turned sous chefs for the night as they joined more than 200 of Australia’s industry leaders and corporate teams who created and served a gourmet dinner made with love, hope and generosity as part of Oz Harvest’s annual CEO Cookoff Event.
HT&E CEO and Managing Director Ciaran Davis, ARN Chief Operating Officer and CFO Michael Harvey, National People and Culture Director Marissa Daras, Chief Operating Officer – iHeartRadio Australia & Asia Geraint Davies and Chief Marketing Officer Anthony Xydis joined forces for the annual event to assist the guru of Indian cuisine Kumar Mahadevan to make delicious meals that were served to more than 1,400 special guests from charity agencies.
The event was hosted by Larry Emdur with support by The Edge 96.ONE’s Mike E & Emma and KIIS National Network 3PM Pick Up’s Yumi Stynes.
ARN raised over $21,500 and helped Oz Harvest to get closer to their target fundraising goal of $3 million.
ARN’s involvement in Monday night’s event is part of an ongoing series of events organised by their Corporate Social Responsibility program, The Goodness Project, which sees employees from across the company team up to use their expertise and creativity to help charities make a difference in the community.
The Exec team also fired up their cooking skills ahead of Monday’s event and got behind the grill to serve up ARN’s Sydney office with a barbecue breakfast as part of a fund raiser for Oz Harvest.
Guest speakers from Oz Harvest were also hosted at each of the company’s offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to share their message of sustainability and how to reduce food waste.
