Charity Fundraiser for St Elias Catholic Melkite Church Guildford

Charity Fundraiser for St Elias Catholic Melkite Church, Guildford


On Thursday 14 September, Madison Marcus were delighted to host a cocktail night at the firm’s Sydney office in support of the Catholic Melkite community.


Madison Marcus went from legal office to cocktail bar and were joined by members of the Catholic community for a very special evening.

The Catholic Melkite community are raising funds to build a new church in Guildford. To help raise money, church member Rob Azar is taking on an extraordinary challenge by walking over 300kms from Sydney to Canberra this October. Rob’s goal is to raise $300,000.00

The cocktail night was MC-ed by John Alten and included a celebrity appearance from Rob Shehadie (Pizza, Housos and Here Come the Habib’s). Guests also heard from His Grace, the Bishop, Robert Rabbat as well as Robert Azar who shared his touching story about his faith and why building this church is so important to him.

A charity auction was held where a number of unique experiences, art and designer products were auctioned off. The auction together with generous donations by those who attended meant the event raised over $60,000 for the Church.

Madison Marcus would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the event. The firm wishes Rob Azar all the best on his ‘Walk of Faith’ in October. We look forward to hearing of the church’s progress. To donate or learn more about Rob’s story and the Church’s building plans visit:
