BRIGHTER Days’ $150,000 donation to the CFA’s Ovens Valley Group has been described as “winning the lottery” by group officer Micheal Freudenstein.

DEBRA Australia, Cooper Trewin Memorial Research Fund, EB Research Australia and the Ovens Valley CFA Group were all written a cheque for $150,000 each after this year’s festival.
