The Raspotnik family raised more than $61,000 for Guide Dogs by participating in the 2017 and 2018 Bridge to Brisbane events, in honour of their own family member Christine Raspotnik, who sadly passed away in 2014.

A cause close to their heart because of Christine’s vision loss and the support received by Guide Dogs, Team Spaceframe is now one of Guide Dogs’ biggest supporters – with the aim of raising $70,000 for this year’s Bridge to Brisbane.

Joint managing director Jane Raspotnik said the team was always inspired by her mum’s memory, but the recent Guide Dogs miracle had only motivated the team to do more this year.

Guide Dogs Queensland Chief Executive Officer Michael Kightley thanked Spaceframe Buildings for purchasing a humidicrib with the money they raised last year, which was instrumental in the survival of the ‘Miracle Litter’.

“We could not have achieved some of the incredible things we have in the past without the generous support of Spaceframe Buildings and everyone who chooses Guide Dogs for their community fundraising,” he said.
