Description

This series consists of various records relating to the fundraising work of the Archbishop’s Committee.

It includes invitations to fundraising events, such as the Debutante Ball in July 1945. This was held at the Hawthorn Town Hall and its proceeds went to the Catholic Welfare Organisation. The debutantes were presented to Mrs Arthur Calwell. This Ball was organised by Mrs Santospirito, Mrs Mary Rodriquez (Santospirito’s sister), Mrs L. Tizio, Miss R. Palamara and Mr Frank Conti.

The series includes a pamphlet published by the Archbishop’s Committee in September 1945 regarding its work to raise funds for victims of the war in Italy.

It also contains invitations received by Mrs Santospirito from other organisations such as Xavier College and the Genazzano Mothers’ Association.

There are flyers and circulars regarding Archbishop’s Committee activities, as well as miscellaneous items such as dance tickets.
