The Trustees, Directors, Life Members and extended family of The Aurora Group sadly advise the passing of Tony “Mary” Cooper on 27 April 2013.
Tony was a Trustee of the Aurora Group and one of our nine founding directors. He was joint Events Director with David Wilkins for the organisation’s crucial first five years and was a tireless volunteer in Sydney’s gay and lesbian community for over 30 years.
Aurora’s mission is to support our community through events of celebration and to meet our objectives in a spirit of joy, celebration and fun. No-one did this more passionately or lovingly than Tony Cooper. Aurora will continue to fundraise and produce fabulous celebrations to support and enrich our community, true to Tony’s spirit of giving and great fun.
Tony was Aurora family and we will miss him very dearly.
