GLITZ IN THE MIX
Cocktail night raising money and awareness
OVARIAN cancer is not often spoken about, but members of the Dalby community are working to change that through Cocktails for a Cure.
On Saturday evening, more than 350 people flocked to Jimbour House for the second annual event, enjoying cocktails, canapes, a multi-draw raffle, auction, live music and entertainment from the master of ceremonies, Channel 7 presenter Chris Parsons.
Dr John Hooper, Associate Professor from Mater Research, was special guest speaker for a Q&A segment.
Event organiser Edwina McVeigh said she was overwhelmed by the support.
“The event has been extremely successful once again, everyone was so excited to be there and really got behind the cause,” she said.
“Dr Hooper’s update on where the research team is at regarding a screening test was fantastic as guests know where their donations are being spent and what it means to this research.
“We are very thankful to have Dr Hooper and a team from Mater Foundation attend our event and assist with the raffles and live auction.
“This fundraiser would not have been possible without the support of the Russell family and staff at Jimbour House, along with countless donations from businesses and individuals who helped make this evening such a success.”
