A feast of fundrais­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THIS year a Bur­swood busi­ness owner will sup­port a Breast Can­cer Care WA char­ity event for the 11th year in a row.

BBC En­ter­tain­ment di­rec­tor Beth Ormsby has again pro­vided the en­ter­tain­ment for the char­ity’s sig­na­ture fundrais­ing event Long Ta­ble Lunch.

“Ev­ery year I have nu­mer­ous acts ask­ing to play at the Long Ta­ble Lunch,” Ms Ormsby said.

“The Am­pli­fiers were a real hit last year and jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to re­turn in 2016.”

Ms Ormsby said the char­ity was in­spired by her friend­ship with founder Ros Wor­thing­ton.

“I’ve been friends with Ros for years and have sup­ported the event through­out our whole friend­ship,” she said.

“It’s amaz­ing how far the con­cept has come, while still hon­our­ing its orig­i­nal val­ues and cel­e­brat­ing the strength and re­silience of women af­fected by breast can­cer.”

The Long Ta­ble Lunch raises funds for emo­tional, prac­ti­cal and fi­nan­cial sup­port for peo­ple with breast can­cer.

The event is on April 3 and Breast Can­cer Care WA aims to raise $300,000.
