What does the Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion of­fer the Dar­ling Downs re­gion?

The Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion re­mains the char­ity of choice in the Dar­ling Downs re­gion sup­port­ing our hospi­tals — Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal, Bail­lie Hen­der­son Hos­pi­tal and Mt Lofty Heights Nurs­ing Home.

We are a com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion at heart, stay­ing con­nected to our re­gion through a num­ber of events, large and small, that we host through­out the year.

Our fundrais­ing ef­forts al­low us to buy life-sav­ing equip­ment and re­sources which sig­nif­i­cantly im­pact the lives of our pa­tients and their fam­i­lies.

Of­ten this equip­ment means that lo­cal fam­i­lies do not need to travel, or travel as far, for treat­ment and in­stead can stay lo­cal with their loved ones.

What are the funds go­ing to­wards from the evening?

The funds raised at the Stepping Out Win­ter Glam­our Fash­ion Event will go to­wards sup­port­ing chil­dren’s health at the Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal.

We know that ev­ery dol­lar counts and can make a big dif­fer­ence in the lives of sick kids and their fam­i­lies who visit the hos­pi­tal.

What sort of other events does the Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion get in­volved with?

The Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion is in­volved with a num­ber of events through­out the year keep­ing us well con­nected with the com­mu­nity.

We run a num­ber of Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion events which in­clude our very pop­u­lar Women of Strength event, the Ladies Di­a­mond Lun­cheon, our Mel­bourne Cup Lun­cheon and com­mu­nity events in­clud­ing the Zom­bie Walk, Teddy Bears’ Pic­nic and our Heroes and Vil­lains Run/walk.

We are also very priv­i­leged to be buoyed by strong sup­port from lo­cal com­mu­nity groups and busi­nesses who host events in sup­port of the foun­da­tion.

We re­fer to these as our “work­ing with our mates” events.

These in­clude lunches, golf days and spe­cial fundrais­ing events which sup­port the foun­da­tion and make what we do pos­si­ble.

What are you most look­ing for­ward to on the night?

As a com­mu­nity-based or­gan­i­sa­tion one of the things we are very lucky to wit­ness on a daily ba­sis is see­ing the com­mu­nity band to­gether and get be­hind a great cause.

I can’t wait to see the Stepping Out Win­ter Glam­our Fash­ion event come to life as we as a com­mu­nity work to­gether to help our sick kids.

There re­ally is noth­ing like see­ing people get to­gether to make a dif­fer­ence.

Of course, I am also look­ing for­ward to see­ing all of the won­der­ful fash­ion on of­fer from the fash­ion houses that are get­ting in­volved in this event.

What do you love about liv­ing and work­ing in Toowoomba?

There is such a won­der­ful vibe around Toowoomba at present and with the amount of new cafes and restau­rants pop­ping up it seems ev­ery­one is re­joic­ing with the ac­tiv­ity in our re­gion.

I love the glo­ri­ous weather and the four sea­sons we get to ex­pe­ri­ence and the pride we take in keep­ing our city so clean and pic­turesque.

The op­por­tu­ni­ties for young people to stay and raise a fam­ily is so ev­i­dent in the or­gan­i­sa­tions we get to work with and our com­mu­nity of course is one of the most gen­er­ous I have ever had the plea­sure of be­ing a part of.

We have felt very wel­come in Toowoomba from the mo­ment we set foot in this won­der­ful piece of par­adise we call home.
