A- lis­ters power up char­ity for sick kids

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

WITH a new A-list com­mit­tee and celebrity en­ter­tain­ment locked in, the 10th an­niver­sary of SunSCHine char­ity event is promis­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore.

The new com­mit­tee, which in­cludes for­mer TV pre­sen­ter Nicky Love Joye, busi­ness woman El­lie Aitken and de­signer Marnie Skillings, are pre­par­ing to raise big bucks for the Syd­ney Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tals Net­work when they hold their an­nual event on Fri­day.

The char­ity, which has al­ready raised more than $4 mil­lion since be­ing founded a decade ago, is se­ri­ous about mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the lives of sick chil­dren and has en­listed celebrity am­bas­sadors in­clud­ing Terry Bi­viano, Mary Cous­tas (right) and Dar­ren Palmer to raise aware­ness.

The foun­da­tion was founded by Nikki Dun­lop, who last year abruptly left Aus­tralia with her two teenage chil­dren and re­lo­cated to Malaysia. She is no longer part of the com­mit­tee, but will al­ways be known as a founder.
