The Annual Fundraising Dinner was held on Friday 29 June 2007 at the Shangri-La hotel, Sydney. The Dinner was the highlight of MD Awareness Week. Popular television newsman John Mangos was the Master of Ceremonies, and guest speaker Mr. Don Rowe, NSW State President, represented the National RSL and the partnership formed between the RSL and the Foundation. The Foundation’s Patron, Ita Buttrose, interviewed two volunteers, Sr. Margaret Gannon and Mrs Janet Waters in a casual interview format and spoke to them about the impact of MD on their lives.
The Annual Fundraising Dinner was a great success with an attendance of approximately 250 guests. We would like to extend a big thank you to all our generous supporters on the night, in particular to Jacobs Creek for their contribution of the wine. Funds were raised through a silent auction and a raffle on the night, as well as donations.
Thank you to all those who supported the event.
