Record breaking Women’s Health fundraiser!
The ninth annual Women in Healthcare Lunch was deemed an outstanding success with a record-breaking attendance and amount raised.
511 guests attended the lunch in the Plaza Ballroom on 6 October with specialist breast cancer surgeon, Dr Chantel Thornton acting as Master of Ceremonies.
Major sponsor, Conquest Services joined thirteen other table sponsors and friends to hear from three specialists in the field of fertility and maternity care.
Included in the expert panel were obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Samantha Hargreaves who spoke about her amazing charity work in Africa and Mongolia together with fertility specialist A/Prof Kate Stern and reproductive gynaecologist, Dr Lynn Burmeister who highlighted facts about fertility preservation.
Thanks to a fabulous line-up of live auctions and raffle prizes, a record $150,000 was raised to support maternity and paediatric services at Epworth.
