Get In Quick To Secure Your Tickets to the Mayoral Charity Gala
The 2012 Mayoral Charity Gala will be held on Saturday 18 August at the Lardner Park Conference Centre.
The Gala will be a fun night featuring live music, an auction and a delicious meal.
The Mayor of Baw Baw Shire Councillor Diane Blackwood has chosen the West Gippsland Hospital to specifically boost hours for the Breast Cancer Care Nurse as her beneficiary.
“The nurse is currently only funded for 24 hours per fortnight and the number of women requiring this service is increasing,” said the Mayor.
“The hospital has been trying to get more funding assistance and has put their case forward to the State Government and the McGrath Foundation, but until these are forthcoming the hospital still only has a minimal service.
“With such alarming national statistics, which estimate around 14,610 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012; this shows just how important getting extra hours for the Breast Cancer Care Nurse is.
“More commonly money is often raised to go to a bigger pool of funds through the McGrath Foundation, however the money raised from the Mayoral Charity Gala will directly benefit the service we receive at the West Gippsland Hospital as a community.
“I hope that we are able to make this event as successful as last year, in which we raised over $33,000 for Habitat for Humanity.”
