Macedon Ranges 2010 Christmas Luncheon

CIKA is committed to providing funding for research into solid tumours


Macedon Ranges 2010 Christmas Luncheon - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

The Macedon Ranges Focus Group has been unstinting in its support of CIKA's efforts to raise funds for the Royal Children's Hospital.


CIKA President, Sandra Lehrer, attended their 2010 Christmas luncheon along with several other representatives of CIKA and the hospital. They were overwhelmed with the donations from the group and it was a great finish to the year.
Focus donated $5000.00.
Gwen Kakafikas made a personal donation of $1000.00.
The bike riders raised $3259.50.


Here are some photographs of the event.












A major event on the CIKA calendar is the annual Macedon Ranges Focus Group’s Christmas party. Focus has been a major sponsor of CIKA for over 12 years and, whilst their monthly activities are varied, their main endeavours are directed to supporting the funding that CIKA contributes to the RCH.

Members of the CIKA team have been attending the Focus Christmas lunch over many years and it is always a good time to catch up with old friends, enjoy the visit from Santa, sing some carols and enjoy a lovely meal in good company.

Whilst the Focus group was formed primarily to encourage friendship, education and socialization between the women of the Macedon Ranges their endeavours over many years have resulted in generous financial support to CIKA.


Andy and Gwen Kakafikas

Group Vice President, Gwen Kakafikas, repeated her generous donation of 2009 by once again presenting a cheque for $1000.00.

Gwen and her husband Andy are the owners of TBS ( Aust ), importers and wholesalers of curtain and blind hardware, and when Gwen held the position of Focus President she attended several CIKA functions, and hence is very aware of the work that we do.
