Macedon Ranges 2017 Luncheons and Stall

CIKA is committed to providing funding for research into solid tumours

Macedon Ranges 2017 Luncheons and Stall - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

8 December 2017

One of the most important dates in the CIKA calendar each year is the Focus Christmas luncheon. The Macedon Ranges Focus Group is CIKA's longest serving supporter group. Starting as a social group it evolved to become one of CIKA's most generous and successful supporters. We have been the fortunate recipient of its members' fundraising efforts for many years.

This year's, President Robyn welcomed fifteen CIKA guests and, along with sixty Focus members, we joined together to sing, chat and enjoy a lovely Christmas meal. We extend a special thank you to all the Focus members for their continuing hard work which resulted in a cheque for $8000. We are also most grateful to Ruth and her Focus helpers who have worked so hard this year at the Trentham monthly Sunday market; their cheque for $8,500 was a great surprise. CIKA was also presented with a private donation of $2,000 from one of the Focus members for whose support over many years we are most grateful.

A lovely group of women, whose valuable contribution to CIKA enables us to continue with the high level of support for the research into childhood cancer undertaken at the RCH.

The annual winter luncheon which took place on Wednesday 19 July lived up to the success of preceding events. It was very well attended with over fifty guests arriving by car and bus from Sunbury and the surrounding area. Morning tea was served on arrival at 10.30 and was followed raffle sales and a time for old friends to catch up and chat. The buffet luncheon was well up to the standard that guests have come to expect and was followed by the raffle draws. The event concluded at 2 p.m., and was much enjoyed by all. Thank you to all those Focus members involved in the oraganization this fundraiser.
