The Sparkling Lunch was a Real Diamond

We were incredibly excited to welcome people back to face to face events with our annual Sparkling Lunch on the 21st of May.

Hosted again at the stunning Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, our events committee put on a treat. The combination of delicious food, fascinating speakers and, of course, wonderful company! Our fantastic master of ceremonies, Peter “grubby” Stubbs, kept the event running smoothly and surprised us all by calling fellow Children First Foundation Ambassador Dee Dee Dunleavy during her radio show and putting us live on air!

We were all fascinated to hear from our guest speaker, Associate Professor Yi Yang. It was a real honour to understand more about Nichole’s recent surgery for severe scoliosis and how her amazing result was achieved. Also, who knew that giraffes can suffer from scoliosis?!

Our auction and raffle were hugely successful. We are grateful to everyone who donated items, ensuring that all funds raised go directly to support Children First Foundation. As always, our fantastic auctioneer John Shore OAM kept everyone on their toes, and the bids coming in so fast the staff couldn’t keep up!

For those of you who couldn’t join us, below are some pictures courtesy of our event photographers, HM Photos, who, as always, did an excellent job.
