Sometimes I feel like a broken record on here, harping on about how our weeks are long and hard and sweet moments like this are few. But they exist and for that I am grateful, everyday.
I was asked a little while ago to help spread the word about a charity gala dinner to raise money for the CCIA's neuroblastoma research. I'm sorry I've not done it sooner, but if I'm honest I find this a hard topic to write about, and my head has not been clear enough lately to find the words.
Sienna’s Frangipani Annual Gala Dinner is held on the 17th Feb in Pyrmont, in honor of Sienna Hoffmann – who coincidentally lived only a suburb away from me and died at the age of two. Her mother Lucy has organised this event to help raise awareness of neuroblastoma and raise money for research into this aggressive childhood cancer. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child and I commend her mother's strength for being able to do something positive in such a tragic situation.
The event is on the 17th Feb and tickets are $130. There are many prizes available from local businesses and a bevvy of entertainers. To find out more or purchase a ticket please visit here.
You can also donate directly to the CCIA, here.
