Celebration of Hope fundraiser for Brain Cancer

Friday 18 October 2013

Tonight I have the privilege of being the MC for Blackwood 8's Celebration of Hope Gala Ball at the Manningham Function Centre in Doncaster. Blackwood 8 raise funds to find a cure of Brain Cancer and are strong supporters of Dr. Charlie Teoh's Cure for Life foundation. With a crowd of around 300 it's going to be another great night, and on the entertainment list

is Louie & the Party Boys who are a Robbie Williams cover band, the wonderful Brain Nankervis who'll provide some great comedy stylings and we also get to hear from Associate Professor Terry Johns who'll update us with the progress the research teams are having in curing what still stands as the cancer with the highest mortality rate in the world.

As with all fund raising balls, there's auction items a plenty and tonight we'll even be auctioning off a person on each table. It'll be interesting to see who gets the highest bids! Here's some links for more details on Blackwood 8 and on Cure for Life
