Nelune Fundraiser

Saturday Night, the 16th of June, IMSMC supported a fundraiser, for the Nelune foundation held at the Harbourview Restaurant at The Northbridge Golf Club.
125 guests, contributed to a fantastic night. The finest cuisine, great company, dancing and support, was shared among those in attendance.

Our night was opened, with a brief welcome, by our president and introduced our MC's for the evening; Elka & Thomas Whalan, Both Olympians who have represented Australia in water polo and swimming. Both are TV personalities, appearing regularly on Channel 7's Sunrise. They are HUGE supporters of The Nelune Foundation. They expressed their joy and greatly appreciate the support offered by IMSMC.
Nelune & Anna, co founders of the foundation were extremely overwhelmed by the support of our club.
Raffles, silent auctions , signed bottles of wine (1 signed by The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull!) were used to raise funds for a very worthy cause. Fighting cancer with dignity.
A Huge Thankyou to all the members, family & friends of IMSMC that attended. Thankyou to the members that donated items toward the fundraiser.

I am delighted to let you know that the Italian Festa raised $10,000 on Saturday night. What a wonderful outcome and thank you both for your enormous contribution and a huge, huge thanks to Doreen, Nina and the Italian Social Motoring Club and their members for making it the success it was.

The outreach services at the Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre are in need of a car for home visits for patients receiving chemotherapy at home. With the $10k and hopefully with other end of year donations coming through they will be able to purchase a car.  Will keep you posted.

A great night - a worthy cause - proudly supported by our fine club.
