On behalf of the Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation I do want to thankyou for your considerable efforts at the dinner last, Friday night. As you certainly would realise the auction was an extraordinary success and this was largely due to your efforts

Phil, you must take a great deal of the credit for all the compliments we have received. The auction made more than reserve on every item and I have heard nothing but praise for you ‘expertise’. Everyone at the function has said that the Gala was the ‘best yet’ and are already looking forward to next year.

A great night in Hobart at the Grand Chancellor Hotel for the Heart Foundation Tasmania Annual Fund Raising Cocktail Party, in the presence of the Governor Professor Kate Warner and her husband Richard Warner.
Hosted by local celebrity John X the evening raised over $50,000.00. The auction included some terrific local art, outdoor adventures and luxury holidays.
We heard from Lauren Watson who has suffered from heart failure since a baby. Now a mum after an emergency caesarean to save both her and her baby as her heart failed again. She is living a full life and is about to embark on a huge trek in Tasmania too not only strengthen her heart but to raise further funds for the Heart Foundation.
The crowd responded well to Lauren\‘s story and supported the pledge that I ran after the auction. Thank you to the team and Edwards Windsor who made it possible for me to attend.
