Right Royal `African` Affair - Charity Gala Dinner
by Guest Author
YOURE INVITED TO THE WILDEST EVENT OF THE YEAR!
Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital (RBWH) Foundation is excited to announce its upcoming major charity event, the 2012 Right Royal African Affair.
The event will be held at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Saturday June 2nd and promises to be a sell out!
This is a wonderful opportunity to re-live your favourite aspects of African culture while supporting Queenslands largest hospital.
Kicking off at 7pm, guests will be treated to a unique African experience complete with exotic food, drummers, dancers and all the sights and sounds of the worlds richest and most diverse continent.
RBWH Foundation CEO Peter Treseder said the annual Right Royal Affair is the Foundations premier fund-raising event, and each year takes on a new theme centred around a different Royal culture.
This year will be particularly wild as we embark on a safari through Africa.
Its always a fabulous and very different evening and raises vital funds for life-saving medical research conducted at RBWH, Mr Treseder said.
There couldnt be a better time to celebrate as the Hospital marks its 145th year of providing expert patient care to the people of Queensland.
RBWH is recognised as a leader in the fields of cancer care, premature and seriously ill babies, burns and trauma care, motor neurone disease, stroke, Parkinsons disease, kidney disease, mental health and infectious diseases - just to name a few.
Mr Treseder said that apart from attending the evening, there are a variety of other ways that individuals and organisations can be involved.
Businesses which sponsor a table or donate goods or services to be auctioned on the night will receive a range of benefits including brand exposure and the opportunity to position themselves alongside Queenslands oldest, busiest and largest hospital. Our auctions are the primary way we raise money at the event, and we are particularly hoping to have a range of items in keeping with our African theme, Mr Treseder said.
Last year, 740 guests attended the Right Royal British Affair and the Foundation raised $450,000 for medical research at the hospital.
Organisers are confident that this years event will be even more successful, with a target of raising $500,000 to meet the growing needs in healthcare.
