Christmas in July with Hope for Cure on Saturday July 21, offers a rare opportunity to experience the elegant ambience of one of Newcastle’s most exclusive venues with all the fun and frivolity of the festive season. This unique event recreates the magic of Christmas with lavish spreads of decadent delights, captivating live entertainment, a spirit of giving and the element of surprise.
Hosted tastings, auctions and raffles offer the chance to take home something truly special but just taking part is its own reward, because this Christmas is all about a different sort of gift giving! Generously supported by some of the Hunter’s finest producers and best local businesses, this is Hope4Cure’s major fundraiser which aims to raise over AUD25,000 in support of Hunter women and their families, impacted by ovarian and gynaecological cancers.
Founded by a local family who lost a loved one to ovarian cancer, Hope4Cure is funding medical equipment for Muswellbrook Hospital and providing patient care packs. HMRI indicates only one in ten women diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer will survive beyond five years while early diagnosis can increase the survival rate to 90 percent.
