Christmas Luncheon 2011

A major event on the CIKA calendar is the annual Macedon Ranges Focus Group’s Christmas party. Focus has been a major sponsor of CIKA for over thirteen years and, whilst their monthly activities are varied, their main endeavours are directed to supporting the funding that CIKA contributes to the RCH.

Members of the CIKA team have been attending the Focus Christmas lunch over many years and it is always a good time to catch up with old friends, enjoy the visit from Santa, sing some carols and enjoy a lovely meal in good company.

Whilst the Focus group was formed primarily to encourage friendship, education and socialization between the women of the Macedon Ranges their endeavours over many years have resulted in generous financial support for CIKA.

Group Vice President, Gwen Kakafikas, repeated her generous donations of 2009 and 2010 by once again presenting a cheque for $1000.00.

Gwen and her husband Andy are the owners of TBS (Aust), importers and wholesalers of curtain and blind hardware. When Gwen held the position of Focus President she attended several CIKA functions, and hence is very aware of the work that we do.
