Christmas Luncheon 2017
One of the most important dates in the CIKA calendar each year is the Focus Christmas luncheon. The Macedon Ranges Focus Group is CIKA’s longest serving supporter group. Starting as a social group it evolved to become one of CIKA’s most generous and successful supporters. We have been the fortunate recipient of its members’ fundraising efforts for many years.
This year’s, President Robyn welcomed fifteen CIKA guests and, along with sixty Focus members, we joined together to sing, chat and enjoy a lovely Christmas meal. We extend a special thank you to all the Focus members for their continuing hard work which resulted in a cheque for $8000. We are also most grateful to Ruth and her Focus helpers who have worked so hard this year at the Trentham monthly Sunday market; their cheque for $8,500 was a great surprise. CIKA was also presented with a private donation of $2,000 from one of the Focus members for whose support over many years we are most grateful.
A lovely group of women, whose valuable contribution to CIKA enables us to continue with the high level of support for the research into childhood cancer undertaken at the RCH.
