Western is the theme for a night of entertainment and fun in support of the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre during the Mayor’s Charity Gala Dinner at Ottimo House on Saturday 4 March 2023.
Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are now available to support the event and help raise funds to purchase a new scalp-cooling machine and chemotherapy chair for the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre.
This year’s event includes dinner, drinks and entertainment and coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Centre in Campbelltown.
“The doctors and nurses at the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre have provided a vital service to thousands of people across the region over the past 20 years,” Mayor George Greiss said.
“That’s why I’m delighted to announce the therapy centre as the recipients for my charity gala dinner and I call on our generous local business community to once again step up and help raise funds for this important equipment,” Cr Greiss said.
“It promises to be a great evening of food, drinks and entertainment as well as an opportunity to celebrate the tireless work of medical professionals in our region,” he said.
Over the past year, the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre saw 5077 patients, a 5.4% increase from the previous year, while more than 49,000 treatments were administered to people.
Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre Director Dr Annette Tognela thanked Cr Greiss and Campbelltown Council for their support.
“We are thrilled the mayor’s charity dinner is supporting our centre this year and we are looking forward to a fantastic event,’’ Dr Tognela said.
Tickets are $150 per person or $1400 for a table of 10 people.
