News Supporting a Great Cause: Women in Healthcare
21 November 2017
On Thursday 5 October 2017, Bizwear attended the Women in Healthcare luncheon, in support of our long-standing clients, Epworth Healthcare. Hosted by Rod Fitzroy, President of the Epworth Healthcare Board of Management, the event saw 400 guests come together to raise funds towards new, state of the art surgical robotic equipment.
We regularly attend and sponsor these corporate fundraising events given the wonderful opportunity for us to support a great cause. This particular event, MC’d by Epworth’s specialist breast cancer surgeon Dr. Chantel Thornton, was both informative and confronting. Three key speakers presented, addressing treatment options and ongoing support for gynaecological cancers, and cardiac disease in women.
The event saw a record level of funds raised, where $103,000 was donated by various corporate sponsors. This great sum will contribute towards the purchase of a portable echocardiography machine for the new intensive care unit at Epworth Richmond.
