ROYAL WOMEN’S DONOR AWARDS NIGHT

The Diploma of Event Management students group called Progressive Events, consisting of Millie Spencer, Callin Roach, Sophie Ladner, Taylor Gibson, Anna Trang held The Royal Women’s Foundation Annual Donor Awards Night. Located at The Royal Women’s Hospital, the event celebrated the wonderful staff and supporters of the Royal Women’s Hospital.
The special event allowed key foundation supporters, along with their families and friends to meet the recipients of the annual scholarships, awards and grants.
The awards support the staff members of the Royal Women’s Hospital, to further their studies and knowledge in the industry. It also highlighted the outstanding contribution  they make to the women and newborns, The Women’s and the local community.

Progressive Events coordinated the event with finger food, beverages and styling. Yet the main event for the night was the awards presentation, in which the award winners were congratulated and presented with their award certificates. Zareen Syed (the client) and The Women’s Foundation CEO Sarah Bernard were the faces of the event for the night, helping Progressive Events carry out the event seamlessly.

The awards handed out on the night were the following-
The Soroptimist Travel Grant, The Diane Foster Bursary, The Oscar and Luca Scholarship in NeoNatal Nursing, The Pat Baer Scholarship for Social Work and The Betty Amsden  Women’s Leadership Award.

Bills Walk for Brain Cancer 2019

On Sunday the 10th of November the Diploma of Event Management students ran the annual fundraiser for the Bill Tingate Brain Cancer Foundation; “Bill’s Walk for Brain Cancer 2019.”

The Elevated Events team consisted of Marina (Administrator), Tayla (Marketing and Styling), Leanne (Food and Beverage), Laetitia (Protocols and Registrations) and Billie (Sponsorship).  The team approached the day with the goal to increase the amount of event participants and funds raised, compared to last year. They worked hard to gain sponsorship for as many services and products as possible to keep costs at a minimum, resulting in higher funds raised to go towards the Foundation.

On the day, there were 142 attendees which was fantastic, as numbers were significantly up  from previous years, creating a feel good and relaxed atmosphere, as everyone was excited for a day full of positive energy and entertainment. Propa Coffee supported the day by serving amazing coffee to all attendees and the public alike. There was a face painter, who kept all children entertained and the lawn games, sponsored by One Big Day Event Hire kept the activities rolling on after the walk was completed. Elevated Events cooked up and served up a BBQ lunch.  This consisted of meat and vegetable sausages kindly donated by Woolworths and salads, muesli bars and fruit for all to enjoy.

The silent auction and raffle was a huge success with all 14 sponsored prizes being auctioned off. The end result was overwhelming, as the team far exceeded the financial goal anticipated by the Tingate family as a total of $6,000.00 was raised, exceeding the figure by approximately $1,000. This effort was a testament to the teams commitment and dedication to the cause and the funds will now be donated to the Alfred Hospital Neurological Department to fund new equipment.

Overall the team felt a sense of accomplishment from working on such a great cause. Congratulations to the Tingate Family!Picture 1Picture 2Picture 3Picture 5picture 6Picture 7 pngPicture 8
