Banquet 2013 Results Thank you

To our Supporters


With the economic situation as it is at present we sincerely value your contribution to our major fund raising event “Banquet at the Beach”, held 2nd June 2013 

It is only through the generosity such as yours, by so many businesses, and people of the Illawarra and surrounding districts, that we can continue to support cancer patients, their families and cancer research here in the Illawarra. All our proceeds go towards the purchase of equipment, care and support to cancer patients and research. 

The Illawarra Cancer Carers Inc. and the Banquet at the Beach Committee wholeheartedly thank you in aiding us to raise $155,000 at our 2013 Banquet at the Beach, our costs will be around $7000 for the event.

We had a fantastic day at the banquet with great entertainment from Jedd Weston, Trent Bowater and Jim Haynes. Good support for our auction items, silent auction and balloon prizes some items reaching double their value. The circus theme added some great fun to the day with some attendees dressing up.


We are purchasing ten new specialised chairs for chemotherapy department of the Cancer Care Centre in Wollongong. We will also donate to Cancer research at the UOW into pancreatic cancer. The other project the Cancer Carers have is the Palliative care unit at Port Kembla Hospital which needs brightening up. We are assessing what can be done to make it more pleasant and comfortable for patients and their families.


Please be assured we will continue to strive towards our aim to maximise care, comfort and support to cancer patients and trust that you will be part of our future fund raising efforts towards achieving this.



Yours sincerely
