Women@the Alfred Chairman's Lunch
Friday 19 Aug 2016
Since 2001, Women@the Alfred has championed men’s health, raising millions of dollars for the Alfred to treat men suffering with prostate cancer.
And in 2016, the group’s dedicated support of the Alfred continued, with the 13th Annual Chairman’s Lunch.
Held at Crown Casino’s Palladium Room on the 12th of August, the lunch brought together over 600 of Melbourne’s most influential leaders in business, health, sport and the media. Together the room raised in excess of a quarter of a million dollars for prostate cancer care at the Alfred.
MC’d by Australian cricket legend Simon O’Donnell, this year’s lunch proved a great success. A highlight of the event was the address by special guest speaker Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin AC – the current Chief of the Australian Defence Force.
Women@the Alfred has again put its heart and soul into achieving its ambitions. As Carolyn Stubbs, Chairman of Women@the Alfred, said:
“Our original objective was to raise awareness of prostate cancer – the silent killer of the men we love. Then, along the way, we realised that raising awareness offered the opportunity to raise funds… we needed to create a platform and that platform is the Chairman’s Lunch.”
