Strings in the Stable, Jamberoo – Our most successful fundraiser to date
In late November, 2017, we were delighted to be the recipient of $19,625.00, raised through Strings in the Stable, an annual classical music and picnic day hosted by Peter and Trish Murray on their stunning property in Jamberoo. The warm welcome and generosity of Peter and Trish provided the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful day. With guests nestled in the stable and the steady sea breeze adding to the atmosphere, the wonderful classical sound of Anna Albert and Bellezza Strings was captivating. Guests enjoyed their picnic lunches sat on the luxuriant lawns, which was followed by a raffle to complete a fun filled and very special day.
The EnGeneIC Cancer Research Foundation would like to sincerely thank Peter and Trish Murray for organising the event, their guests for sharing in such a special day and the number of individuals who contributed towards the raffle.
