“Motherhood the Musical” – a great success!
On Friday 28 October, 2011, many gathered for a PRaMM fundraising event at Glen Street Theatre, Belrose. There was a fantastic response to this event with subsequent feedback about just how much everyone enjoyed the whole evening. Most people commented that they would be inviting many more friends to future events. Preshow drinks and canapes were served prior to the show. “Motherhood the Musical” was given rave reviews.
During the post-show coffee and refreshments Professor Jonathan Morris gave a short speech about the importance of research to help improve pregnancy outcomes for all mothers and babies. He thanked all who supported the research by attending, purchasing raffle tickets and particularly those who had sponsored the event. These included Superfresh at Crows Nest who donated large amounts of fruit for the function and AboutLife Catering who donated a number of platters. Glen St Theatre provided much assistance in the organisation of the event and the venue and staff were exemplary.

All prizes were generously donated and included accommodation for 5 nights at “Diamond on Pearl” donated by Drs Michelle Chen and Steven Tan, Accommodation and breakfast for 2 at Quay Grand Suites, a $500 Winnings gift voucher, Dinner for 2 at Berowra Waters Inn, Endota Spa Gift Voucher, Captain Cook Dinner Cruise for 2, Dinner for 2 at Coast Roof Top Bar, Lunch for 2 at Ad Lib Bistro, Gift voucher from Shack, Dinner for 2 at Angel Restaurant, Gift voucher from Jodie McGregor Flowers, Dinner for 2 at Mrs Top Restaurant, Food and beverage voucher from Burlington Bar and Dining, Breakfast for 2 at Public Dining Room - Balmoral, Gift voucher from Maternal Bliss (Maternity & Breast feeding wear).
