A big thank you to our supporters

Last night, the Northern Health Foundation held their annual ‘Thank You’ event, acknowledging the continued and generous contributions of Foundation supporters and their families.

Held at The Mail Exchange Hotel, a historical Melbourne venue owned by Foundation patron Alex Robertson, the evening was filled with great food and networking, and was a wonderful way to personally show our supporters the difference they have made to Northern Health.

Andrew Williamson, Executive Director Public Affairs and Foundation, opened the event by highlighting how the contributions of our donors has helped to improve and upgrade several areas throughout Northern Health, including the Children’s Ward, Neonatal Unit, Day Oncology Unit, Paediatric Emergency High Acuity Unit, Paediatric High Dependency Unit (currently under construction), the purchase of emergency accommodation in Wollert and funding of research scholarships and programs.

John Molnar, Northern Health Foundation Board Chair, said the Foundation exists to support the life changing, and often life-saving, work of Northern Health.

“I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to all of our generous supporters, patrons, corporate partners, dedicated volunteers, Northern Health staff and everyone who has contributed towards our fundraising efforts through donations, grants and support at our events,” he said.

“As the demand for health services in the north continues to increase, the Foundation will continue to do all it can to support Northern Health to provide outstanding health care for our community,” he added.

“Thank you for your continued support of the Northern Health Foundation.”
