$14000 for Karuna!

Posted on 26 May 2017

We are so very proud of Queensland Medical Orchestra and all our supporters.

Today, Dr Ryan Williams (our Artistic Director), Dr Penny Mainstone (bass clarinettist and palliative care physician), Dr Roger Allison (bass clarinettist and radiation oncologist), Emma Lumsden (4th year medical student, pianist and managing director of Ashintosh Foundation), visited Karuna Hospice Services and presented them with a cheque for $14000. This was money raised from our 'Care to Dance?' concert, in memory of Dr John Roberts whom we lost to pancreatic cancer last year. We are sincerely thankful to our sponsors, musicians, guest performers, Queensland Ballet Academy and everyone in our audience for their support - without whom we would not have been able to raise such a phenomenal amount for Karuna. The funds will ensure that Karuna can continue to provide such an important service to our community. 

This was an outcome beyond our expectations, so a very sincere big Thank You to all our supporters.

UPCOMING EVENTS

SCREEN & STAGE SPECTACULAR

Join us for an afternoon of music from Blockbuster Movies and Broadway Shows. The program includes themes from Star Wars, Mission Impossible, Lord of the Rings, to stage musical excerpts from Wicked, Chicago, and Westside Story, just to name a few. Proceeds from this concert will go to both Ashintosh Foundation and CHIRF. CHIRF is a Health Promotion Charity to support medical and allied services for the Mallacoota community which kept running even when it was isolated during the bushfires. Proceeds from this concert will replenish their clinics, and increase the much-needed services in the coming months of rebuilding.
