Down Under Fundraiser Week at The Deck Marina Bar and Restaurant, Port Geographe Marina.
The Deck Marina Bar and Restaurant in association with Women Supporting Women Network are proud to announce a week of fundraising for GAIN. GAIN (Gynaecological Awareness Information Network) is a not for profit organisation driving awareness and education on gynaecological health matter. It’s founder, Kath Mazzella (Order of Australia recipient) has endured the trauma of being diagnosed with, and treated extensively, for a gynaecological cancer – vulval cancer. Kath established GAIN Inc in Perth, Western Australia, in February 2001, when she sought a support network for women who had endured the similar trauma of a gynaecological cancer, and found none. Many women afflicted with gynaecological conditions feel alienated and isolated. They often suffer in silence and lack the courage to share their anguish.
The Downunder Fundraising week starts On Monday 31st October and will finish on Sunday 7th November. Several events will be held at The Deck Marina Bar and Restaurant and fundraising tins will be on display in the bar all week for coin donation as well as several prominent business’s in town.
