On Saturday 8 September, Northern Health Foundation patron Bev Carman hosted the annual Northern Health Foundation Race Day at the Kilmore Racing Club. Funds this year went towards research grants at Northern Health.
140 guests were invited to wear their best race day attire and they didn’t disappoint. The room was filled to the brim with fascinators and fancy frocks. The weather was perfect and it was a great day for would be punters.
Professor Peter Brooks, board member of the Northern Health Foundation highlighted just how important research grants are. “We’re at this fantastic track and this event is a great omen. If you want to invest in something, invest in research. If you invest $1 in research, you get $7 back into the community”.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the event. And a very special thank you to our generous sponsors John Molnar Legal Services, Epping Plaza Hotel and A Little Birdie Told Me.
We would also like to thank Bev Carman, who has been a long standing supporter of Northern Health and her dedicated supporters who assisted in setting up the venue and working with the Kilmore Racing Club.
