2017 TeamKids Easter Appeal
TeamKids - Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation would like to thank you for your kind generosity in supporting the TeamKids Easter Appeal which was held on Good Friday, 14 April 2017. Your contribution helped us to reach a tally in excess of our $1 million target, with the current tally of funds pledged at $1,556,720!
Funds raised as part of this year’s Appeal will go towards a range of projects including the TeamKids Arts in Health program, a purpose built and fully furnished Beach House in Victor Harbor for use by families with a child requiring palliative care or with complex care needs, and a revolutionary new cancer research project known as CAR-T.
There were so many highlights this year and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the South Australian community, the talented performers, and volunteers who gave up their time over Easter to support this important cause. In 2017, for the first time we enlisted the help of six Young Ambassadors who co-hosted the Appeal. Clara, Lauren, Jessica, Tara, Josh and Jordan are all ex-patients of the Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH). We thank them for supporting our connection with the WCH, it's patients, and their families. CLICK HERE to meet them.
A special mention also goes out to our valued partners, in particular our 2017 Presenting Partners - Westpac and Telstra.
Thank you again for your contribution in making this years’ event such a success. Your gift will help change the lives of thousands of women, babies and children who rely on the Hospital every year.
We look forward to working with you again on the 2018 TeamKids Easter Appeal!
