The Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club has raised more than $15,000 for the ECU Parkinson’s Research Centre (ParkC) at their annual Melbourne Cup lunch fundraiser.
This is the second year that the Club has supported ParkC and the event was a great success with more than 300 guests celebrating the Cup ‘casino royale’ style.
ParkC Director, Dr Meghan Thomas thanked Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club for their support, and explained how the funds raised will support ParkC research projects into the future.
ParkC would like to thank all those who supported the event by donating auction and raffle prizes and buying raffle tickets.
