Two and a half weeks to go

Posted by Kylie Flament on 27 August 2013
The Echo Gala Dinner, which Carol Caleo and her wonderful family have been working on for months, is almost here!  We're very much looking forward to being there on the night as Carol's team do their utmost to get us across the line in our bid to purchase a new echo (cardiac ultrasound) machine.  Over 200 people have already purchased tickets, but there are a few more tables still up for grabs if you get in quick.  Head to www.echogaladinner.com or contact Carol on 0412 263 294 to purchase tickets. With live entertainment, some amazing charity auctions (big and small) and a lavish meal at the Sofitel, it's sure to be a night to remember.  And having met nine-year-old Paris last week, I know that her story is one you definitely want to hear. See you there! Photo: little Jimmy, whose parents will be at the Echo Gala Dinner in support of the fundraising efforts being undertaken to help us diagnose and treat more little ones like him ...

Going wild at the Color Run

Posted by Kylie Flament on 26 August 2013

Ten white-clad staff and supporters of the Heart Centre for Children were in Centennial Park first thing Sunday morning in the glorious sunshine with 20,000 others.  After a few mexican waves, cheers and roars we raced down the 5km track, straight into the Blue Zone where we were squirted with blue chalk, then on to Mellow Yellow, the Orange Zone, the Pink Zone and finally over the finish line, laughing and cheering. 

It was a fun morning out that raised some money for the Heart Centre and had us all grinning.  It was great to see some of our patients and their families there too.  We're already looking forward to the next one!

City2Surf team's big day

Posted by Kylie Flament on 12 August 2013
The sun was shining, birds were chirping and our six-strong City2Surf team made their way (with 85,000 of our closest friends) from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach yesterday in no time.  Phil and Charles sprinted to the finish, Lexi and Michelle followed soon after, and Nadine and I meandered our way to join them in our own good time as runners we are not.  We had a wonderful day though, a very warm welcome at the Bandaged Bear tent, and the satisfaction of knowing that with your support we raised almost $3,000 for the Heart Centre for Children. So thank you to all of our generous donors, and we hope to see some of you on the BB team next year!

City2Surf this Saturday

Posted by Kylie Flament on 6 August 2013

Some of the Heart Centre staff are once again joining more than 85,000 people to run, walk or crawl the 14km from Sydney city to Bondi beach.  We'll be getting up early on a Sunday to sweat it out with our peers as a fundraiser for the Heart Centre for Children, working towards our goal of purchasing a new cardiac ultrasound (echo) machine which cost almost $400,000.  We have raised just over $95,000 as of this week, so we're well on our way but we need your help.  Please sponsor us for the City2Surf here: https://city2surf2013.everydayhero.com/au/the-pacemakers.  Alternatively, you can click here to find out how else you can help.

Gala Dinner success!

Posted by Kylie Flament on 29 July 2013

A huge THANK YOU to Rachael, Belinda and Erin who organised the fabulous Zipper Tickers gala dinner in Newcastle this weekend.  The venue was stunning, speeches touching and guests generous.  It was a huge success in raising much-needed funds for an echo machine for the Heart Centre for Children, and a credit to the wonderful organisers.  There are a few photos available via The Herald and should be more to come.

Congratulations Nichole and Glen!

Posted by Kylie Flament on 17 July 2013

Nichole and Glen, parents of little Mosiah who sadly passed away in early 2009, recently set themselves a fundraising goal of $3,000 for the Heart Centre for Children.  They geared up for the Suncorp Gold Coast 5.7km run on the 6th of July and put the word out there about their aim.  I was delighted to come back from leave this week to see that they absolutely smashed their target, and have raised a grand total of $3,887!  Congratulations guys, you've done an amazing job and I can't wait to hear about how your first fun run went!

Thank you Glengara!

Posted by Kylie Flament on 24 June 2013

Thank you to Janice, John and everyone at Glengara Retirement Village for your generosity over the weekend.

We were kindly invited along to watch the Waratah Girls Choir perform on Saturday afternoon (and they were breathtakingly good!).  Retire Australia, Glengara Village and some of the individual residents then made some kind donations to the Heart Centre for Children as the charity of choice, which will be put towards new equipment to help us to diagnose and treat more children.

It was wonderful to meet some of the residents, hear their stories and feel what a wonderful community they have at Glengara.  Thank you again to all of you.  It was a wonderful afternoon and we hope to see you again soon!
