GALLERY: Bright turn out for palliative care lunch
IT WAS a fullhouse of 200, for the Light up a Life lunch at Kingscliff on Friday October 9, 2015.
National project manager Liza Nagy said the event was sold out, with people on a waiting list for the fashion parade hosted by Natalie Gruzlewski, at Salt Bistro.
The TV personality is an ambassador for the Tweed Palliative Support (TPS) charity who gave her mother care before she passed away in 2007.
"I'm thrilled at the turn-out today," Ms Gruzlewski said.
Palliative care is such an important cause and the service Tweed Palliative Support and Wedgetail Retreat provide for the community is so important," she said.
TPS president Meredith Dennis said volume of patrons to the fashion show and auction highlighted the community's awareness of the need for quality end-of-life care.
The Tweed Daily News had supported the event through the Hospice Appeal campaign, which aims to raise $500,000 needed for nursing wages at the TPS Wedgetail Retreat and Hospice in Dulguigun.
