Each October we host our annual Tea4TROG event. It provides a great opportunity to connect with local businesses and community members over a high tea while also raising valuable funds for TROG Cancer Research.
As our TROG Cancer Research high tea fundraiser grows in success year on year, our last event proved to be no exception with the sold-out event celebrating record numbers.
Hosted by cancer survivor and radio broadcaster Julie McCrossin, the event was entertaining and informative as Julie spoke of her own experience of head and neck radiation therapy and her amazingly positive results.
Our guest speaker, Associate Professor Puma Sundaresan, Consultant Radiation Oncologist at Blacktown and Westmead Hospital and member of the TROG Scientific Committee and TROG Cancer Research Board member, provided an inspiring and informative presentation on TROG Cancer Research processes.
Focusing on trial development from initial stages through to end results of changing clinical practice, she provided guests with insight into the vital role TROG Cancer Research plays for researchers, medical professionals, patients, and the wider community. As well as enjoying a sumptuous high tea, guests showed great generosity taking part in a silent auction and raffle with plenty of donated prizes.
You can also host your own Tea4TROG, and in the past, we have had with numerous successful events take place across the country during the month of October, all funds raised going directly to TROG Cancer Research clinical trials.
Our event sponsors included ACIM Solutions, Monica Clare Recruitment and Varley Group with support from local companies such as Seed Consulting and The Marketing GP.
We aim to again host Tea4TROG when limits on public gatherings are lifted and we would love you to join us.
