Africa night for cancer research a huge success

Family and friends of Deb & Karen Short were treated to a taste of Africa at their recent fundraising night. The mother-daughter duo are continuing their fundraising efforts for cancer research in the lead up to their Mt Kilimanjaro climb in December.

The night was a great success with around 250 people in attendance, all wearing their African-themed costumes. An African drumming group and photo booth provided fantastic entertainment and memories for all attendees.

Deb & Karen have been overwhelmed by the support they have received from family, friends and local businesses – raising $10,500 from the Africa night. This takes their fundraising total to over $20,000 – double their target! And they are not slowing down yet – there are still some more fundraising projects to come, including ‘Africa day’ at the school where Deb teaches.

Thank you Deb, Karen & all your supporters for your amazing fundraising for cancer research!
