Melbourne Cancerians pay tribute to supporters

The Melbourne Cancerians’ end-of-year cocktail party honoured the many generous individuals and organisations that helped them raise money for the ACRF in 2004.

Over 100 people attended the party at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne, which also paid tribute to Melbourne Cancerians’ inaugural Chairman — the Hon Marie Tehan, who passed away after a short illness in November 2004.

During the evening, the ACRF presented a $1 million cheque to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, as part of its 2004 annual grant allocation. The event was sponsored by the Grand Hyatt Melbourne. The hotel’s General Manager, Michel Koopman, is a long standing supporter of the ACRF, through his association with the Canberra and Melbourne Cancerians.
