One of the highlights of NSW Senior’s Week kicked off on March 22nd, with a mighty Hurrah! The Premier’s Gala Concert series attracts more than 30,000 Seniors from all over NSW, with a key event being the annual Senior’s Week concert, this year themed ‘After Dark’.
Funded by the State Government the fabulous concerts are free for anyone aged over 60 in NSW – acknowledging and celebrating the contribution Seniors make to the community.
The Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) was privileged to be invited to be involved in the event for the second year running, by Workplace Giving supporters the NSW Department of Ageing, Disability & Home Care (ADHC). The ACRF had a presence at the Entertainment Centre for the two days the concerts were being held. And we had a ball! There was lively music and a buzz in the crowd. It was so lovely to be in the midst of all these wonderful seniors – and to share in their stories, experiences and lives.
ACRF also gave away a prize to of 4 rounds of golf at the Dunheved Golf Course in St Marys, generously donated to us in memory of a past member. Congratulations goes to Gerry McInerney, we hope you enjoy the prize – and make sure you have wear plenty of sunscreen for your golf bonanza!
On behalf of the team at ACRF, we want to say ‘A Big Thank you’ – to everyone we met at the Senior’s Week Premier’s Gala Concert, ADHC for allowing us the opportunity to be involved, and to the NSW Government for putting it all together!
