Macedonian Community Newcastle

“The Macedonian Community Newcastle have always been very conscious of the need to fundraise generously for good causes. In 2019, a long-standing committee member, Nick Zulumovski, nominated to hold our first ever Charity Ball to raise funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. A fundraising committee was formed that planned and coordinated all details including sponsors, music, prizes, advertising and media.

The event was black tie and spectacular with attendees dressing up for a good cause. ACRF representative Liviana Oprea also attended and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. A photo booth was available to record the fun memories, great raffles all throughout the evening and the night consisted of both traditional Macedonian music and popular English music.

Nick Zulumovski was very vocal in choosing this charity as a result of close family and friends who’ve been affected by cancer. As a community, we all know someone who is been affected by this awful disease and the decision was supported by all the committee.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our sponsors, donors, guests and everyone who contributed to making the night such a wonderful and successful event!”

Australian Cancer Research Foundation would like to extend our deepest thanks to all who contributed to such a successful event, and to Macedonian Community Newcastle for the generous support.
