THE PROFESSIONALS Real Estate Group will once again host Western Australia’s biggest Pink Ribbon Breakfast to raise money for breast cancer research. The fundraiser will be held at the Burswood Convention Centre on Friday, 16 October 2009.
Claudia Bertorello will once again host the event, with Alison Braun from The Biggest Loser and Sheryl McCorry, author of the novel ‘Diamonds and Dust’, the guest speakers. Brothers Courtney and Chris Murphy will provide musical entertainment.
Professionals Chief Executive Officer, David Hobbs, said he was proud that his group had raised more than $250,000 towards breast cancer research in 2008 as a Diamond Partner of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
“This year we’re hoping to do even better, but we really need the WA business community to put up their hands and come on board as event partners to support one of Australia’s most highly respected not-for-profit organisations,” he said.
“While all Professionals offices make individual donations and raise funds through a range of local activities over the year, the Pink Ribbon Breakfast is the highlight of our fundraising calendar. Our goal is to raise over $50,000 on the morning, but we need your help. With over 500 of Perth’s most prominent business people in attendance at the Pink Ribbon Breakfast, this is an ideal opportunity to network at the highest level, while at the same time raising vital funds to beat this devastating and widespread illness. Businesses can also purchase tables for the breakfast and we urgently need raffle auction and door prizes – hampers, vouchers, products, services – anything you can spare to help us boost the total raised.”
Mr Hobbs said Professionals Real Estate Group became a NBCF Corporate Partner in 2001 and three years ago stepped-up to become Diamond Partners, joining the likes of David Jones, News Limited, Hallmark and Target.
