HEAVEN CAN WAIT CHARITY DINNER - FEBRUARY 23 AT THE RMYC TORONTO

The annual Heaven Can Wait (HCW) Charity Dinner will be held on Friday February 23 at the RMYC Toronto and precedes the HCW Regatta over the following 2 days. 

The dinner is part of the Heaven Can Wait fundraising effort which includes a 2 course meal with wine, guest speakers interviewed by ABC Newcastle sports commentator Helene O’Neill, a Charity Auction and Raffles.

About our guest speakers:

Have you ever wondered what design considerations are required to get those giant Americas Cup catamarans up on foils, or what the future holds for foiling mono hulled boats? Brett Ellis is an engineer who until recently was contracted to the Artemis Americas Cup team to design their foils and dagger boards. Brett has a depth of experience in this area and will no doubt be able to enlighten you on the ins, outs and directions this innovation is taking us in.

As you know the Heaven Can Wait Regatta is all about raising money for the Hunter Branch of Cancer Council NSW, but do you know what is going on behind the scenes to help reduce the impact of some of the worst cancers.  Our second guest is Dr Craig Gedye - a researcher with the Calvary Mater and the University of Newcastle. He is particularly interested in and will enlighten us on the work he is doing with kidney, prostate and brain cancer, and more specifically, how these cancers change their form and function to evade treatments. 

. So, book your tickets now by emailing hcwdinner@rmyctoronto.com.au or call Jan Richardson on 0419 902 466. Tickets are $55.00 each and must be paid for at time of booking - Credit cards are accepted (Visa and Mastercard). Bookings close on February 20.
