Intouch : In Touch Autumn 2014
8 IN TOUCH AUTUMN 2014 On Thursday, 27 February, AlzNSW was fortunate to play host to A Night With Parky, with Sir Michael Parkinson and Ita Buttrose at Doltone House in Pyrmont, Sydney. The night was a resounding success, with more than 470 people joining AlzNSW for a glamorous evening of delicious food and fantastic entertainment, all while raising funds for a great cause. The sold-out event made $110,000 in proft to keep the AlzNSW Memory Van's wheels turning. Undoubtedly, a highlight of the evening was watching the tables turn as veteran journalist, author and talkshow host Sir Michael Parkinson CBE was interviewed by 2013 Australian of the Year, Ita Buttrose AO OBE. AlzNSW Ambassador Natarsha Belling was dazzling as the evening's MC and sisters Kia and Sian Woodmore captured the audience's attention when they shared their personal journey as carers of a parent living with younger onset dementia. AlzNSW CEO The Hon. John Watkins said he was thrilled with the generosity of those who attended A Night with Parky. "AlzNSW needs to say a very special thank you for the support of all those who attended, NRMA Motoring & Services for sponsoring the event, and of course to our special guests Sir Michael Parkinson and Ita Buttrose, along with Natarsha Belling, for making the evening such a success, " John said. "The money that was raised will be used to sustain the vital services of the Memory Van throughout 2014 and will allow us to continue to deliver information, education and support to those who need it – right across NSW. "We are very fortunate to have the support and friendship of such wonderful people as Sir Michael, Ita and Natarsha. "We are also very fortunate to have the support of the many friends who came along on the night who helped make the event such a success.
