Next week’s Girls’ Night Out will again be raising money for the Echuca Regional Health oncology departmentTRENT HORNEMAN July 12, 2014 3:49am
A former country girl from central Victoria, who is now press secretary to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott will be guest presenter at the 2014 Girls Night Out event in Echuca next week.
Sally Branson, 36, will travel from Canberra to headline the function, which will raise funds for the oncology department at Echuca Regional Health.
GNO 2014 ‘Celebrating the Sisterhood’ is at Radcliffes Restaurant on Friday from 6.30pm to 9pm and will celebrate the achievements of every day women living extraordinary lives.
GNO committee member Leonie Canham said the presentation by Ms Branson promised to be a highlight of the event.
‘‘Sally is a connector from the country,’’ Ms Canham said.
‘‘She grew up not far from Echuca, at the small farming community of Colbinabbin where she went to school with 20 country kids just like her.
‘‘These days she is a highly motivated and enthusiastic communications specialist who prior to her post with the Prime Minister, has worked as a media affairs specialist with the United States Consulate General and as managing director of Melbourne Public Relations powerhouse Undertow Media.
‘‘Sally lives a pretty extraordinary professional life, but she loves high heels, lippy, leopard print and a night out with her girls as much as the next person.’’
The Echuca-Moama GNO initiative started in 2008 and is the much-loved creation of a small collective of women who have experienced first-hand the impact of cancer on loved ones.
The charity has raised more than $130,000 for the GNO Oncology Department Supportive Care Fund at ERH.
Tickets to GNO 2014 ‘Celebrating The Sisterhood’ are $50 and include champagne, wine and finger-food.
Entertainment will be provided by Melbourne-based musician Marty Rose who is world-renowned as Australia’s premier piano man and rock ‘n’ roll icon.
Tickets are available at Paperartzi or online at www.trybooking.com/87535
