Epworth Medical Foundation’s Men’s Health Lunch Raises $200,000

May 29, 2018| Epworth News /

A big thanks to everyone who was involved in the 2018 Epworth Medical Foundation Men’s Health Lunch on Thursday 10 May.

The event raised an amazing $200,000, which will go towards prostate cancer research and the purchase of medical equipment for our cardiac operating theatres.

Both are incredibly important, with prostate cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and cardiac disease being one of the leading causes of death among males in Australia.

The funds raised at the event will ensure our team have the best equipment and treatments available, so that our patients can continue to receive the highest quality care.
— Cathi Biddick AM, Chair of the Epworth Special Events Committee

Over the last six years, the Men’s Health Lunch has raised over $1 million, which has directly supported research projects across an array of men’s health programs and the purchase of new medical and training equipment.

A special thanks to our major sponsor, Medownick Laser Clinic, associate sponsor, Advantage Salary Packaging and to our table sponsors and event partners.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Men’s Health Lunch on Thursday 9 May.
