The wind chills in Adelaide didn’t stop around 340 attendees from having a good time at the Queen Victoria Auxiliary’s “Book Club” film night, held during August at the Regal Theatre in Kensington, in support of the Women’s and Babies’ Division at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

The movie got good reviews and the Fundraiser was a success, as funds are raised to facilitate purchase of Bili-Blanket Phototherapy System.

About Bili-Blanket Phototherapy System

For many years phototherapy treatment in the hospital has been provided by a row of lights or a spotlight suspended at a distance from a baby. Today, advancements in technology have led to a new phototherapy system which gives effective treatment without the inconveniences of conventional phototherapy treatment. Bili-Blankets are fibre-optic blankets used for effective treatment of jaundice in newborns. With this convenient form of phototherapy baby can be diapered, clothed, held, and nursed during treatment.

We appreciate the support from the WCH Executive team, hospital staff and friends who attended the event.

The success from this event would not have been possible without the amazing support from the Queen Victoria Auxiliary major sponsor, Angove Family Winemakers, fifth generation South Australian family business with a passion for crafting iconic and single vineyard wines from McLaren Vale since 1886.

Victoria and her family provide continuous support to QV Auxiliary fundraising events by supplying the wine for the occasion. In addition to that a percentage of wine sales, generated from order forms placed during the event, will also be donated.

The Friends of WCH would also like to thank the Kensington Regal Theatre for their support of this event.

Thank you to all involved and to all that attended, your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Compliments to the Auxiliary President Mary, the Committee, Members of the Queen Victoria Auxiliary and their families for organising another successful event which raised over $6,000.
