The MC Committee is thrilled to announce that $45,759.89 was raised for cystic fibrosis research

The MC Committee believe that supporting medical research here in Western Australia is a positive way of fighting this cruel condition.

100% of the funds raised go into the Glenn Brown Memorial Grant, allowing researchers to further their investigations on researching cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis.

While the emphasis of the day is fun, laughter, and entertainment, we took the time to consider the purpose of the event.

Guest speaker Dr Ingrid Laing, a respiratory researcher at the Telethon Kids Institute, inspired guests as she spoke of her life with cystic fibrosis and how through her research, she strives to make a difference for children living with CF.

Over the past seven years, the Melbourne Cup Luncheon has raised more than $380,000.

The Committee would like to thank everyone who donated and/or attended the event.
