2015 Avenir de l'espoir

2015 Avenir de l’espoir (Future of Hope) Dinner

Our 4th annual dinner was held on Friday 1st May 2015 at Doltone House Sylvania Waters.  The Avenir de L’espoir (Future of Hope) event was an elegant candlelight dinner with Natarsha Belling as our MC for the evening with 368 people attending the event and raised $165,000 for the Dermatology - Vascular Birthmark Clinic. We purchased a laser machine for the department. The Vascular Birthmarks Clinic is one of the leading multidisciplinary teams in Australia for children with vascular malformations. The dedicated team from this specialist clinic treat children with prominent and extensive vascular malformations or birthmarks treated to correct or reduce these highly visible marks, which are usually on the face. Sadly, the children they look after are prone to frequent questioning and even bullying about their visible birthmarks.
