Put on your cowboy hat and saddle up for a trip to the Wild West at this year’s Mayor’s Charity Gala Dinner that will help raise funds to purchase a new scalp-cooling machine and chemotherapy chair for the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre.

“The doctors and nurses at the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre have provided a vital service to thousands of people across the region over the past 20 years,” Mayor of Campbelltown George Greiss said.

“That’s why I’m delighted to announce the therapy centre as the recipient for my charity gala dinner and I call on our generous local business community to once again step up and help raise funds for this important equipment.”

Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are now available to support the event that includes dinner, drinks, entertainment and lots of fun and coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Centre in Campbelltown.

Over the past year, the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre saw 5077 patients, a 5.4% increase from the previous year, while more than 49,000 treatments were administered to people.

Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre Director Dr Annette Tognela thanked Cr Greiss and Campbelltown Council for their support.

“We are thrilled the mayor’s charity dinner is supporting our centre this year and we are looking forward to a fantastic event,’’ Dr Tognela said.

The Mayor’s Charity Gala Dinner is at Ottimo House on Saturday 4 March 2023. Tickets are $150 per person or $1400 for a table of 10 people available here.
