Cade donates artwork to fight Aussie kids cancer
For the second year in a row, I was thrilled to donate the first edition of City Lights II (2009) to raise critical funds for the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia (CCIA). At the annual Diamond Ball in August in Sydney, we manged to raise well over half a million dollars.
These funds play a significant role in the future approach to childhood cancer - the development of a Personalised Medicine Program. This program will enable researchers to identify treatments tailored to the individual characteristics and biology of a child's cancer, incorporating drugs that have the greatest likelihood of successfully treating each child's cancer.
Next year, I have decided to increase my support by donating another large artwork and I have also booked a full table of ten for the 2014 Diamond Ball. If you would like to join me, please get in touch as my table is almost full! For more information on this incredible organisation, visit www.ccia.org.au
