RACS WA Women in Surgery IWD High Tea 2023
A wonderful celebration of International Women's Day 2023 was held by the RACS WA Women in Surgery Advisory Group at a High Tea on Saturday 11 March at Crystal Club Lounge, Crown Towers Perth.
It was a fabulous opportunity to network & enjoy the insightful presentation from our guest speaker, Dr Paola Magni, whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the Swan River. Congratulations to Alexa Prawdiuk, the winner of the special door prize on the day, a stunning pair of freshwater white pearl earrings by Keiko Uno Jewellery.
Please save the date for our next Women in Surgery event – a special Cocktail Evening – Wednesday 20 September 2023. The venue of this event is under close wraps for now, but promises to be worth the wait!
RACS WA Surgeons Ball 2023
What a wonderful evening this was!
Our Fellows, Trainees and their partners exchanged surgical scrubs for black tie attire at the RACS WA Surgeons Ball 2023 on Saturday 18 March 2023 at the The Ritz-Carlton Perth. A total amount of $27,238 was raised through a live auction, silent auction & raffle for the Pangea Global Health Education charity. Professor Kate Drummond AM, Chair of Pangea, was delighted with the outcome which will go towards their September trip abroad to Malawi, delivering educational programs to their partner communities which, in turn, will develop long-term, sustainable improvements in healthcare.
The major prize of the raffle was a stunning gold & diamond necklace, valued at over $10,000 and generously donated by Tiffany & Co. With a ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ 1920’s inspired theme, guests were welcomed to the venue with smooth jazz vocal tunes by Little Belle, followed by Dr Stephen Rodrigues opening the event as MC for the evening. Guests later grooved to the sounds of the 6-piece Little Belle band & had some fun at the 1920’s inspired photo booth. St John of God Healthcare, Saturn Pathology and Tiffany & Co were platinum sponsors for the evening.
