Radio supports children’s cancer charity

Thursday 22 May, 2003

On-air radio celebrities and radio decision-makers from around Australia will host and attend a charity luncheon and auction to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research (CCIA).

The lunch will be held in Sydney on Friday, 17 October, and is a popular part of the annual radio fest, which attracts more than 700 industry people for a seminar, new music showcase and the Australian Commercial Radio Awards.

“Commercial radio is delighted to support the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia and their world class research into childhood cancer,” said Commercial Radio Australia CEO Joan Warner.

CCIA is the only independent medical research institute solely devoted to research into the prevention, causes and cure of childhood cancer. In Australia, more children die from cancer than from any other disease - with over 700 new cases diagnosed each year. Of those children diagnosed, three out of ten do not survive.

Warner said the charity luncheon will be open to the Australian business community and urged senior business people to support the event, to be held at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre.

CCIA’s Chairman John McAdam said: "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of such a great event. Without the generous support of organisations like Commercial Radio Australia, CCIA would not be able to carry out its vital research - dedicated to saving the lives of all children with cancer and eliminating their suffering".
