On Thursday 27 October 2011, in the presence of Patron The Hon. John Fahey AC, friends and supporters of the Sydney Burns Foundation met at King Street Wharf to board The Blue Room, and Cruise for a Cause on beautiful Sydney Harbour.

Auctioneer extraordinaire Louise Purtle from Sydney Auctions kindly donated her time and in a sterling fashion auctioned all of the live auction items available on the evening.

Louise’s effort combined with ticket sales and a host of silent auction items ensured a profit of $25,000 for the evening.

The Council of the Sydney Burns Foundation would like to thank our sponsor, Ausgrid, and our friends for their extremely generous support of the event. Such support will go a long way to one day allow researchers supported by the Sydney Burns Foundation to achieve their goal of producing a three-dimensional living-skin equivalent for deep burn patients.

Thank you!

Our friends and supporters include:
