2016 The Cornucopia Committee is planning to host our Race Day in the Champagne Bar at Royal Randwick on Wednesday 18 May 2016. Please put this date in your diaries.
We are delighted to announce that on Australia Day this year, Dorothy Ryan, President of the Cornucopia Committee was recognised with the Order of Australia, for her significant contribution to the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
The Committee is immensely proud of this achievement and with your ongoing help and support we will steadfastly continue with this important work.
The Cornucopia Committee wish to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your support in 2015.
Although it has been an extremely difficult year for raising funds we have managed to distribute $73,500.00 to the Royal Hospital for Women, Royal North Shore CPU, The Children’s Hospital Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick and CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Service), and we would like to thank you for assisting us in making this possible.
Almost daily we hear or read about horrific reports of child abuse in our communities. Whilst it sometimes seems almost overwhelming to the members of our Committee at the same time it renews our determination to try to fight for the elimination of this scourge from our society. Hopefully you will continue to partner us in this fight.
Dorothy Ryan OAM
President, The Cornucopia Committee Inc
TOGETHER WE CAN HELP PREVENT CHILD ABUSE.
