You’re invited to the Breast Night Ever Fire and Ice Gala.
Gold Logie winning actor, comedian and co-founder of Love Your Sister, Samuel Johnson OAM, will be a key feature of Breast Night Ever’s Fire and Ice Spectacular coming to Brisbane on Saturday 10 August.
Love Your Sister is a million-strong village of everyday Aussies committed to vanquishing all cancers with hard science. Samuel Johnson set up the charity with his sister, Connie who battled bone cancer as a child, uterine cancer in her twenties, and finally a terminal case of breast cancer which she lived with until her passing at the age of 33 in 2017.
The event at MODA, Portside, Hamilton, will mark the final stop of Mr Johnson’s Queensland tour where he has been advocating a change in the way cancer is managed and treated in Australia.
The dinner, coordinated by Breast Night Ever founder Paula Lucas will raise funds for Love Your Sister which Johnson founded with his sister Connie, with the mission of “vanquishing all cancers with hard science”. Connie, after a lifetime battling cancer, passed away from breast cancer in 2017.
Johnson will be a key speaker of the night and will share an announcement exclusively with the night’s guests, while also being available for ‘meet and greets’.
“I’ll be sharing an update on what Love Your Sister has been doing in relation to cancer treatment, management and understanding in Australia. I won’t give too much away ahead of the night, but I look forward to sharing some exciting updates with Brisbane,” he said.
Toowoomba woman, Ms Lucas began Breast Night Ever last year, driven by the impact cancer has had on her family. She is a cancer survivor and sadly lost her sister from cancer in March. She hopes Fire and Ice will raise $50,000 to support Love Your Sister.
“We’ve been so impressed by Samuel Johnson, the advocacy work he has done, and his attitude towards making a real change in cancer treatment in Australia,” she said.
“My hope is that every person who attends Fire and Ice will walk away inspired and with much hope for huge but long overdue changes to cancer treatment in our country.
“The reason I run events like Fire and Ice is in spite of cancer. My team and I want to create joy and offer new perspectives and an appreciation of life for people living with, going through, or who have a loved one who has been through cancer.”
Fire and Ice will be held from 6.30pm on Saturday 10 August and will include a night of entertainment, featuring aerial artists, fire twirlers, fireworks and music.
Packages includes a cocktail on arrival and gourmet food and drinks throughout the evening. Single tickets are $185, with two tickets for $370 and a table of 10, $1,750.
