Couture For A Cause – **POSTPONED**

Due to unforeseen circumstances we will be postponing our Couture for a Cause Cocktail function to 2017.

Please stay tuned for next year’s bigger and brighter event!

 

 

The Cause

Every day in Australia, eight babies are born with a congenital heart condition and every week, four little lives are lost to the condition. HeartKids is there to support the families through their HeartKid journey.

Our Values

Every day, HeartKids cares for amazing children, teens, young adults and families at a time when they need it most. Talented and dedicated staff are involved in their treatment and support, together with a wide range of individuals who are determined to make a real difference to the future of HeartKids.

Many of the children we support have long term, life threatening illnesses. HeartKids provides direct support, understanding and information to these children and their families, and continues to assist them throughout their lives as they experience the many challenges and milestones that are typical of a Heart kids journey.

Why We Do What We Do

HeartKids WA believes that well-informed and supported families are better able to cope with the day-to-day care of their child and management of the condition. We find that many of the questions and needs they have are not medical in nature. You can find out more about HeartKids through our website, heartkidswa.org.au.

The Event

The inaugural Couture for a Cause will be held on Saturday 29 October 2016 in the Government House Ballroom. Catching the attention of fashionistas, Perthonalities and community members, this exclusive fashion fundraiser showcases the best in local fashion.A top-class line up will take to the runway and allow its guests to be dazzled by the amazing fashion design talent here in Western Australia.

Guests will come together in the Government House Ballroom for an evening of sophistication, exquisite canapes and beverages, live entertainment and the Couture for a Cause fashion parade featuring the collections of some of the most talented designers known locally.

In addition to raising funds, the Couture for a Cause is also a unique marketing opportunity for the many businesses which support this fundraising event through sponsorship, the donation of goods and services for auction and raffle items; and assistance in the organisation of the Couture for a Cause.

In 2016, we will endeavour to extend our event coverage beyond that of our guests through the use of multiple pathways.
