Love Your Sister Cocktail Dinner

Love Your Sister, Samuel Johnson, Wild SaffronBefore this year, Samuel Johnson was most commonly recognised for his acting roles in dramas such as The Secret Life of Us, Underbelly II and Rush. Since leaving Federation Square in Melbourne on a unicycle earlier this month, things have changed.

The Australian actor has taken on the challenge to unicycle around Australia to promote “breast awareness” amongst women and raise $1 million for cancer research. Samuel’s extraordinary mission was motivated by the diagnosis of breast cancer in his sister Connie. Connie, a 36 year-old mother of two young boys is terminally ill with breast cancer and has a dying wish to leave a legacy of breast awareness.

To support Samuel and Connie’s fundraising efforts, a cocktail dinner is being held at Wild Saffron on Monday, March 4 at 7 pm. Tickets are $30, with $10 from every ticket going to the Love Your Sister project. Come along to Wild Saffron to hear Samuel’s story and support a great cause.

For any further questions please contact Emily on  0411 478 695 or emilyelkhoury@bigpond.com.
Bookings essential – Wild Saffron 8842 4255
Tickets must be purchased by Saturday 2nd March

Check out the Love Your Sister facebook page.

If you have boobs, have a sister or know someone affected by cancer, then this is one event you should not miss.
