Jeans for Genes Day

Jeans for Genes Day

We would like to invite you to our morning tea to raise money for Jeans for Genes day.

As you may already know, we are supporting Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) by participating in Jeans for Genes Day!

Every dollar raised helps scientists at CMRI discover treatments and cures, to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.

Please take a look at our fundraising page: http:// www.jeansforgenes.org.au/ fundraiser/the-centre-1

It’s so easy to make a donation and will only take a few minutes!

We really appreciate your support in the fight against childhood disease.

Details of the event:

  • Monday 31st July
  • 10:30am in our Reception Area (17 Chisholm Street, Wangaratta)

So if you are in the neighbourhood we would love to see you there and strongly encourage to double denim for the day and attend our lovely morning tea.

There will be a prize for the most denim – the winner in 2015 had quadruple denim.

Where Are They Now

Michelle Fusco

Michelle studied CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support at Broadford, she liked that it was close to home and she wanted Face to Face classroom lessons.

She found work before she even finished the course and The Centre was flexible to enable her to complete her studies around her work schedule.
