Sept. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- MELBOURNE, VIC – 13 September 2012 – Whilst celebrating an American holiday tradition, The American Women’s Auxiliary, in its 81st year raising funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital, will host an anticipated 1,250 guests at its upcoming annual family and fundraising Halloween Extravaganza.

The children’s Halloween Extravaganza 2012 will be held on Sunday 28 October from 2pm to 5pm at the Sports Cover Area, Elsternwick Cricket Ground. Tickets are $10 for adults and $25 for children. The event aims to raise $20,000 to benefit the Children’s Bioethics Centre, the hospital’s latest initiative on cutting edge research and education programs and a major focus for the foundation.

The celebration started in 2007 initially as a family and social event strictly for members of the organisation. Due to great success in the following years, it was converted into a fundraising effort and opened to the general public in 2011, raising over $11,000 for the Children’s Bioethics Centre. This year the event features children’s entertainment, games and contests, as well as the customary trick or treating.

“The Halloween Extravaganza event is a great platform for our organisation to come together in celebrating and sharing our cultural heritage whilst making a significant impact on the local community through The Royal Children’s Hospital,” said Tiffany Lucas, president of The American Women’s Auxiliary. “Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of others and this event will do just that,” she added.

Founded in 1931, The American Women's Auxiliary was established with the primary objective of providing fundraising and volunteer services to The Royal Children's Hospital. Over the years, the organisation has donated over $4 million to the hospital. Members of The American Women's Auxiliary are a mixture of permanent and temporary residents joined in their commitment to improving the quality of life for children and their families associated with The Royal Children’s Hospital.
The organisation also provides social support to Americans and ‘Friends of America’ through social groups and events that celebrate and share in American cultural heritage.
