Businesswoman braves head shave to raise $100k for cancer research
A Sydney businesswoman who hopes to raise $100,000 for cancer research is calling on the support of Sydney’s small business community to help her reach her fundraising target.
The 50-year-old will give up her hair in support of awareness and research into ovarian cancer and to honour a promise made to a friend who lost her battle with the disease last year.
“I am doing this now as it is around the first anniversary of Barbara’s death,” Ms McConville said.
“It’s taken me this long to come to terms with the promise I made her. I said I would do a head-shave event to raise money for research so that other kids like her son Daniel would not be left without a mother.”
Ms McConville will have her head shaved at a meeting of business owners who are members of the global business networking organisation called BNI (http://www.bni.com.au/
The organisation has numerous chapters throughout Sydney, including the All About Business (http://www.bniallaboutbusiness.bnisite.com/
“I am hoping Sydney business owners, particularly those involved in the BNI network, will dig deep to help me raise this money which is so desperately needed,” Ms McConville said.
Ms McConville will have her head shaved next Thursday at 7am at the All About Business meeting at the Pavilion Restaurant, Art Gallery Road, Sydney.
