Special dinner for Caritas Christi

04 Nov 2019

Mrs Jeannie Pratt AC, hosted a very successful fundraising dinner at her home ‘Raheen’, together with Sir James Gobbo AC, Patron of the St Vincent’s Caritas Christi Hospice Building Project in Kew. 

Guests gathered to learn more about the history of Caritas Christi and the role the Hospice has played in improving provision of palliative care across the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, through its in-home service. 

The old Caritas building, which is located next door to ‘Raheen’, has recently been demolished. The early excavation works, complete with the new building, are due to open in 2021. The Hospice will operate out of the St Vincent’s Hospital in Fitzroy while the building work is underway. 

Our thanks to Mrs Jeannie Pratt AC for so kindly opening her beautiful home. We are also extremely grateful for the generosity and loyalty of the members of the Order of Malta. They are major supporters of the fundraising campaign and hosted many of the tables at this special dinner.
