Greek-Australians Donate Heavily to Children's Hospital Foundation

  • Written by 

Greek-Australians hailing from Queensland donated a monumental amount of money for the Children's Hospital Foundation, during the Channel Nine Children's Hosptial Telethon in Brisbane.

The raised revenue totaled more than $9.2 million dollars and will directly help the new Lady Cilento Children's Hospital that will be the biggest children's medical and research center in the region, according to Neos Kosmos.  It is scheduled to open on November 20th.

The Coffee Club Public Relations Director John Lazarou spearheaded the telethon, while The Coffee Club Telethon Ball was held the same night and generated $180,000 in charity donations. Over the last twenty years, The Coffee Club has fundraised for the Children's Hospital Donation, gaining over $8 million dollars.
