Paul and Sharon’s wedding day gift

Paul and Sharon decided to share their special day and in lieu of wedding gifts request that a donation be made to the Mater Foundation .

Contributing to finding a cure for cancer has been close to their hearts for many years, with Paul having lost both his father and mother to this devastating disease and more recently a close friend’s beautiful teenage daughter. Family and friends were incredibly supportive of Paul and Sharon wish and surpassed the goal of $10,000 and raising over an incredible $21,000 for cancer research!

I want to register!

Our wedding day is a day filled with love, friendships and special moments. We have chosen to mark this special time with making a difference and fundraise for a cause close to our hearts. We have asked our guests rather than bring wedding gifts to support with a contribution to the great work Mater is doing spearheading the research into a cure for melanoma cancer.
