This year’s event raised more than $17,000 for Kind Cuts for Kids through ticket sales, a silent auction and general donations. General Manager, Mr. Clinton Farley believes the success of the event can be credited to two important factors; the expertise of the culinary team lead by Executive Chef Leigh Robbins and the passion which is displayed through the food journey they create. The other being the impact that the Melbourne based charity has within the global community, united with the generosity of those attending the event. “We are truly grateful to Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne for their support. The amount raised will allow Kind Cuts for Kids to complete a further 50 operations for children in need of medical procedures in various countries, which otherwise would not occur. The value of the training for local doctors during the visits will be priceless”, said Dr. Paddy Dewan, Founder and Chairman of Kind Cuts for Kids. Kind Cuts for Kids focuses on improving the lives of children in developing countries by conducting a range of surgical procedures which are not readily available in that country, while educating local health care professionals. Mr. Farley said that he was delighted with the support and generosity of attendees and sponsors on the evening. “Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne is committed to ensuring that we play an active part in our community.
