Guess who’s coming to the 2013 Mother’s May Lunch!

Grab your girlfriends and join Belinda & the team from ABB on Friday May 10th at the National Wine Centre as we raise much needed funds for the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation. Enjoy sparkling wine on arrival (bubbles, yum!), followed by a delightful two-course lunch, complimented with tasty Wirra Wirra Wines, all hosted by 5AA’s Belinda Heggen.

This year ABB are a proud partner of the Mother’s May Lunch and as such are offering tickets to join us on the ABB tables for an afternoon of laughter, fun & time to invest back in ME as we celebrate women, and say ‘thank you’ to our mums while helping to raise much needed funds. 

I’m sure we’re all touched in one way or another by the wonderful work of the Women’s & Children’s Hospital and look forward to supporting such a valuable cause to help touch thousands of families each year.

In 2013, their very special guests will be:-

  • Debora Krizak – accomplished performer and published author, born and bred in Adelaide
  • Mrs Liz Scarce – wife of His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR, Governor of South Australia
  • Gill Hicks – Adelaide born International hero and inspirational mum, founder of London-based not-for-profit M.A.D for Peace, a motivational speaker, author, curator and trustee for several cultural organizations.

Clinical evidence suggests that creating a child-friendly environment and providing distraction through play and recreation, can not only lower anxiety and pain but also improve recovery rates. This means that through play, recreation and fun, children feel better and get well faster.

The WCH Foundation has set up The Kids FUNd to help the Hospital feel more like home for the child patients at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Gifts from just a few dollars to a few thousand dollars make a big difference to sick kids.

The Kids FUNd works with Hospital staff and play therapists to purchase the things they need to provide entertainment, distraction, play therapy and recreation for sick children. It may be crayons, pencils or art and craft supplies. It could be games and books or a teddy bear to cuddle. It also includes projects like the Pediatric Emergency Department – complete with bright wall graphics and aquarium, to the Nuclear Medicine Department’s special distraction graphics for young patients undergoing procedures.

Tickets for the lunch are $95 each.  If you’d like to join us on our ABB tables please email Belinda at to arrange your tickets.


Thanks to Luncheon Partners for their valuable support!

  • 10 Parenting Rules – and I broke them all

    Confession. I was one self-righteous, know-it-all bitch Before Children [BC]. It’s true. I knew it ALL. Anything wrong with a kid? It’s their mum’s fault. Sometimes their dad’s. But mainly mum… because she CHOSE the dad after all. In my, far from humble, opinion parents were entirely responsible for everything their kids did, thought, said […]
