Dry July is over! It’s time to raise your glasses and celebrate your ‘dry’ accomplishment.
But it’s not exactly ALL over – you still have until midnight August 31st to gather donations from friends and family who saw you ‘suffer’ through a dry month! Or maybe it’s time to donate a couple of Golden Tickets to yourself for those weak moments where you gave into a drink… Remember, all donations will go a long way in helping to improve cancer patient comfort and care at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) and three regional hospitals across South Australia: Mount Gambier Hospital, Whyalla Hospital and Port Lincoln Hospital.

The Hospital Research Foundation is thrilled to announce that it is the successful South Australian beneficiary of the Dry July fundraising program again in 2012; with all funds raised going to cancer patient care at TQEH!
Dry July is a nationwide fundraising campaign where participants bravely sign up to abstain from alcohol in the month of July and gain donations from friends and family for their courageous dry efforts. All funds raised go towards improving comfort and care for cancer patients in hospitals across the nation.
Since 2009, funds raised by participants in South Australia have gone into improving the cancer wards at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Over the years an astounding $238,627.81 has been raised, providing numerous benefits including decoration of the waiting rooms, new tv’s and waiting room chairs, children’s toys and books, meditation CD’S, laptops with internet access for patients and 13 comfortable treatment chairs which are due for delivery in May this year.
“We tender for the SA beneficiary spot every year, so the news that THRF will again be able to run Dry July in our state is just fantastic,” said THRF CEO Paul Flynn.
“We are looking forward to further improving comfort and care for cancer patients and their families at TQEH.”
“We hope that everyone will support this great initiative and go Dry in July!,” he said.
