The restaurant group that operates Aqua Dining, Ripples and LuMi has set itself the challenge of raising $50,000 for women’s cancer.
The Sydney Restaurant Group, headed up by restaurateur Bill Drakopoulos, will host its Spring Series, with 100 percent of all ticket sales and money raised going to Cancer Council NSW.
The group has been running the event for the past eight years, and this year hopes to raise $50,000 through three Pink Ribbon events.
Aqua Dining (19 October), Ripples Milsons Point (20 October) and Ripples Chowder Bay (21 October) will each host a champagne breakfast, where an auction and raffles will also take place.
Drakopoulos’ support for Cancer Council NSW stems from his own personal experience where at the age of 27, he was diagnosed with skin cancer. He has since made a full recovery, however both his mother and brother died from cancer, both aged 47.
“Being part of a community, we have a moral responsibility to offer assistance to a worthy cause. I can think of no more worthy cause than that of Cancer Council,” he said.
