About The Bathers' Gold Lunch
The Bathers’ Gold Lunch is one of the most anticipated events on Sydney’s social calendar and typically sells out within 24 hours.
This is the 15th year the lunch has been hosted by Bathers’ Pavilion on beautiful Balmoral Beach. Come and indulge in champagne on the terrace followed by an exquisite three-course lunch in the restaurant, and a superb beach view. What better way to spend an afternoon than sharing a delicious meal with close friends in a stunning setting, whilst raising critical funds for sick kids living with cystic fibrosis.
Why we need your help
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening genetic condition affecting Australian children.
Every four days, a baby is diagnosed with CF.
One in 25 parents unknowingly carry the gene.
Each year, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick cares for around 180 children with CF. Some will be receiving treatment for the first time; others will be well-known to the team due to the life-long care they’ve needed for this incurable condition.
The difference you can make
Twenty years ago, children born with CF would only live until five years of age. But thanks to medical breakthroughs and pioneering research, patients now have an average life expectancy of 38. Our great hope is that - thanks to the research and treatments you help fund - children now living with CF will survive and thrive well into old age.
In 2021, The Bathers’ Gold Lunch will continue to raise vital funds to support the young patients living with this lifelong chronic illness. Together, let’s get behind the Hospital’s pioneering miCF research team, so that they can make the next life-changing medical breakthrough.
Your support will help improve the lives of kids living with cystic fibrosis now, and for generations to come.
