The Annual Mittagong Ball, 2014
On Saturday 6 September 2014, Dr Silly Billy and Dr Smarty Pantz made their way down to the Annual Mittagong Ball. Both dressed and ready for a fabulous evening, Dr Smarty Pantz wore his best red striped pants and Dr Silly Billy practiced his ukulele in preparation for the big event!
The Clown Doctors had a lovely evening of fun, laughter and music with everyone at the ball.
Thank you Paul and Jan Stevens-King for hosting another great night this year!
Miles for Smiles Tasmania, 2014
Cadbury celebrated the 9th year of the iconic Cadbury Miles for Smiles Tasmania, a fundraising event in aid of charity Clown Doctors. Over the life of the event $960,000 has been raised and this year they are hoping to hit the 1 million dollar mark!
All the money raised from the Miles for Smiles event goes directly to funding Clown Doctor Rounds across the state of Tasmania.
The event launched on Monday 24 March 2014 at Burnie Hospital and collections points were located in Latrobe, Launceston, Campbell Town, Rosny and Hobart. The event culminated at Royal Hobart Hospital on Saturday 29 March where a cheque was presented to the Clown Doctors on behalf of all the kind community and corporate donations.
April was Smile Month at Clown Central and the Commonwealth Bank!
Commonwealth Bank helped the Clown Doctors deliver more fun on Smile Day, Tuesday 1 April 2014. Commonwealth Bank aimed to raise $300,000 this year, which would generate an extra 30,000 smiles to the bedsides of sick children around Australia.
Smile Day is a special day in which you can help the curve of a smile set everything straight for a sick child in hospital.
You can get involved next time by organising your own Smile Day fundraising event or activity. Friends, colleagues and family raised awareness and support this year for the Clown Doctors in their local community, by wearing and sharing a smile! Thank you to all that participated and helped us spread more smiles!
