The event held on Saturday, July 29, aimed to raise much needed funds to help find cures for childhood diseases.
Channel Seven star Edwina Bartholomew hosted the evening at the Australian Rural Education Centre.
Doctor Brett Tully from the CMRI explained to the audience ProCan, a database that will mean doctors can effectively narrow down the best type of currently available treatment to target a cancer patient’s individual diagnosis.
Over the next five years, scientists will analyse all types of cancer to develop a library of information to advance scientific discovery and enhance clinical treatment worldwide.
The Mudgee committee described the generosity of the community as “overwhelming and greatly appreciated”.
