Back in Melbourne for todays job.
It was just a few weeks ago that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were at the hospital visiting some of the young patients, and today saw the media back there for the announcement of the construction of the $250 million hospital getting underway.
Victorian premier Dennis Napthine turned the first sod in front of the assembled media at the site of the new hospital this morning, with the promise of 230 new beds by 2016 in the new state of the art facility.
The majority of the funding has been granted but I’m sure the hospital would be grateful to receive donations to make this facility truly great for all those that will make use of it. Donate at http://newchildrenshospital.org/home-mch
We had just finished a corporate function at a venue near the Crown conference centre and were contemplating dinner and a couple of refreshers, when we received the call to cover the Shane Warne Foundation Fundraiser at Club 23 Crown Towers.
Shane Warne with his pal Mick Molloy were hosting a Full Moon Party at Club 23, Crown which was super convenient!
Anyway, here is a pic of Shane with his fundraising shirt shortly before he welcomed all his guests.
