Recently we published an article about Mark de Bont from Three Little Ducks in Bellerive. We spoke of his quest to run the Paris Marathon to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation. Now Think Tasmania would like to shine the spotlight on Judi Adams, the fundraising dynamo behind Lumin8 Hobart: Pink Diamonds Black Pearls. With a focus on breast cancer research, and hosted at the Henry Jones Art Hotel, the event is sure to appeal to many readers.

Lumin8 Hobart: Judi Adams on a Mission

Judi Adams is a whirlwind when it comes to the fight against cancer. The National Breast Cancer Foundation consider her one of their most valued fundraisers in fact. Proving one person can make a difference, Judi has dedicated much time to the cause in memory of a close friend, who lost their battle with the disease.

Judi has worked tirelessly since 2004 coordinating events, and Lumin8 Hobart is just one of many. Her ethos as a volunteer for the National Breast Cancer Foundation saw her nominated as a Telstra Awards finalist in 2012.

Each year, people from Hobart and the wider Tasmanian community show their support, help raise awareness and much-needed funds for breast cancer. Tickets are still available for Lumin8 Hobart 2013 and the cost includes finger food, beer and wine, sweet treats from Ultimate Lolly Banquet, fashion previews and substantial giveaways from Estee Lauder.
