Hope for Mariah fundraiser to be held in Victoria

·

The Hope for Mariah fundraising event, organised by the Enosi Association, will be held at the Stars International Reception in Preston, Victoria on Saturday, March 4.

8-year-old Mariah was born premature at 23 weeks and 5 days, weighing just over 500grams. 10 days after she was born, baby Mariah picked up an E. coli superbug, leading to a bleed on a part of her brain where she would develop Dystonic Cerebral Palsy.

Mariah also lost her hearing completely and has one cochlear implant on the left ear.

Since 2019, Mariah has been through major surgeries, one of which left her fighting for her life. She also contracted COVID-19 in the hospital and was diagnosed with a kidney stone.

This Saturday’s fundraising event will provide financial support for Mariah’s therapy, mobility and accessibility equipment.

Guests will be entertained with music and bands, such as DJ Dion, Spasta Band and Leventies Band. The event will have traditional Greek dancing and an appearance from Elvis to the T, as well as face painting and a magic show for the children.

Tickets for adults are $120 and include a five-course meal, soft drinks, wine and beer. Tickets for children are $45.00. Book your tickets here: Try Booking.
