2018 Pink Silks Ladies & Tradies Night

By October 11, 2018 Silks News No Comments

Hey Ladies and Tradies!

Get yourselves ready for our charity auction night at the Hoey Moey on Saturday the 27thof October.

Tickets include three drink vouchers, finger food, lucky door prizes, entertainment, raffles, live auctions, and more! Come along to support the Pink Silks Trust and the Coffs Harbour Health Campus Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

This event has been nominated as our community fundraising event where we focus on the equipment and services needed by all members of our local population. This year, funds are being raised for the CHHC ICU who provide lifesaving services to our community. With increasing demand on the ICU in recent years, the unit is expanding to include an additional four ICU beds by the end of the year.

The ICU require specialised equipment to carry out their duties, which can often come at great cost. In order to assist them we are focussing on the purchase of a Prismaflex unit value at $60,000. Currently, the CHHC ICU has two Prismaflex units, however the increase in beds and therefore patients, means an additional unit would be both advantageous and crucial.

The Prismaflex System is a flexible, filter-based unit that can meet the demands of multiple treatments with a versatile platform able to be adapted according to patient needs. It is designed to mimic the body’s kidney function by pumping blood from the patient through a filter and back into the patient’s circulatory system.

Different therapies which can be used include:

  • Fluid removal
  • Heamofiltration
  • Therapeutic Plasma Exchange
  • Medication and toxin removal

We look forward to seeing you at Ladies and Tradies night! Spread the word so we can raise as much money as possible to get this vital equipment for our local ICU department and let’s have a cracking time!

Tickets are on sale now at the Hoey Moey.
