Smile Solutions is a proud supporter of the Bellevue Project. Bellevue Philanthropy was created by two women, Silla and Jody Allat, to raise funds for, and bring awareness to, organisations that they feel an affinity for.
“We are both mothers of four children; PANDA was the first charity on our list. We recognise how tough parenting is and appreciate the vital work that PANDA does within the community. Our aim is to further help PANDA’s work by increasing their financial support.”
The inaugural Winter Solstice Ladies Luncheon was held in 2011 in support of PANDA and the luncheon is now a much-anticipated annual event.
“As we both live in bayside Melbourne we wanted to support the hospital our children would be sent to in an emergency. The Monash Children’s is Victoria’s second-largest and Australia’s third-largest children’s hospital, dedicated to providing quality patient care for the children and families of the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne and beyond, right across Victoria.
“Our Oaks Day luncheon, in support of Monash Children’s, is an annual celebration of feminine elegance and the heritage of Ladies Day, one of the most popular race days of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, without having to go to the races!
”We have joined forces with Amalocal to bring the bayside community a twilight festival of stalls laden with local produce, meats, breads, dips, pestos, sauces, pasta, jams and chutneys.The Bayside Local Food Festival will be a wonderful opportunity to meet local farmers, producers and bakers and purchase fantastic fresh produce. The Festival will also raise funds for FareShare to help it continue to produce meals for those who struggle to feed themselves and to raise awareness of the magnitude of hunger and food insecurity around us.”
