An Afternoon with the Helfgotts: Shining a Light on Carers

An Afternoon with the Helfgotts: Shining a Light on Carers was a corporate awareness-raising event held on Sunday 17 August 2014 at the Intercontinental Hotel Sydney. It featured world-renowned pianist David Helfgott and his wife and carer Gillian, along with reporter, presenter and TV personality, Chris Bath. Chris shared her personal story and led an engaging and insightful conversation with Gillian and carers in the audience. Guests were then treated to a private piano recital by David Helfgott. The event aimed to raise awareness of carer issues, especially in the workplace.
