Rapunzel at Government House

Remember our charity performance of Rapunzel from 11 February? The star of the play, Nicolette Suttor, raised more than $10,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation by shaving off her almost ankle-length hair.

We are a little late in sharing the news, but we wanted to let you know about Rapunzel’s (Nicolette’s) attendance at a very special event. To celebrate her success in raising money for blood cancer research, she was feted at an award ceremony at Government House (Sydney, 21 July).

Look at the difference in her hair now! (fantastic comparisons on the National Library’s facebook post). She is with the Governor of NSW (David Hurley AC), and her cousin Denise.

Nicolette (Rapunzel) was one of the high-ranking fundraisers and her Greatest Shave campaign had the largest outreach (family, friends, ABC radio, Canberra Times, twitter, facebook). We mentioned some of the media coverage in a previous post. She received a special mention at the award ceremony for her achievements.

Thank you to everyone for your support of the Rapunzel play, and most importantly, raising funds for this important medical research and family support.
