Ms Australia Chinese Pageant – Sunday 21, May 2017

Ms Australia Chinese Pageant 2017

Over the past decade of tangible success and experience, The Miss Australia Chinese Pageant is recognized as the premier event of its kind within the Chinese communities in Australia. We celebrate strong and committed young ladies who are willing to represent the community as a goodwill ambassador, becoming a role model of today while strengthening our city for tomorrow.

Our goal is to raise funds that enable doctors and researchers in Westmead Medical Research Foundation to continually push the boundaries of medical innovation, while also broadening the scope and reach of treatments to fight against heart disease.

Your generous donations will tremendously help to support medical equipment, life-saving researches and the care of patients at Westmead Hospital and The Westmead Insitute for Medical Research.

In recognition of your support to Westmead Medical Research Foundation, thank you for your support and we are forever grateful.
