This is the winner of the hotly contested pearl necklace raffle at the Breathing New Life Conference that has just concluded at Alice Springs.
Bev Davis of Bentley Hospital won the $5000 first prize donated by Panda Pearls, who were very popular exhibitors at the trade stands. I'm sure there were many pearl adorned midwives and doctors returning home today!
Proceeds from the two raffles raised a substantial amount of funds for the Rhodanthe Lipsett fund of the Australian College of Midwives, which provides financial support for Indigenous women to study midwifery.
Congratulations Bev. More BNL news soon.
