The University of Adelaide has launched the Robinson Foundation at a Gala Dinner on the lawns of Government House on Saturday 13 February.

The Robinson Foundation will support the work of the University of Adelaide's Robinson Institute, which focuses on life-giving research into the causes and cures of major diseases, as well as preventing illness across generations.

The event was hosted by University of Adelaide Vice-Chancellor and President Professor James McWha, in the presence of His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce, Governor of South Australia, and Mrs Liz Scarce. At the dinner, Professor McWha welcomed Governor and Mrs Scarce as joint patrons of the Robinson Foundation.

Ms Cherylee Harris was Master of Ceremonies for the inaugural event and Chris Jarmer catered to the 250 guests.

The event marked the first fundraising activity for the newly created Foundation and aimed to raise awareness of the life-giving research undertaken at the University by the Robinson Institute.
