Refunds: There is no refund for this event as it’s a fund-raiser.

We’re fundraising to assist Steve Marijanich, a Perth photographer and an outstanding mate to many local photographers. Steve was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 (advanced) lung cancer and while he is undergoing very stringent chemotherapy, is unable to work. This puts a big hole in the daily family finances and we are trying to help out.

Steve is an active part of the Perth photographic community; he is a member of the GEM Camera Club in Kalamunda and has helped many local photographers.

We hope that by fundraising, we can help plug in some of these holes and help Steve and his wife, Kym, and their boys get by. We are hoping that Steve’s treatment will extend the time he has with his family.

If you’re unable to attend this event, you can contribute your support to Steve Marijanich and his family by donating to the Go Fund Me account that has been set up by his friend. To do this, simply click here.
