Frankston South’s Donna Bradley-Robinson will bring a touch of red to the Mornington Racecourse in May when she hosts a special fundraising event supporting research into multiple sclerosis and support services for people living with the disease.

The 51-year-old will stage the inaugural Scarlet Cup on May 29 and funds raised will support the MS Ambassador program, MS Support Services, MS Connect programs and new MS research projects. It is a cause close to the former police officer’s heart – she has been living with MS for 35 years. Ms Bradley-Robinson was diagnosed at the age of 29 after experiencing symptoms since she was 16 years old. She was forced to give up policing in 2010 as her condition worsened and she now raises funds to support people living with MS. She is also raising funds to bring a special art program for people with MS to the Mornington Peninsula.

The Scarlet Cup is gathering momentum and shaping up as a gala event with Channel 9 ‘Postcards’ presenter Brodie Harper – born and raised on the Mornington Peninsula – confirmed as host, local judges locked in for Fashions on the Field, silent and live auctions planned, a Calcutta horse race, a raffle and more. Scarlet Cup guests will enjoy local food and wine on the day. Bradley-Robinson’s dress, makeup and hair are all being done by Mornington Peninsula small businesses and she will auction off her red silk 1950s vintage couture gown and matching millinery on the day. “I’ll be live auctioning the dress and hat to guests,” she said.

Multiple sclerosis is an incurable, chronic, and often disabling disease that randomly attacks and scars the protective insulation that surrounds the nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord. The progress, severity and symptoms vary and symptoms range from tingling and numbness to paralysis and blindness.

The Scarlet Cup is at the Mornington Racecourse on Sunday, May 29, 12noon – 5pm. Tickets cost $120 each, or $1100 for a table of 10. Dress is race or lounge attire with a touch of red. Full details at www.thescarletcup.com.au
