And don't forget that it is open to all family and friends, so bring them along to celebrate Pat's legacy.
The late Pat Farry was a Rural General Practitioner based out of Queenstown who was passionate about Rural Medicine. He devoted his life to improving rural education and in 2007 established the very successful Rural Immersion Programme for medical students of the University of Otago. Pat passed away in 2009 and the following year a trust was established in his memory to further develop and maintain his vision. Since 2011, the Pat Farry Rural Health Education Trust has provided 20 scholarships and grants to medical student recipients to pursue rural health educational experiences overseas.

Noisy gatherings of family and friends around a table laden with Lebanese cuisine are a special memory for many who knew Pat. "We only know 10 recipes but we do them really well" was how Pat described his family's expertise in preparing the always delicious fare. Liane Farry, Pat's niece, and her son Samir established Gemmayze St Restaurant in 2016 and it has fast become one of the hottest restaurants in Auckland.
To celebrate Pat's legacy and fundraise for the Trust's work, come and join Sue Farry and other Pat Farry Trust Trustees at the 2018 Pat Farry Trust Fundraiser Dinner featuring authentic Lebanese family cuisine at Gemmayze St Restaurant, St Kevin's Arcade in Auckland from 7:00 pm, Friday 6 April. In attendance will also be Pat Farry Trust GODZone team members Gary Nixon and Mark Smith who will be sharing some of the team's epic GODZone experiences after completing the 2018 event in early March.
If you are attending the National Rural Health Conference you can book the Pat Farry Trust Dinner via the conference website or alternatively you can book here. Sue Farry and the Trustees invite all supporters of the Trust including family and friends.
