In 1963, the NeuroSurgical Research Foundation was formed by Dr Trevor Dinning and Prof Donald Simpson with the objective of funding research into the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease or malfunction of the brain, spine and nerves. We invite you to join us for our NRF Sparkling 60th Celebration, our most dazzling event yet! We want to celebrate you and all that you’ve helped us achieve. To mark the occasion we are launching an entirely new appeal, the NRF 60th Research Fund!

Patrick of Coonawarra’s founder, Patrick Tocaciu was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in 2011 and tragically passed away in 2013. The Winery is now run by his son, Luke Tocaciu, and has been a major contributor to the NRF over the last 10 years, donating over $40,000!
We are so grateful to the Tocaciu family for their incredible ongoing support, including participating in City-to-Bay, raising money through cellar door tastings, and donating wine for events and prizes.
