The momentous occasion was marked on the 25th January with a birthday morning tea and a visit from former Randwick Mayor and Member for Coogee Bruce Notley-Smith who presented Eva with a special congratulatory letter.

Eva also received letters from Her Majesty the Queen, Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Governor-General Ms Quentin Bryce, Governor of New South Wales Marie Bashir, Premier of NSW Barry O’Farrell, Member for Wentworth Malcolm Turnbull and a Mazel Tov Certificate from David Freeman AM, President of Montefiore Home.

Eva was born in Budapest Hungary and throughout her time in Australia has had a full life filled with family and friends.

Eva’s birthday was celebrated with a huge birthday cake and as it was on the eve of Australia day a performance by the Bunyip Bush Band. Family, Residents and staff sang along to familiar tunes and enjoyed the recognition of all of the Home’s January birthdays. Eva is a much-loved member of the Home and in the three years she has been here it is clear Eva has made very many special friends.
As part of our commitment to Quality of Life of our Residents, Montefiore Home celebrates birthdays and special occasions and encourages families to join.
