We are pleased to welcome back breakfast show host, and popular TV personality Karl Stefanovic for the second year, as he joins forces with Helen Kapalos, TV presenter and community activist to raise funds for childhood cancer research.

As Chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, Helen passionately advocates for equality in the multicultural sector and champions various community causes. Helen became a household name as presenter of Seven Network’s Today Tonight and Sunday Night shows, plus Network Ten’s News at Five. Helen’s extensive experience in philanthropic roles including Director at the Heart Foundation and Ambassador for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation make her the perfect host for The Million Dollar Lunch, which raises funds for the Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Karl Stefanovic is an Australian Gold Logie-winning television presenter. Thousands of Australians wake up to Karl first thing in the morning to get their daily scoop of news and entertainment, as host of Channel Nine’s Today show  to get their daily scoop of news and entertainment. With over 15 years’ experience in television and TV journalism across America, New Zealand and Australia, he has been at the forefront of both local and international news events – including the Oscars and the Golden Globes.
