Inaugural Annual Gala Dinner


The Foundation’s inaugural Gala Fundraising Dinner and Auction was held at Curzon Hall on 3rd November 2001. Response was overwhelming, the Ballroom at Curzon Hall being filled to capacity.

Generous support was received from P & O Cruises, Waldorf Apartment Hotel Canberra, sporting celebrities including Adam Gilchrist and John Eales, and many other generous donors. Bill Gilbert performed the duties of Master of Ceremonies very professionally. Mayne Health Laverty Pathology provided significant support in selling raffle tickets, supporting the dinner and generously donating $20,000.

Sincere gratitude to all the wonderful supporters who attended the Foundation’s inaugural dinner, the generous donors, Bill Gilbert and Mayne Health Laverty Pathology.
