Lord Mayor Charitable Trust Gala Dinner
The Lord Mayor’s Charity Trust Gala Ball hosted their annual dinner with “There’s no place like Oz” theme on Saturday, 19th August. With ladies dazzling in emerald green and the gents donning their tuxedoes, it was an evening with the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City. Follow the yellow brick road! The auditorium sparkled emerald all over with the Wicked Witch of the West and Dorothy overlooking the crowd!
The evening opened with stars from The Regional Wicked Production. Ian Skippen emceed and was most entertaining and in character all night. The guests were joined by Lady Mayoress Anne Quirk and Lord Mayor Graham Quirk. Isabella Bevan, Zephyr Education was guest speaker of the night.
Then there was…….the Enchanted Apples of Oz, Wicked Chicken of the West and Aunty Elm’s Cruller, the menu certainly lived up to its theme!
The evening came ALIVE with bidders battling it out during the live auction. Guests donated generously on the night. The proceeds helped charities all over Brisbane and the well-being of vulnerable members of the Brisbane community. Every cent donated to the Trust goes to assisting people with disability, homelessness, mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, trauma, abuse or neglect.
Rare networking opportunities were exchanged amongst leaders and prominent local businesses who came together knowing they made a difference to Brisbane city. The Wicked Soloists & Savvy had guests dancing into the night. Where to next year?
