Adolescent and Young Adults Hospice Inaugural Black Tie Gala Dinner 2019

  • Museum of Contemporary Art Australia 140 George Street The Rocks, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

Hosted by James Griffin MP, Member for Manly and Splash of Colour Gala Dinner, come and enjoy an evening at one of the world's most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art. 

Join for the Inaugural Black Tie Gala Dinner in support of Australia's first Adolescent and Young Adults Hospice, to be built on the former Manly Hospital site on tranquil North Head in Manly, NSW. 

On arrival at the Museum of Contemporary Art, guests will enjoy drinks and canapes on the terrace with views to the Sydney Opera House, followed by a three course dinner from Sydney's top providores matched with fine wines.  

A historic, unique venue:

The historic MCA Foundation Hall with its seven-metre high ceilings will be exclusively staged for the night by renowned Australian Creative Director, Al Weekes.  

Live music will entertain guests alongside fundraising activities including a live and silent auction. 

Why this event is so important:

Young adults diagnosed with a terminal illness should be able to live with dignity and independence. Some people will come to stay at the Hospice during the final stage of their illness, and others will come for respite. 

The Hospice will provide the best possible quality of life and 24/7 support for young people and be a place of tranquility and respite for their carers and families from across New South Wales.

The evening will raise funds to support the construction of the Hospice and employ a full time 'Hospice Volunteer Co-Ordinator' for three years.
