Star Challenge for Endeavour Foundation’s Anniversary Gala
Guests at Endeavour Foundation’s 63rd Aniversary Gala are being challenged to light up the night, in keeping with this year’s theme of “Shooting for the Stars”.
The big night on Saturday June 21 will give guests the chance to be a ballroom star while enjoying great company, sumptuous food and drinks, and stella entertainment.
Brisbane’s Sofitel’s Ballroom Le Grand will dazzle for a celebration of the organisation’s 63 years of support for people with a disability.
Australian music star Daryl Braithwaite will take the evening to the stratosphere with chart topping hits, including The Horses. To keep guests moving in between sumptuous food, entertainment, auctions and raffles, Brisbane five-piece band The Accidents will blaze with their repertoire that is as wide as the night sky. Brisbane radio personalities Ian Skippen and Loretta Ryan will be the evening’s hosts, guiding guests through a three-course dinner, with beer, wine and soft drinks.
Gala goers could also take home something extra special from the evening. Auction items will include international holidays, unique experiences and stunning jewellery. The raffle prize list includes cooking classes, dinners, theatre tickets, and vouchers for jewellery and beauty treatments.
It will be a one night only opportunity to celebrate with glitz and glamour, while supporting a great cause. Tickets are $219 each or $2090 per table of 10, with all proceeds going to Endeavour Foundation’s Endowment Challenge Fund, which supports social inclusion projects for people with a disability and research aimed at improving society’s knowledge and understanding of disability.
