2019 Gala Dinner Thank You

FRIDAY 5 April 2019 |  LUNA PARK SYDNEY

Our sincerest thanks to the generosity of our 2019 Gala Dinner guests, volunteers, Gold Sponsor CBRE, and Silver Sponsors Multiplex for making this event a success.

Our sincerest thanks to our generous 2019 Gala Dinner guests, volunteers and sponsors for making this event a success. Our annual Gala Dinner was held on Friday 5th April in the stunning Luna Park Grand Ballroom. With over 200 guests enjoying the fun-filled evening, we raised much needed funds to enable us to continue our valuable work in the community.

A big thank you to our Gold Sponsor CBRE, and Silver Sponsor Multiplex for their generous contributions on the night. We would also like to thank all of our prize sponsors as well as our wine and beer sponsors. An event of this scale could not be successful without the support of everyone who attended the night as well as the generosity of individuals and organisations who made donations or volunteered their time.

Guests were treated to a spectacular performance by Taldy’s former client, Rapper D Minor, who gave insight into his troubled childhood and experiences with violence, homelessness and overall life struggles. D Minor performed his latest internationally recognised single ‘Concrete Pillow’ which features Alli Simpson.

A powerful and moving speech was heard first-hand from an ex-client who spent time in Juvenile Detention. By the time he had finished sharing his story, the room was on their feet cheering him on. He said: ‘over the last two years the only consistency I had in my life was through Taldumande; particularly from my Case Manager, who has supported me through a tough but rewarding journey … I felt recognised, heard, valued. I was supported every day to make a new plan for my life and for my future … I’m now well on my way into completing a Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping which I’ve enjoyed doing – I’m quite good with numbers.’

Tears, laughter, great entertainment, good food and wine was had by all.

A heart-felt thank you goes out to all the sponsors, volunteers, entertainers and staff at Luna Park for making the annual Gala Dinner a successful evening.
