This red carpet black tie charity gala will be hosted at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont and will see celebrity and VIP guests enjoy a gourmet three-course dinner, select premium beverages as well as entertainment and surprises for all present.
SHINE & DINE was founded by Kouture Productions’ Sharon Melhem in 2013 and is one of Make-A-Wish Australia’s biggest fundraising events in the calendar year.
“Every day, six families around Australia receive the news that their child has a life-threatening medical condition. That’s 2,000 families each year in need of a vital wish; four times the number of families we’re currently able to reach,” says Make-A-Wish CEO, Gerard Menses.
“We believe in the healing power of a wish. We take each child on a carefully designed, unique journey where they anticipate and experience their most cherished wish coming true. This journey gives these really sick kids and teens hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
“We’re so excited to have the support of Shine & Dine again in 2016, as funds raised will help us continue to grant even more wishes to very sick kids and teens all over the country.”
Melhem said she was hoping to raise more money in 2016 than she ever has before:
“My ultimate aim is to raise much needed funds for Make-A-Wish so that they can continue to grant the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses around Australia. I am confident that 2016 will be the year that SHINE & DINE knocks it out of the park for Make A Wish- this year’s even is shaping up to be the best ever!” said Melhem.
“Make-A-Wish does incredible work granting over hundreds of wishes every year. We are pulling out all the stops to not only grow awareness for SHINE & DINE and Make A Wish, but to ensure that our guests and supporters have an unforgettable and magical experience.”
