Swing, stars and big band glamour at Starry Starry Night 2013 gala ball

Starry Starry Night guests dug deep to raise more than $1 million to support The Alannah and Madeline Foundation at the Foundation's 16th annual gala fundraising ball at Palladium at Crown on Saturday 23 November, 2013.

More than 1,000 guests, including Chairman John Bertrand AM, Founding Patron Walter Mikac and some of Australia's biggest names in television, sport and entertainment came together for an evening of swing music and big band glamour to support The Alannah and Madeline Foundation's work keeping children safe from violence and bullying.

The evening was hosted by Channel 7's Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies, who also opened the night with an entertaining rendition of Sway, while many other celebrities stepped out of their comfort zone to perform on the Gatsby-themed stage. 

Highlights from the night included:

  • An epic performance of Frank Sinatra's New York, New York led by Andrew O'Keefe and Dancing with the Stars' hosts Daniel MacPherson and Edwina Bartholomew;
  • Dancing with the Stars judges Adam Garcia and Kym Johnson swapping judge's paddles for dancing shoes with a dance routine inspired by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers;
  • Home and Away's Lynne McGranger's take on AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long;
  • 11-year-old Beau Woodbridge (son of tennis star Todd) and television personality Gorgi Coghlan's emotional performance of Rainbow Connection;
  • Rhonda Burchmore's swing-inspired version of Lady Gaga's Born This Way was also a favourite among guests.

Host Larry Emdur said he thoroughly enjoyed co-hosting the night.

"Kylie and I have loved being a part of such a wonderful evening. It's a remarkable event, with fantastic entertainment, complemented by the generosity of the guests, who dig so deep to support the incredible work of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation," Larry Emdur said.

The Alannah and Madeline Foundation's CEO, Dr Judith Slocombe, was delighted with the fundraising result.

"It's been an amazing night. We are absolutely thrilled with the generosity of everyone who attended and supported this year's Starry Starry Night. The funds raised will go towards our valuable programs that help to keep children across Australia safe from violence and bullying," Judith said.
