What a night!

in News

The Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s gala fundraising event, Starry Starry Night 2019, was a resounding success, raising a massive $227,000 – all to help keep children safe from violence and bullying.

This year’s Starry Starry Night was a very different affair from that in the past. It was more intimate, with more emphasis on our work in the care and anti-bullying areas.

Held at the magnificent Forum Melbourne, Starry had a 1920s twist.

Hosted again by Foundation Ambassador, Melissa Doyle AM, and Rob Mills, around 350 guests were entertained by Rob Mills’ band, Swing on This, as well as performances from State School Spectacular.

Thanks to our fabulous sponsors, Paspaley, NAB, Richmond Football Club, PEXA and SHK and thanks to all our wonderful guests for making a night to remember!
