As the night of the Mumbulla Foundation’s annual gala dinner draws closer, tickets to the event are selling out fast.
The main attraction of the evening will be guest speaker Peter FitzSimons who will entertain the crowd with his many and varied anecdotes.
Musical entertainment will be provided by local band Kitty Kat and the Band of Thieves.
Those who attend the Down South Jazz Club will be familiar with Kitty Kat, made up of Kristy Ellis on keyboard, John McVeity, bass, Conrad Mc Mullen, guitar, and John Fraser on drums.
Leading the band with her saxophone and lots of enthusiasm is Candy “Kitty” McVeity. They play a wide-ranging selection of music that will keep you dancing through the night.
The night couldn’t come together without the generous support of the foundation’ sponsors.
Bega Cheese is a major sponsor for the gala dinner, and supporting the event this year for the fifth time.
The support of Bega Cheese has had a huge impact on the success of the fundraising activities of the Mumbulla Foundation and has resulted in tens of thousands of dollars being raised for distribution to local community organisations.
“Bega Cheese as our principal sponsor has been a wonderful supporter of the Foundation, and all it undertakes in the community,” Mumbulla Foundation chairperson Gary Potts said.
“Without their generous assistance the annual Gala Dinner would not have been the success it has been. We thank them for their commitment.”
For further fundraising, there will be a charity auction at the gala dinner with great items to bid on, such as tickets to Opera Australia, plus three nights’ accommodation in Sydney.
Oaklands chef Clinton Pendlebury will prepare a delicious three-course dinner with drinks on arrival to get you in the mood.
The dinner will be held on Friday, October 20 at Oaklands Events Centre, Pambula. Tickets are $100 per person and all proceeds go towards local community organisations in the form of grants. Tickets can be purchased at www.mumbulla.org.au
