Description

Blue Hearts Cocktail Event

Join us for a night of good food, good wine and goodwill, and help reduce the heartbreaking prevalence of Stillbirth in Australia - in honour of Bluey Joshua Ryan and all babies born sleeping.

For one night only some of Brisbane's premiere chefs join forces and shine a light on Stillbirth to raise much needed awareness and funds to reduce this heartbreaking statistic which claims the lives of 6 babies a day, a number that has not changed in decades.




Your ticket to this exlusive event includes:


Good Company

The evening will be hosted by Celebrity Chef Alastair McLeod, and one of Brisbane's most unique venues, Lightspace;

we'll hear keynote speeches from Keren Ludski, CEO of Red Nose, and Leigh Brezler, newly appointed CEO of the Stillbirth Foundation;

and enjoy skin tingling music by Machine Age.


Good Food & Wine

Enjoy tasty morsels from chefs Jake Pregnell and Simon Hanmer of Little Valley / Ben Bertei of LongTime / Katrina Ryan of Golden Pig.

Cork & Co + Naked Bunch will be serving wines from some of Australia's most progressive winemakers!


Goodwill

Proceeds from the night will be used to fund a strategic project to drive change and reduce the instances of Stillbirth in Australia. That project will be launched by Blue Hearts in partnership with and endorsed by both the Stillbirth Foundation and Red Nose.

This follows on from a hugely successful 2018 fundraising campaign which raised over $21,000 and funded the production and amplification of 2 separate video and PR campaigns for the Stillbirth Foundation. This awareness campaign was nominated for, and won Gold at, the Sydney 2019 "Driven by Design" awards recently, in the category of 'Marketing - Film, Video, Viral'. Click here to see what we achieved with the help of family and friends!

There will also be opportunity to partake in further fundraising on the night via a live auction as well as a raffle and there are some amazing prizes to be won, including a Tesla 'Owner's Experience' for a weekend!

Thank you in advance for your support and attending on the night. Almost all the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the cause. Our incredible partners and vendors have all donated their time, skills and products which means almost every dollar raised will help drive necessary change (minus some minimal expenses at cost).

Donations (via "Tickets" link)

Sponsor a Parent

Unable to attend the event, but still want to help make a difference?

Gift a ticket to a parent who has lost a child to stillbirth. Your donation will not only go towards helping to prevent stillbirth, but will also let a parent know their child is not forgotten.

Sponsor a Baby Balloon

Do you want to acknowledge a baby gone too soon? Or unable to attend the event, but still want to help make a difference?

Each baby balloon sponsored symbolises a baby gone too soon, and your donation will go towards helping to save other babies from the same fate. The balloons will be on display at the Blue Hearts Cocktail event, with the name of the baby you have sponsored. You can nominate the name of the baby you would like to acknowledge, or we can nominate one for you. Click on "Tickets", and select "Sponsor a Baby Balloon" under the Donations heading.

Make a Donation

You can also make a donation either via the above "Tickets" link, or to avoid administration fees and ensure every dollar makes a difference, you can donate directly via the Stillbirth Foundation Link below. Please be sure to make the donation in Bluey Ryan's name, so that the proceeds can be put towards our next project in his honour. https://stillbirthfoundation.org.au/donate/
