Event description
The Compassionate Friends Victoria is excited to invite you to our inaugural Cocktail Evening in The Dome, Collins Street.

About this Event

All proceeds from the evening will go towards supporting bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents to find hope to rebuild their lives following the death of a child.

We are looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and, if this is your first encounter with The Compassionate Friends Victoria, we warmly welcome and look forward to getting to know you.

Our guest speaker is Walkley award-winning senior crime reporter for The Age, John Silvester. John has a weekly crime commentary slot on 3AW (Sly of the Underworld) and is a noted co-author of The Underbelly series.

Amongst his many accolades, John is the recipient of the Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year, eight Press Club Quill awards and was inducted into the 2018 Journalism Hall of Fame.

John is especially noted for his compassion for families who have been bereaved through crime and police-related trauma and will be joined on stage by a bereaved parent and sibling sharing their personal experience of grief and loss.
