Description

We can’t quite believe it ourselves, but Save the Children has been working in Western Australia for 70 years! That means we’ve been making a difference to children’s lives since 1947.

Join us together with special guests Fred Chaney AO, Stephen Curry and Mary G for an evening of comedy, culture, drinks and canapés.


When: Friday 20 October, 2017 - 6.30pm–9.30PM
Where: The Old Brewery,
173 Mounts Bay Road Perth
Entry: $100
Dress: Cocktail


Enjoy a flow of canapés and drinks at the beautiful Old Brewery while listening to the inspiring Fred Chaney, founding co-chair of Reconciliation Australia, alongside performer Mary G – The Queen of the Kimberley. There’ll be other special guests you’ll love to meet, including actor and comedian Stephen Curry, who’s also an Ambassador for Save the Children Australia.

You will also have the chance to win some wonderful prizes at our auction, including some fabulous items generously donated by our special partners, Cygnet Bay Pearls and True North - Luxury Kimberley Cruises Australia.
