Hosted by Jane and Glenn McGrath and with MC, Mike Whitney, the inaugural McGrath Foundation Gala Dinner was a night of glamour and glitz Viva Las Vegas style. Over 600 Foundation supporters came along to the ‘McGrath Hotel’ at Randwick Racecourse, NSW, and were entertained by three huge music performances, showgirls, gambling and of course, Elvis!

Over $650,000 was raised from the night through donations, ticket sales, a raffle and both live and silent auctions. Thanks to the generous donations of all attendees, the Foundation has already begun discussions to place at least two additional breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia.

The McGrath Foundation would like to thank all attendees, and in particular, Ken Moran and Alan Jones for their very generous donations. The Foundation aims to host a major fundraising Gala Dinner in May of each year – to receive further information on the next Gala Dinner, please email Lesley@mcgrathfoundation.com.au.
