The Perfect Pink Christmas

Following the success of the Inaugural Gala Dinner in 2007, the McGrath Foundation is proud to host the ‘Christmas Party of the Year’! Have your Christmas party in 2009 with us.

This ‘pink tie’ event will be a night to remember with the promise of snow on the night and Foundation Friend and co-host of the Today Show, Karl Stefanovic, as MC. Joining Karl to perform on the night will be Australia’s Got Talent winner, Mark Vincent, together with the Endeavour Choir.

We guarantee everyone will go home with a present if they purchase a mystery box, sip delicious McGrath Foundation Pink Cocktails, add some pink to the greenest of Christmas trees with our limited edition McGrath Foundation Christmas ornaments and be dazzled by our magician roaming the room, whilst enjoying a sumptuous 3 course dinner along with a selection of premium beer and wine.

Guests will have the opportunity to take home some truly unique auction* prizes including:

Signed by world renowned pop sensation P!nk, a Gibson hot pink guitar, specially made for the McGrath Foundation

An exclusive box with catering for you and 19 friends on Day 1 of the 3 mobile Sydney Test, with visits from circketing legends, Glenn McGrath, Michael Bevan, and others, AND Shane Warne’s hot pink jacket worn at the 2009 3 mobile Sydney Test, signed by Glenn McGrath, the entire Channel 9 Commentary team and the Australian Test Team

A one-on-one surf lesson from seven-time world surfing champion, Layne Beachley, to ride her favourite breaks at Manly beach, with your own Layne Beachley signed surfboard and surfwear voucher for Layne’s new range of surfwear, Blue Kiss (note: this prize may only be redeemed in the Sydney area)

Pink your ride like Glenn McGrath and Tracy Bevan, with rare numeral only pink plates, (numbered 15151 and licensed in NSW), generously donated by the RTA

Have Masterchef winner, Julie Goodwin, host a dinner party for eight at your home (note: this prize may only be redeemed in the Sydney area)

For those who want to kick-on after the Gala Dinner, your ticket will grant you an access all areas pass for the exclusive Sydney hot spot, the Ivy. And, thanks to a value-for-money accommodation package at the Sydney Harbour Marriott you can turn your spectacular evening into a great weekend. The package includes room, breakfast and valet parking for $199 per room.

Instead of buying presents for your loved ones this year, why not get together and agree to have a fun night out with the McGrath Foundation instead?

It will be a great night, with good friends, and you’ll also be helping to raise funds to help the McGrath Foundation fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses throughout regional and rural Australia, whilst at the same time helping to increase breast awareness in younger women.

Tickets are selling fast, so grab your friends to book your table today!
