The Karinya House Annual Mother’s Day Gala Dinner is always a great night of fun and celebration! Join us on 3 May 2019! Our 2019 Mother’s Day Appeal runs concurrently through the month of May.
The funds raised during May are enough to employ a full-time caseworker for twelve months. (The cost of a full-time caseworker is over $80,000 including salary, oncosts and infrastructure support). A caseworker walks alongside up to 10 women at any one time.
Held in the Corinna Ballroom at The Canberra Southern Cross Club, Woden, the evening starts with on arrival drinks at 6.30pm through to 7.00pm. Book your tickets here.
Alternate service entrée and main course, followed by delightful petit fours for dessert. Your table will have a complimentary bottle of Sparkling, White and Red Wine as well. Be entertained by Canberra’s Premier Band “Hitparade“, and the fabulous “DJ Carbolic”!
We are pleased to welcome Mugshots Photobooths at this year’s event and we thank Maggie for supporting Karinya House through the booth availability. We welcome our guests to have fun at the booth (free), take home a strip of fun filled photos, with electronic images available from Karinya House after the event upon request.
