Karinya House Annual Mother’s Day Gala 2021

This year we are doing things a little bit differently.  For 2021, we invite you, your family and friends to “Gala at Home – Your Way” in whatever way you fancy! Join us in May, as we celebrate women in our community as we do every May. You might have a fancy dinner, you might have a barbeque (with a fire pit!) or you might have a High Tea.  Whatever way you “Gala at Home”, we would love to hear about it. However you celebrate, add to your Menu, a sweet option that includes a Donation to Karinya House, and invite each of your guests to support our May Day Appeal.

The Karinya House May Day Appeal will be running throughout May as usual.  Normally, the Karinya House Gala Dinner is the main celebration and a major awareness and fund raising event.  Just to be sure, we have postponed this year’s event, and instead invite you to “Gala at Home – Your Way” for 2021.

Sharon from Sharwood Hampers is looking for the Best Presented Gala at Home Photo – and the winner (as judged by Sharon!) will win a fabulous Sharwood Hamper valued at $255.

So we invite you to register your “Gala at Home – Your Way” event below – to be held anytime during May, invite your family and friends.

Don’t forget to take images of your event and if you upload them via socials – please make sure you tag us so we see them.  To be sure your images are entered in the Best Presented Gala at Home Hamper competition, please also email them to us. The Winner will be notified early in June.

Sharon has also created the perfect Nibbles at Home Hamper – a special Karinya House Gala at Home/Mother’s Day Hamper priced at $100 to be part of your “Gala at Home – Your Way” Event. The sale of every Sharwood Hamper supports Karinya House.  For this special offer for every Gala at Home Hamper, $5 will be donated to Karinya House. You can find this hamper on the Sharwood Hampers Website for a limited time.

Our Friend (and the best DJ in Aus), Sean and his friend Marnie, who together are the instigators of “Twoloose Wine Co” have set up a wine offering for you also.  $50 from every order of a case of their scrumptious – perfect for all occasions – “NFV Shiraz” –  You can order your case and read more here – Karinya NFV Order Form.

Over at the Canberra Southern Cross Club, preparations for their In House Mother’s Day events are well underway.  In 2021, by popular demand, they are also offering their now infamous, “Mother’s Day High Tea Hamper” – Orders are now open for pick up or delivery for Mother’s Day (orders close 7 May).  You might like to “Gala at Home” early in May with a High Tea on Mother’s Day and order a hamper from the Canberra Southern Cross Club specifically for the purpose.

If you Gala at Home this May, let us know by registering below.  Tag us with your events and images on socials @karinyahouse and use the hashtag #GalaAtHome2021

See you in May!
