Starry Starry Night Gala Dinner
Client: Alannah and Madeline Foundation
Where: Crown Melbourne
It was a star-studded evening for this year's Starry Starry Night Gala Dinner. Staging Connections were engaged by Peter Jones Special Events to deliver all the audio vision, production management, lighting and staging for this prestigious fundraising event, which raised a staggering $700,000 towards keeping our children safe from violence. The event attracts more than 1,000 guests alongside 100 celebrities and entertainment stars, who individually host tables and perform a variety of singing and dancing acts. Special performances by (MC) David Campbell, Leo Sayer, Gorgi Coghlan and Waleed Aly from The Project amongst many others! The stunning room look was created using a black gloss, gold mirror and brushed metals, with the ceiling installation a hero for the evening. With so many celebrities and the like in attendance, we used our Event Feed to display all the social buzz live on screen. The activity this generated resulted in the event's hashtag trending on Australia's Twitter feed that evening.
