Cirque Du Soleil themed Gala Dinner raising over $45,000 for local charities.

Working in conjunction with the major sponsors, BMA and Anglo American, and the nominated charities, Mater Foundation and CQ Rescue, redevents coordinated the second annual Bowen Basin Charity Ball in Moranbah. Based on a visually dramatic Cirque du Soleil theme, the gala event raised over $45,000 in aid of the two charities. 

The evening included professional acrobatic performers from the Ariel Angels, fantastic catering provided by NE Food and a host of local and national celebrities. Ex-Wallabies player Dan Crowley emceed the night while the auction was hosted by Peter Houghton and assisted by Brisbane Broncos players, Ben Hannant, Matt Gillett, Michael De Vere, Paul Dyer and Simona Vavega. The attendees were also entertained by the hilarious comedian ventriloquist, Darren Carr, and local Mackay band – the Josh Geiger Duo. 

The purpose of the evening was to raise money for charity, whilst promoting the community-minded ethos of the sponsors. The amount of money raised and the feedback received by redevents from attendees was all extremely positive, with all parties involved satisfied with the success of the ball.
