Annual Fundraising Dinner 2006

The 2006 Annual Fundraising Dinner was held at the Shangri-La hotel Sydney on World Sight Day Thursday 12 October. Over 250 people joined special guests the Hon Malcolm Turnbull, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, MD Foundation Patron Ita Buttrose AO, OBE and Miss Universe Australia, Erin McNaught. Well known actor and comedian Jean Kittson generously donated her time to be Master of Ceremonies for the evening, providing a humurous and perceptive insight into her parents' experiences in living with MD.
The event offered a myriad of attractive prizes to guests through live and silent auctions and a raffle conducted on the night. The live auction featured a luxury cruise in the Kimberley, which went for a successful bid of $17,000. Entertainment on the night was provided by a three piece band 'Mid Nyt Sun', who played a mixture of songs from the past three decades.
A special thank you to all the generous sponsors, supporters and attendees who helped make the night a great success (see our sponsors).
