A successful Bloody Good Dinner

Wasn’t the Bloody Good Dinner an incredible night at the Botanica Marquee in the Royal Botanic Gardens?

Together, 300 guests, plus some lovely raffle ticket purchasers, raised an incredible $710,000 for the Snowdome Foundation and Maddie’s Vision! Thanks to you, the 2022 Bloody Good Dinner was our most successful event by far.

Guests kicked off the night mingling with drinks and canapes in the beautiful Botanic Gardens, before making their way into the marquee to be welcomed by our MC, Hamish McLachlan.

Thanks to Chef Jacqui Challinor, food was abundant, with the guests well-fed all night! Spectacular service from the team at Blakes Feast kept the guest’s drinks topped up with a smile.

When our amazing guest speaker Grace generously shared her story of her daughter Raya’s cancer and the importance of funding research, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Thank you, Grace.

Later in the evening things got quite lively, with our Auction attracting some very spirited bidding! Congratulations to our Raffle and Auction winners who walked away with some pretty fantastic prizes thanks to our generous sponsors.

Thank you to NOMAD Executive Chef, Jacqui Challinor and team, our event partners, the generous sponsors, donors and our dedicated volunteers.

Without you, this would just not be possible.
