Last Saturday night, 2nd May 2020, would have been Mai-Wel’s 60th Anniversary Gala Ball celebration at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley and, while I do love the comfort of my own home, I, like many other Ball-goers was disappointed that I wasn’t frocking up for the occasion.

While it was unfortunate we could not celebrate with our community and long-time supporters, I take comfort in knowing we have made the right decision early to postpone the event.

I am delighted to announce that the Gala Ball will return in 2021 and will still commemorate Mai-Wel’s 60 years of service in the Hunter. The event will be held at the same venue, with the same first-class entertainment, exciting fundraising activities and premium food and beverages.

Our Communications and Events team have taken these circumstances in their stride and will be utilising this extra time to ensure the 2021 Mai-Wel Gala Ball is an unforgettable evening.

So, I urge you to keep your ears and eyes peeled for the announcement of our new Gala Ball date.

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this time and I’m already looking forward to seeing you at our 60th Anniversary celebration next year.
