Gala Ball postponed


 Mai-Wel’s 10th Gala Ball postponed to 2022

The effects of COVID-19 have again put a hold on Mai-Wel’s major fundraiser, the 10th Gala Ball presented by Imagine NOW I.T set for 16th October 2021.

Mai-Wel’s CEO, Lynne Graham, says the postponement is disappointing but an essential decision for community safety backed by the current state-wide event restrictions.

“We understand that these are trying times and are so thankful for the ongoing support from our community,” said Lynne.

“The Gala Ball is such an exciting event and opportunity for us to celebrate the great things happening across Mai-Wel and fundraise for upgrades to our facilities and services.

“We put people at the heart of everything that we do here at Mai-Wel, and it is with a heavy heart that for the second year in a row we need to postpone. We look forward to finally celebrating our 60th anniversary, which fell in 2020, when it is safe to do so in 2022.”

The date of the rescheduled Gala Ball will be announced as soon as possible.

Tickets held by guests will be transferred to the new date. Guests wishing for ticket refunds can contact Mai-Wel’s Events Team on 4057 2900 or
