Mai-Wel’s best night of the year is back!

Celebrate 60 years of inclusivity and opulence at Mai-Wel’s Annual Gala Ball.

Mai-Wel’s Annual Gala Ball is back and better than ever!

After COVID-19 put a halt to Mai-Wel events and fundraising initiatives in 2020, Mai-Wel’s Annual Gala Ball was postponed until such time that the event could be held while maintaining the health and safety of all those who attend. Mai-Wel is excited to announce that the time is now!

The highly anticipated event is set for Saturday, 16th October 2021 at the one and only Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, situated in the heart of the Hunter Valley wine region.

Although a year has passed, the Ball will still commemorate Mai-Wel’s 60th Anniversary, celebrating this huge milestone of providing opportunities for people with disability to achieve their dreams and goals for life.

To mark this as a night of fun and inclusion, Mai-Wel is now offering subsidised tickets for people with disability and their support. General admission tickets are priced at $185, with a portion of this money being allocated to the subsidised ticket price of only $50.

The Crowne Plaza is accessible for all levels of mobility, with a drop off point right by the entrance and ramp access throughout the property. So, put on your best dress, or suit and tie and come along to celebrate in style!

Last year Chris, a Mai-Wel participant, talked about his experiences at the Gala Ball. Participants like Chris have had an amazing time at past Gala Balls, and are sure to enjoy another night of fun and elegance:

“I enjoyed getting together with a lot of new, interesting people and a few familiar faces, as well as the dancing and the food,” Chris said.

As in previous years, guests will enjoy a delicious three-course meal, refreshments and entertainment, with this year being hosted by celebrity television presenter Liv Phyland and live music from well-known Newcastle band, Gen-R-8. Further fundraising activities will also run throughout the night, with some fantastic prizes to be won from amazing sponsors.

Limited tickets are available, so be sure to grab yours TODAY to be part of this amazing night of opulence and inclusivity.
