The beautiful Pointe Shoes designed by some of Australia’s leading designers and artists will be revealed and available for auction today at The Advertiser Foundation and Australian Ballet Gala Function.
The Gala Luncheon being held today in the Ballroom at the Hilton Hotel at 12pm, will see these beautiful pieces of art adorning the tables and available for purchase through a silent auction. The funds will go to The Australian Ballet (Children’s Productions) and Act For Kids (preventing and treating child abuse and neglect).
Guests at the lunch, hosted by Channel 7, Today Tonight Host, Roseanna Mangiarelli, will be able to delight in a South Australian first, as The Australian Ballet Artistic Director, David McAllister, has approved a Pas de Deaux performance by two principal dancers.
