The Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia (MNDSA) is set to host its highly anticipated Gala Dinner on 1 November 2024 in Morphettville Racecourse’s new Wolf Blass ‘The Man’ Event Centre.

Yes, it’s November, a few months down the track. But,if you snap up the EARLY BIRD tickets now, you’ll be thanking yourself for the savings you made. With that extra cash, you can have more fun with the fundraising activities during the event. The Early Bird allocation expires on June 30th, so snap them up now (I’ll just throw this Early Bird link in here – you’re welcome).

With a theme of “A Starry Night Gala Dinner,” it promises to be a sparkling evening of indulgence. So, pull on your finest evening attire and ensure you incorporate some waist space for the indulgent three-course dinner, partnered with a cheese buffet and five hours of flowing champagne, wine, beers, and non-boozy bevies to keep the night flowing. All set against the view of Morphetville’s lit-up racecourse and twinkling lights scattered over the Adelaide Hills.

MC Mickey D, comedian extraordinaire, will keep the laughs flowing through the night, while popular Adelaide band “The Incredibles” promises to be incredible at entertaining you. From the latest tracks to the classics that get us up on the dance floor, their gig set is expansive and guaranteed to deliver a few favourites for everyone at the event. Dance, rock, R&B, rap and classics. Make sure you’ve pulled on your comfortable shoes (or that sneaky pair of handbag-friendly ballet flats, ladies)!

Now, let’s move on to why all the fun and generous partygoers are gathering for this event: raising funds for Motor Neurone Disease South Australia (MNDSA).

MNDSA’s motto, “Until there’s a cure, there’s care….” beautifully and succinctly encapsulates its purpose: providing care and support for those living with MND.

The Gala Dinner is MNDSA’s most valuable fundraising opportunity, supporting the continuation and expansion of its indispensable services. Every dollar raised through this event enables our fellow South Australians to retain an achievable level of independence and quality while living with the challenges posed by this disease.

Along with ticket sales profits, money will be raised through live and silent auctions. If you feel like you nailed the “Dress to impress” theme and want a memory that’ll keep you feeling impressed with yourself for the days and months to come, strike a pose in the fundraising photo booth. Take that baby home, and stick it on your fridge with pride as you remember the night you looked brilliant, you had a blast, and you contributed to a very important cause for your community.

Hang on, not finished yet. Do you love a surprise? I do, and so does the MNDSA Gala Dinner team, who’ll ‘drop’ a sneaky stash of surprises through the night.

When you buy your tickets, you can also donate individual tickets or a full table to MNDSA clients, ensuring that those who are being supported can also join in the fun.

Below are links to buy your tickets and more information about MNDSA. Enjoy the night!

About the MNDSA

The MNDSA plays a vital role in supporting South Australians living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). MND is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move around, speak, swallow and breathe fail to work normally and eventually die. With no nerves to activate them, the muscles gradually weaken and waste. There is currently no cure or effective treatment, only care, and life expectancy from diagnosis is, on average, just 27 months.

MNDSA is the only organisation that has been providing dedicated support to South Australians impacted by Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and has been, for the past 38 years, working closely and personally with patients, families, carers, workplaces and health professionals confronted by MND. They offer a range of support services, including support coordination, allied health services as well as the provision of vital assistive equipment, including home aids and communication devices. Advocacy and education about MND also form a key part of MNDSA’s purpose, and they have also enabled MND trials to be undertaken in South Australia through research donations and advocacy.

MNDSA’s efforts aim to improve the quality of life for those living with MND by addressing their immediate needs and helping them manage the daily challenges of the disease and the complex supports they require at no or minimal cost to the person with MND.

A diagnosis of MND affects not only the person with MND but also, on average, 14 other direct people around them. MNDSA need to fundraise to continue providing these vital services, as without them, there is no one else to take the call when a person is diagnosed.

We all want to see a cure for MND, however until there’s a cure, there’s CARE provided by MNDSA.
