The dinner will celebrate the life and achievements of Eglantyne Jebb (1876 – 1928), a British humanitarian and founder of the Save the Children Fund and the International Save the Children Union.
She also authored the Declaration of the Rights of the Child which was adopted by the League of Nations in 1924.
The Roaring Twenties Gala black tie event will feature fine food and wine and a whole lot of live jazz.
The night will be hosted by Sean Craig Murphy from Mix102.3FM and feature a “Chicago” musical floorshow, plus a live auction in support of Save the Children conducted by auctioneer Lindsay Warner from Brock Harcourts.
The gala dinner will be the glitziest night in Adelaide since the 1920s and it’s all for a good cause.
Save the Children operates in 130 countries across the world and is one of the world’s largest aid agencies, and one of its most innovative.
The foundation offers everything from individual child sponsorship, to child “work training” schools, to playgroups and school meals.
They also conduct land mine removal programs, and offer scientifically driven “positive deviance” education and health programs for children.
Eglantyne’s most famous quote was, “The only international language is a child’s cry,” and Save the Children still follows her principles to this very day.
Limited tickets are still available @ $170 per head or $1500 for a table of ten.
