South Australia’s most prominent identities gathered at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Saturday, 1 December for the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation’s annual black-tie Night of Lights Gala Dinner to celebrate a successful year in fundraising for equipment, facilities and programs at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The glamorous event raised more than $130,000, which will go towards funding life-saving equipment for the Hospital’s Women’s and Babies’ Unit.
Finalist from Channel Nine’s The Voice and Adelaide’s very own pop diva from local band The Flaming Sambucas, Sarah Lloyde featured as guest entertainer and performed with energetic dancers and talented musicians. Local cover band, Acoustic Juice then enticed guests to dance the night away with all-time favourites.
Guests indulged in a three-course meal cooked by leading South Australian chef, Simon Bryant (from ABC TV’s The Cook & The Chef) and enjoyed local wines by Wirra Wirra.
Sponsored by Macquarie Private Wealth, the Gala event celebrated the spirit of generosity, the tradition of giving during the holiday season and the difference being made to the lives of seriously ill children at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
