WELCOME HOME GALA 2018 – MEDIA RELEASE

 

KARL STEFANOVIC and SYLVIA JEFFREYS will host the George Naim Khattar Foundation’s charity gala to be held at Le Montage on Saturday 30th June, 2018.  Australia’s favourite TV presenters are generously supporting the GNK Foundation to help raise funds for their favourite charity, Youngcare, for whom they are both passionate Ambassadors.

Each year the Board of the George Naim Khattar Foundation select a charity or community project that will change lives with the injection of much needed funds. Last year’s event featuring a performance by Jessica Mauboy was a sell-out success and raised over $203,000.

In 2018, the GNK Foundation will proudly support Youngcare’s High Care Grants Programme.

Youngcare recognises that too many young Australians with high care needs are being left behind; living in institutionalized housing like aged care and hospital rooms.  It is an issue that spans the corners of the country and yet is so close to home. 28,000 young people are seeking a suitable place to call “home”.

The GNK Foundation aims to raise vital funds for Youngcare’s High Care Grants programme to assist in providing suitable housing and grants to ensure all young people with high care needs can remain at home with their loved ones or transition into their very own home.

“Karl and I are thrilled to be leading the 7th Annual GNK Foundation Gala Dinner on the 30th June 2018 in Sydney.  It’s set to be a fantastic evening, with entertainment from Ricki-Lee Coulter.  All proceeds of this event will benefit Youngcare, a charity very close to both our hearts, fighting for choice, independence and dignity for young people with high care needs across Australia.” – Sylvia Jeffreys, Channel 9 TODAY Show Presenter and National Youngcare Ambassador.

A glittering black tie event, the GNK Foundation Gala is renowned for bringing together Sydney’s business and community leaders who pay tribute to the humanitarian spirit of George Naim Khattar, former director of Dyldam. The Gala is proudly sponsored by event partner BETTA Home Living and foundation partner Arab Bank Australia and foundation sponsors Nader Jewellers, Dyldam and James Estate Wines.

The WELCOME HOME Gala will include an intimate performance by Ricki-Lee Coulter and a heart-warming first-hand account of the life-changing power of living with independence and dignity by a Youngcare grant recipient and advocate for the cause.  The raffle of a $50,000 single diamond from Nader Jewellers, a live and silent auction, and three course gourmet dinner with beverages will complete the evening.

Bookings for the 2018 GNK Foundation Gala can be made by emailing events@gnkfoundation.org.au. Tickets are $250 per person or $2,500 for a table of ten people.

The GNK charity gala will be a night of great entertainment, gorgeous gowns, gourmet dining and above all a good cause.
