Schwarzer at the chairty event at Sydney’s Star City
As well as coming on board to facilitate the event, cicreate was also a partner, donating time and resources while Star City was a major sponsor of the event and The Sony Foundation Australia the beneficiary.
CiEvents put out the invitations, finalised attendees and worked in partnership with The Sony Foundation Australia to secure performances from acts such as Wes Carr, Katie Noonan, Angel and Rudely Interrupted. Alan Jones was the MC for the evening and the likes of the Julia Gillard MP and NSW Premier Nathan Rees MP gave speeches.
More than $250,000 was raised on the night itself, with proceeds still coming through.
“The eight-day timeframe to stage an event of this scale was certainly challenging, but the team worked closely with supporting sponsor Star City and beneficiary The Sony Foundation Australia to rise to the challenge, drawing on their extensive experience and contacts to ensure the night was a resounding success.”
