A bright night up in lights: The Annual Positive Vibes Gala Dinner

Saturday 8th Oct 2022

In 2022, we held our sixth annual gala dinner, raising vital funds to assist the local community with mental health initiatives.

Donations go directly back into our not-for-profit organisation to help promote positive mental health through deeper community connections and conversations.

The four main programs these funds are put towards are The Hills Women’s Shed, Paw Visits, Young Healthy Minds and community engagement.

Guests to the gala dinner include business and community leaders, and professionals, all of whom work together to incite change within the local community. 

The event included a three course dinner, live music and entertainment, raffles, auctions and dancing. Each year a prominent keynote speaker talks about their mental health challenges and how they overcame them, to help break the stigma around mental health.

Past speakers include:

  • Richard Brancatisano (“Richie Branco”), Australian television actor and musician.
  • Munjed Al Muderis, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Human Rights Activist.
  • Deng T Adut, Child Soldier to Refugee Lawyer.
  • Jake Edwards, ex-AFL player and founder of Outside the Locker Room.
  • Dr Geoffrey Toogood, Cardiologist and Founder of CrazySox4Docs.
  • Normie Rowe AM, Singer / Songwriter and Australian Icon.
