The inaugural Great Australians Gala Dinner held in 2014 was an outstanding success. This year the event returns to Melbourne and will again see a host of Great Australian icons gather together for one amazing evening.
Our Great Australians are an inspiration and send a message of hope for people in need. Through this event we seek to highlight that any Australian can achieve greatness if given the chance and to provide an opportunity to celebrate the Great Australian within us all.
Guests will have the honour of a Great Australian joining them at their table for an evening of fine dining, conversation and entertainment from some of Australia’s music legends..
The Great Australians Gala Dinner aims to raise funds for “Growing Hope” an initiative of Jesuit Social Services.
Jesuit Social Services works with some of the most disadvantaged young people in the nation. Many have suffered family violence, abuse, neglect and homelessness – often leading to mental illness, self-harm, drug/alcohol abuse and, in extreme cases, suicide or attempted suicide.
Through counselling, community connection and practical programs that deliver employment and life skills, helping young people get back on track and find direction in their lives.
Your commitment to the Great Australians Gala Dinner will ensure that Growing Hope is able to continue its valuable work.

"After attending many similar events over the years, could you please pass on to your senior management and Board that last Saturday nights’ event was one, if not the, best event of its type that I have attended. Congratulations to all of the organisers.
I can vouch that my entire table was thrilled with the Dinner, the Great Australians on our table and are eagerly awaiting next year if Jesuit Social Services decides to hold another.

A belated thank you for your kind and generous invitation to the Great Australian Gala Ball on Saturday night.
Brian and I both had a truly fabulous time. The evening was exceptional and ran seamlessly. From the beautiful tables, a truly professional MC who played the room and ran the evening with precision, energetic raffles, sublime food right through to the exceptional musical talent – it was a magical evening. It has been a long time since I have been somewhere when 90% of people are up on the Dance Floor – with the majority over 40!!
You and your team should be exceptionally proud of a great evening and do hope you pass on my gratitude and congratulations to them all.
A quick note to say thanks and if you could please pass on to all your team. The Lounge package on Melbourne Cup Day and the Def Leppard concert this week, both purchased at the Great Australian Charity Dinner, were totally awesome. So often how these things get executed by way of the attendance information, ticketing etc, can fundamentally impact the user experience. It was flawless from your team, therefore my experience was enhanced. Great job by your team!
Thank you and congratulations to the entire team for once again putting on a wonderful evening for such a good cause.
Thank you to all our sponsors for their generous donations
