A special feature was the auction of the unique cases painted by 8 Aussie icons & 8 Shelford Girls’ Grammar students

“Wow what a great cause and what a great night. Wendy and I were moved by the beautiful testimony of the young mother who spoke eloquently about the challenges she and her family had faced and the opportunity, significance and meaning that the gift of the holiday represented to them all.

The entertainment, keynote speakers, company, food and wine (and winning the Bulldogs photo montage at the auction) rolled together into a fantastic night.” Tony & Wendy.

“The Give Back & Getaway Dinner was a fantastic experience. Not only did we have a great meal at the Park Hyatt and meet some interesting people, we were able to hear more about the struggles of every day families and their children, and the great work that the Foundation has been able to do.

The auction was a highlight for me, as well as meeting two Australian icons- Gabriel Gaté and Steve Bradbury. I would encourage people to get involved with the Magical Getaway Foundation.” Alyce Vella.

“Last year my husband and I were lucky enough to win Give back & Getaway Dinner tickets from Gold FM. It was a wonderful night, I was so inspired and touched by the stories and generosity of people in the room. The meals were also great!” Megan Ibrahim
