If you’re hoping to attend the Equality Dinner on January 25 you better get in quick — the event has nearly sold out.
The Star Observer understands there are only 10 tickets left for the $300 a head charity event, to be held at Sydney’s waterside Quay restaurant.
Australian Marriage Equality (AME) national convenor Alex Greenwich said he had been bowled over by the level of support for the event, which will include a charity auction with items donated by Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue, Icon Films, Vodaphone, MasterChef’s Julie Goodwin and signed Lady Gaga memorabilia donated by Universal Music.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of a number of prominent Australians who are helping us out at the dinner,” Greenwich said.
“The funds raised from it will certainly help continue the campaign into 2012 and everybody attending the event will also receive a gift bag from Becker Minty worth around $65.”
Greenwich said Priscilla, Queen of the Desert director Stephan Elliott, whose new film A Few Best Men premieres the day after the dinner, had been particularly supportive. Elliott will speak at the event alongside Professor Kerryn Phelps and wife Jackie Stricker-Phelps, columnist Mia Freedman, equality activist Rodney Croome, and radio personality Geoff Field and his partner Jason Kerr.
Tickets are still available through Daisy Tickets and there are discounts available for SGLBA and Mardi Gras members.
