Jesuit Social Services is proud to again be the charity partner of the Great Australians Gala Dinner, which will be held on October 14 at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

Performers at last year’s Great Australians Gala Dinner

Last year, we gratefully received close to $100,000 following the event. This helps to support our ongoing work with marginalised members of the community.

The Great Australians Gala Dinner, now in its 4th year, will be attended by luminaries from the entertainment and sporting worlds including Olympic gold medallist Stephanie Rice OAM, Aboriginal soprano and actor Deborah Cheetham AO and entrepreneur and former president of the Geelong Football Club Frank Costa OAM.

The event aims to break down stigma around suicide. A participant of our Support After Suicide program, which provides counselling and support to people who are bereaved after the loss of a loved one, will share his personal experience.

The Gala Dinner will also feature entertainment from Bonnie Anderson, The Chantoozies, Wilbur Wilde and Frankie J Holden in addition to live and silent auctions featuring international trips.

A table of eight is $5,500. To book phone (03) 9421 7600 or visit
