Light Up A Life Cocktail Party
Light Up a Life is the annual fundraising event for Sacred Heart Mission Women's House and takes the form of a sunset cocktail party at Encore, St Kilda Sea Baths.
It is a wonderful evening of sparkle and fun, where both women and men can have a great night out with friends, develop business networks and connect with peers. The event includes live entertainment, delicious finger food and drinks plus some fabulous auction items designed to make the bidding very competitive. Funds are raised through ticket sales, a raffle, a silent auction and rowdy auction.
The goal is to raise $95,000 in much-needed funds to keep the Women's House operational.
Emcee for the evening will be television and radio personality Jo Stanley. Live music will be provided by Phil Ceberano and the SoulRockSupersound.
