Post Event Report – Masquerade For Hope 2015

On Friday, 20 November 2015, guests were invited to a stylish evening of masquerade at Perth’s launching event in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Hands for Hope.

The Pan Pacific Golden Ballroom played host to 321 guests at the highly anticipated launching event for Hands for Hope, Masquerade for Hope. The event brought together Perth’s most stylish for a glamorous evening of decadent entertainment, delicious cuisine and determined fund raising. Hands for Hope receives no government funding, and relies solely on the kindness and generous donations of the local community to fund H4H projects for the disadvantaged children of rural Vietnam.

On entering the foyer, excited guests wearing lavish masks, were invited to strike a pose in front of the “Masquerade Sponsor Wall”, while photographer, Mr Tai Nguyen captured all the glitz and glamour of the red carpet arrival.

Once inside the Golden Ballroom, guests were treated to a continuous flow of wine, beer and champagne, and a mouth-watering 8 course Asian banquet specially prepared by Pan Pacific’s Executive chef and his team. The Golden Ballroom was lavishly styled by the talented team at Perth Weddings and Events, with collaboration from Stage & Studio Productions and PAV Events. Tables were dressed with “The Phantom of the Opera” inspired candelabras, and large 3D masquerade masks decorated the ballroom.

Guests were kept entertained throughout the night, with the sultry sounds of live singer, Mim Fitze, and a photo booth by SuperSnaps Photobooth who provided keepsake memoirs for the guests to take home. Guests were then treated to a two-part fashion extravaganza firstly showcasing the talented works of Hue Le and her glamorous evening wear at Studio Collections, followed by a high energy dance routine showcasing Anna Carla’s latest swimwear collection, Russian Empress.

H4H President and co-founder Nhan Nguyen made a guest appearance at the launching event, which saw many guests moved to tears as they listened to her moving and heartfelt stories of her experiences with H4H over the past 15 years. In particularly, the story of the 15th anniversary ambassador, Trung Le, and her amazing transformation over the years, truly captured the hearts of many.

The evening generated the majority of its fundraising through its spirited Live Auction – hosted by the lively auctioneer, Peter Holmes. A number of sports memorabilia, limited edition watches, artwork, and bottles of whiskey found a very good home that evening.

With over $10,000 worth of prizes up for grabs, guests also took part in the spirit of giving by purchasing Raffle tickets to both the general raffle, and the luxury raffle, and 11 lucky winners walked home with a raffle prize that evening.

The evening raised a record amount of money of $52,653 – a truly unexpected and humbling result. The overwhelming response received from both sponsors and guests alike, made every effort of bringing together Masquerade for Hope extremely worthwhile.

DISPLAY

We sincerely thank all the H4H volunteers who helped make the evening a huge success, and to our extremely generous sponsors whom without their support, Masquerade for Hope 2015 would not have been possible. Finally to all our glamorous guests who attended the ball, and opened their hearts to H4H. We say ‘thank you’ on behalf of the underprivileged children in rural Vietnam who will benefit from your kindness and generosity.

Following the success of our launching event, we have begun planning for our next annual gala to be held at Crown Casino, Friday 25th November 2016, which is set to be even bigger and better! We are already seeking the support of corporate sponsors and donors, so to register your interest please email us at perth [at] handsforehope.org.au Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, and we look forward to seeing you all in 2016!

Hands for Hope presents Trio Bresciani

Hands for Hope is proud to presents a First Class classical music concert by our very own Ambassador Hoang Pham, winner of the 2013 Symphony Australia Young Performer’s Award, together with Trio Bresciani.

Enjoying a first class concert by Trio Bresciani whilst helping Hands for Hope to empower 400 underprivileged children.

I value H4H’s mission to enrich the lives of underprivileged kids in rural Vietnam. If everybody works together, we can empower children through education to bring them new skills and experiences. I know how difficult it can be because I grew up as a young refugee. But the right support goes a long way and I don’t think I would’ve realised my potential as a concert pianist without this. I want to help H4H because I believe in their work. Go kids!Hoang Pham.

Time & Date:  Sunday 7th Dec 2014 @ 2:15pm
Venue:  Adamson Hall, Wesley College, Melbourne.
