Description

Join us for a thrilling night of entertainment and one last chance to farewell the lovely Donna Agnew before she heads off to Russia for life changing treatment.


We’ve got a celebrity line-up of performers including comedian, Wilson Dixon, known for his dead-pan style of killer one-liners and great musical comedy, as well as the talented songwriter, singer and acoustic guitarist, David Shanhun.

Plus our special guest auctioneer will continue to keep things lively as he auctions off some fabulous items donated by our sponsors, with one big ticket item you won’t want to miss out on! Then as the night sparkles on DJ Warren Day will play some iconic tunes to help you dance the night away.

And in true Russian spirit, club prices will be available on the bar so you’ll be able to afford those Vodka Martini's…

  • Tickets only $25pp
  • Light finger food provided during the night
  • Full cash bar available with club prices
  • Live auction and raffles
  • Final fundraiser, everyone welcome

Hurry tickets available online only and with this stellar line-up and price they won’t last long. So book in your babysitter, gather your friends and family. This is a night not to be missed as we take you to Russia with love!


Final Fundraiser
The best part is, that while you’re enjoying a fabulous night out, you’ll also be helping Donna Agnew in her fight to beat Multiple Sclerosis.
