"We love a full dance floor and sore feet”
As musical entertainment for the evening, we are pleased to have the talented Baker Boys band joining us! They will play an acoustic set on Jones’ Bay Wharf during pre-dinner drinks and liven things up later in the evening on the dance floor with their energetic and talented 5-piece band.
 
Congress Gala Dinner - Guest Speaker
Wheelchair rugby gold medallist Chris Bond will be our inspiring guest speaker for the evening.
Chris is missing both legs below his knees, his left wrist and his right four fingers as a result of a severe infection from a flesh eating bacterium he got while also being diagnosed with leukemia when he was nineteen years old. Chris will share his incredible story, from his cancer journey to his life after cancer and what he has gone onto achieve.
