vip fundraiser

On Friday June 10, 2022 the Goanna Academy will be hosting our first ever Fundraising Event at the Magnifique Ballroom, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour.


Our event is a night to support the extraordinary work that the Goanna Academy has made a commitment to in striving to assist everyday Australians and young people who suffer in silence.

The night will feature:

  •  esteemed speakers such as Prof. Gordon Parker (Founder of the Black Dog Institute), Simon Dodd (Headspace), and NRL alumni including Preston Campbell, Craig Gower & Rhys Wesser

  • thrilling entertainment from comedian Steph Tisdell, the Muggerah Dance Group, and Skylark

  • luxury experiences at auction including a 3-night trip to Tokoriki, Fiji & money-can't-buy experience at State of Origin Game 3

all MC'd by the excellent Chris Smith, and featuring guest presenters Ray Martin & Ray Hadley.

Enjoy a fully inclusive three-course dinner with live entertainment and help us get closer to breaking the stigma of mental health.


It's important to the Goanna Academy to let our supporters know how we will use your financial support - because your generosity by attending the evening will help fund our key areas of work:


Supporting people affected by mental health by travelling to regional areas where services and support is limited


Implement additional prevention programs delivered by the Goanna Academy to young people and communities


Working with our State and Federal Governments to achieve additional support for education for schools as part of their health curriculum
