Humpty Dumpty Gala unearths treasures for charity

December 12, 2017 MICE No Comments Email Email

The annual Great Humpty Ball, the black-tie fundraising event for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, was recently held at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. The magical evening raised over $900,000, an incredible result, that will help to secure essential and life-saving medical equipment for children in hospital.

With 15 years’ experience creating this event, Staging Connections delivered elaborate styling and AV throughout the venue, transporting nearly 400 guests under the sea for the Sea of Dreams themed ball.

Corporate attendees and long-time supporters of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation arrived at Humpty’s Pier – the Four Seasons’ foyer – beginning the evening ‘on land’, complete with pillars, roping, fish nets, seagulls, photo opportunities and a pre-dinner drink at the suitably decked out bar.

Through a rock cavern archway was the ballroom, creatively designed with décor, lighting and AV content to immerse everyone in an under the sea experience. Oceanic digital content was projected on the walls and around the room all evening, and a large LED screen was used as the stage backdrop, flanked with treasures from the seafloor. The familiar Humpty was playfully animated in a submarine, navigating between all the screens.

The ceiling featured giant jellyfish and a boat rigged up overhead to mimic looking up from the seafloor. The main stage was dressed in “coral” props and tables were adorned in sea and coral tones, with shells, sea anemone-like florals, and whimsical lighting.

Humpty Dumpty Foundation Patron, Ray Martin AM, hosted the evening guiding guests through a mix of entertainment, fine dining and fundraising. Entertainment featured amazing performances from Connor Maclean, Darryl Braithwaite and The Leon Fallon Experience.

Paul Francis OAM, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation expressed delight at such a successful event.

“This is our night of nights to help us surge towards our fundraising goals, and thank our wonderful supporters with a great night out. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the result and how much of a difference it will make in the lives of sick and injured children in hospitals across Australia. Guests absolutely love attending this event every year.

We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to Staging Connections for their professionalism, attention to detail and passion for our cause, which is a huge part of making the event the success that it is today.”
