You’re Invited to Light Up A Life!

It’s that time of the year again! The time our community comes together in support of St Kilda’s Sacred Heart Mission. Chisholm and Gamon are proud to be ongoing sponsors of such a noble and generous organisation, and are delighted to promote their annual Light up a Life Cocktail Party. 2014’s principal fundraising event will be held at Encore, St Kilda Sea Baths, 10-18 Jacka Boulevard at 7pm Thursday the 20th of March. The after party is at Captain Baxter situated next door in the same complex.

For the last eleven years the Light Up a Life Cocktail Party has been organised by the Sacred Heart Mission in conjunction with the Mission’s Women4Women Committee, and 2014 looks to be their best event yet. As in years past, the Light Up A Life event is certain to dazzle and delight - featuring entertainment by Phil Ceberano, delicious cocktails, great raffle prizes and auction items (rowdy auction to be called by our very own Torsten Kasper and Sam Gamon!) and glittering jewelry for sale benefiting the Women’s house by co-supporter Misuzi.  

Enjoying status as a must-attend social charity event of the year, there is no doubt that the Light Up a Life Cocktail Party has earned itself  pride of place on many people’s calendars. The community’s ongoing enthusiastic support is testament to the quality of the Sacred Heart Mission’s initiatives - as they have been assisting the homeless and underprivileged of the Bayside and Port Phillip Bay areas for 30 plus years.

Since 1982 Parish Priest Father Ernie Smith has been motivated by the gospel passage from Matthew 25:35-36 to share with those who are less fortunate. Since the happy day that Father Smith shared his meal with a homeless man in St Kilda, the mission has grown into an organisation that provides breakfast and lunch routinely for hundreds of people in need. The development of the Women4Women committee is a result of the mission’s growth - with more volunteers allowing for fresh initiatives to get underway.

The committee has put in a great deal of time and effort to ensure that the Light Up a Life Cocktail Party 2014 is both memorable and efficient in raising funds for women of Melbourne who are in need.
