Mai-Wel Gala Ball


Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Mai-Wel Gala Ball, proudly presented by Imagine Now I.T. Together with your support we raised more than $20,000!



On Saturday 29th April, 2017, 240 guests came together at the Maitland Town Hall for Mai-Wel's 7th Annual Gala Ball, proudly presented by Imagine Now I.T. Guests were treated to a twilight pre-party outside before heading into the hall for an indulgent arabian night; wining, dining and dancing the night away to eight-piece band The Swing Kings.

Mai-Wel's CEO, Pennie Kearney attended the event, and was thrilled with the support provided to Mai-Wel.

“The first Gala Ball was a celebration of Mai-Wel’s 50 years of operations,” said Pennie.

Over the past six years the Gala Ball has raised more than $130,000 for people with a disability and jobseekers in the Hunter region.

"This year we are fundraising to fitout our new project space specifically, equipment for our café training facility."

“This new space will provide jobseeker's with hands on prevocational training opportunities and will increase employment opportunities.”

More than $20,000 was raised and will be allocated to supporting youth and disadvantages jobseekers by offering prevocational training opportunities. Funds will be used to fit-out a project space, assisting with jobseeker skill development and increasing employment opportunities for young people in the Hunter. 

The Mai-Wel Group wishes to thank and acknowledge our event sponsors;  Imagine Now I.T., Starr Partners, Signature Clothing, Hunter Signs and Gecko Security, together with the many local businesses who supported the event by providing in kind sponsorship and donations.
