Join us as award winning, celebrity comedians and hilarious local identities battle it out on this year’s contentious debate topic, ‘Artificial Intelligence: friend or foe?’.

The local personalities supporting them are; Nisheeth Agrawal, Kellie Mills, Nick Gill from 106.9 and Mai-Wel's very own Matt Newcombe. Tickets are now on sale for $85 per person and include a three course meal and all of your laugh-out-loud entertainment. Beer, wine and soft drink are also available to purchase on the night along with some fantastic prizes!

One of the most exciting fundraising activities on the night will be The Mai-Wel Group’s Debate Raffle, which offers guests the chance to win the first prize of a 15 day Jewels of Europe River Cruise sponsored by italk Travel and Scenic.  Second prize is a Blue Water Sailing, 2 hour cruise for 6 people, donated by PRD Nationwide. Lastly, our third prize is a Pandora sterling silver necklace with two charms! Raffle tickets will available to purchase for $10 or 3 for $20 on the night. This means the winner will be in the room!
