Say 'oui' to a night in Paris!


The 2015 Mai-Wel Gala Ball, proudly presented by Gecko Security, has all but sold out thanks to the loyal efforts of Hunter Valley locals.

Back for its fifth year, the Mai-Wel Gala Ball has become a much anticipated event on the City’s social calendar and this year will be no different, with a touch of French flare set to dazzle the Maitland Town Hall.

CEO of The Mai-Wel Group, Pennie Kearney, is really excited about the evening and hopes that guests are intrigued about what the night will hold.

“Our local community has experienced a horrible couple of weeks so we greatly appreciate that people have chosen to support our Gala Ball and people with a disability in the Hunter,” Ms Kearney said.“This is one of the last major events at the Maitland Town Hall before it undergoes renovation and we look forward to seeing it lit up in a dazzling array of vintage lights, revealing the true grandeur of its majestic ballroom”.

Very limited tickets to the black tie event are still available. Tickets are $150 each, and include; a three-course meal, all beer, wine and soft drinks, access to premium auction items and prizes and fantastic live entertainment from popular eight piece band, The Swing Kings. Tickets can be purchased online via or by phoning the Mai-Wel Events Team on (02) 4932 8599.

To coincide with the Gala Ball, The Mai-Wel Group will be drawing their major raffle for the year on the evening. Valued at $23,000, with thanks to italktravel and Scenic Tours, first prize is a Scenic Tours 13 day South of France River Cruise for two people, including return flights from Sydney. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased via the website.
