About Gold Dinner

Gold Dinner is regarded as the most exclusive charity gala in Australia, since its inception in 1997. Over the years, it has garnered the support of Sydney’s most influential business and community leaders, social elite and fashion set, raising nearly $60 million for Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation. 

The efforts of Gold Dinner have significantly contributed to major developments in the Hospital’s service, particularly respiratory services, the pain and palliative care service and most recently, critical care services.  

Since its inception in 1997, the Gold Dinner has raised nearly $60 million for Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation.
