The Unicorn Foundation is coming back to Adelaide in 2017!

The Unicorn Foundation is pleased to announce our Adelaide Gala Dinner on 12 August 2017.

Guests will be treated to views of Adelaide City and Adelaide Oval over a three course dinner with beautiful Yalumba wines (beer and soft drink also available) whilst enjoying the sounds of Jazz from the talented musicians at Music Adelaide. We are very pleased to welcome back the respected and loved Mr Graeme Goodings who will again be officiating the event as Master of Ceremonies.  We are so lucky to have the incredibly talented and adored singer/songwriter Rachael Leahcar to entertain guests on the night. Rachael took out third place in the first season of The Voice in 2012.  With a career that has seen her release three Top 10 ARIA charting albums, tour her live show to sold out crowds and travel to Italy to sing with Andrea Bocelli's orchestra. We are incredibly excited and honoured to have Rachael perform live at the Oval exclusively for our guests.

Try your luck on the wine wall!  Lucky dip a numbered cork for $20 and take home the corresponding bottle of wine.  Each bottle has a minimum value of $20 but there are quite a few worth a whole lot more.  Be quick to avoid missing out, the Wine Wall sold out in less than 30 minutes in 2015.

All funds raised from the evening will go towards building our National NET Cancer Resarch Fund and help us continue to provide our vital support services to all NET patients.
