Hosted in the stunning Hackett Hall under ‘Otto’ the blue whale, WA Museum Boola Bardip marked its first anniversary in a joint dinner celebration with the Foundation for the WA Museum on Saturday, 20 November 2021.
The event saw partners, friends, guests, and of course donors of the WA Museum and its Foundation come together to enjoy a night to remember.
Pre-dinner drinks hosted in Reflections set the scene for the evening. Guests then made their way across Hackett Bridge, taking in the view of the setup that awaited them downstairs in the Stan Perron WA Treasures… Candlelit floating balloons, hues of red and fuchsia projected throughout the room, and two impressively long tables set for everyone to be able to sit back, relax and take in every second.
Guests were treated to a delicious menu from Heyder & Shears and delectable beverages from Vasse Felix, Tattarang Springs Distilling Co, and Gage Roads; magnificent entertainment from West Australian Opera’s Principal singer – Paul O’Neill accompanied by Artistic Director Chris van Tuinen on piano, and an incredibly special insight into the first 12 months of Boola Bardip being open from none other than CEO, Alec Coles OBE.
All proceeds went into the Foundation’s Discovery Endowment Fund which seeks to provide a secure source of future income for the WA Museum, enabling them to be truly bold and deliver world-class activities with confidence for many years to come.
A big thank you to our event sponsors Heyder & Shears, PAV, Vasse Felix, Tattarang Springs Distilling Co, Gage Roads, Kelly Pilgrim-Byrne 7 to 1 Photography, Sue Lewis Chocolatier and The Balloon Fairy.
