This fundraiser is a project of Winds of Hope, a Port Melbourne based charity working towards improving healthcare services in Uganda and educational outcomes for young women in need.

We're supported by our local partners, including the Rotary Club of Albert Park.

Our goal for 2020 is to open our own school in Uganda, offering free primary school classes to girls from families who are unable to afford school fees, uniforms and tuition.

This event is an important fundraiser for our cancer and HIV/Aids awareness and immunization programs, with proceeds used to improve the lives of youth and young adults in Uganda who are afflicted with preventable and treatable diseases. Learn more about our outreach programs below.

All proceeds from the night go directly towards our outreach programs in Uganda:
