GALA CHARITY DINNER – 2022

Held every 2 years, the Gala Charity Dinner is a tremendous evening. The Shire community comes together to show their support for our great local charities and community groups.

Sponsored by Sylvania BMW and The Rotary Club of Caringbah, the Gala Charity Dinner is organised by a committee who arranges the entertainment, prizes and fundraising activities. 

To get involved, the charities simply need to sell tickets to the event.  This gives them an opportunity to get together with their supporters or volunteers and enjoy their efforts for the year without worrying about all the hard work of preparing such an evening. The Classic’s committee does the work with the charities receiving the profits from the night based on the number of tables they sell.

We will update you all in the future when the next Gala dinner is planned.
