#OzDayNYC Black Tie Awards 2019

January 26 @ 7:30 pm - January 27 @ 3:00 am


On Saturday, January 26th 2019, The Australian Community will be hosting its annual #OzDayNYC Black Tie Awards to recognize Australians who have donated their time and talent to assisting The Australian Community in its charitable mission.

#OzDayNYC is a re-envisioning of Australia Day:  It is a modern celebration of Australian philanthropy and culture in New York, and not the establishment of a British colony more than two centuries ago.

Whether you are purchasing a single ticket, or a table for 10, everyone will feel welcome and have the opportunity to mix and socialize throughout the evening - and into the early hours at the After Party in the Long Hall Bar on the ground floor!




The Australian Community will be recognizing Amelia Cormack, Nick Atkinson, Lynda Kinkade, Rupert Boyd, Georgia Kate Haege and Kurt Sneddon for their charitable contributions to our organization.



Zjantelle Cammisa Markel is a top-rated Immigration attorney who practices law in New York City.  Zjantelle not only assists her clients on Business and Immigration issues, but has been an avid supporter of The Australian Community from our inception in 2011.

Zjantelle is being honored not only for her commitment to assisting Australians live and work in the U.S., but also for her Pro Bono commitments to our non-profit organization.
