#OzDayNYC Black Tie Awards 2020

January 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - January 26, 2020 @ 12:00 am

2020 #OzDayNYC Black Tie Gala


On Saturday, January 25th, 2020, The Australian Community will again be hosting its annual #OzDayNYC Black Tie Awards to recognize Australians who have donated their time and talent to assisting our nonprofit organization in its charitable mission.

#OzDayNYC is a re-envisioning of an Australian Black Tie Gala: It is a modern celebration of Australian philanthropy and performing arts.  It is an opportunity for our professional community to come together and celebrate the achievements of other Australians living in the United States.

Whether you are purchasing a corporate sponsorship or a single ticket, everyone will feel welcome.  The relaxed format of the meal, and a premium open bar, ensures everyone will have every opportunity to socialize and network throughout the evening.

Members and invited guests will be entertained with live performances by award winning Australian talent.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid in our Charity Auction to support The Australian Community’s charitable Mission.

Holding the After Party in the Long Hall Bar on the ground floor means that there is no need to leave the building for those who wish to continue the festivities into the early hours.


Jeremy Balkin is a best selling Author, Philanthropist and leads the Innovation Strategy for HSBC's Retail Banking and Wealth Management business in the USA.

Jeremy is being honored not only for his achievements in Business and Philanthropy, but also for his advocacy for our non-profit organization, and his support of our expat initiatives.



The Australian Community will be recognizing Georgia Kate Haege, Elise McCann, Hilary Cole, Tamara Hansson, Sean Wayland and Ben McHugh for their talent, and charitable contributions to our organization.
