It was a sold out, star-studded, Black Tie event at Pier A that recognized the contributions of Australian performing artists Amanda Bishop, Marika Aubrey, Ben McHugh, Kaye Tuckerman, Nick Hardcastle and Jeremy Youett. Our Honorees were Stella Pulo and Sullivan Stapleton.
It was also great to see fellow Blindspotactor Luke Mitchell and his wife Rebecca Breeds stop by with Sully. World renowned Australian Classical Guitarist Rupert Boyd added a special touch to the evening with a live performance.
The guest list read like a who’s who of Australian performing artists!
It was a star studded #OzDayNYC Black Tie Awards on Friday January 26th 2018 to recognize Australians who have donated their time and talent to assisting our non profit in its charitable mission.
#OzDayNYC is a re-envisioning of an Australia Day Black Tie Gala: It is a modern celebration of Australian philanthropy and culture. It is an opportunity for our Community to come together and celebrate being an Australian living in New York.
The format of the evening is an opportunity to mix and socialize throughout the event - and into the early hours at the After Party in the Long Hall Bar on the ground floor!
