Mirabel Foundation’s 20th Birthday Fundraiser
Twenty years ago, the Mirabel Foundation was established to take care of children (0-17years) orphaned or abandoned due to parental drug use. With enormous support from the music industry, Mirabel was launched in 1998 at The Prince of Wales Hotel and featured a star studded line up including Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes and Cold Chisel, Archie Roach, Augie March, Chris Bailey, Spencer P Jones, Rowland S Howard, Renee Geyer, The Avalanches, Molar, Deborah Conway and Rebecca Barnard.
Twenty years on, Mirabel remains the only organisation in Australia working specifically with this group of vulnerable children, many of whom have experienced extreme grief and trauma. Mirabel works at restoring a child’s sense of love, self-worth, belonging and hope – all critical factors for them to reach their full potential as young adults. Mirabel believes that ‘every child deserves a childhood’ and is currently supporting 1600 children and young people with 8 new children a week referred to our programs. The generosity of the community not only ensures that we never turn a child away but also gives these children a voice, assuring them that they are not forgotten.
Following the announcement of the enormous Mirabel Foundation Birthday bash line up featuring the likes of Paul Kelly, Mark Seymour, Deborah Conway, Vika & Linda Bull and Ross Wilson alongside Dave Larkin, Davey Lane, Benny Walker and Clare Bowditch with support from members of the legendary RockWiz band and the night hosted by Brian Nankervis ; Mirabel are are excited to reveal the latest addition Ella Hooper to the list of Australian music royalty set to take the stage by storm on July 6th at the Prince Bandroom.
