The John Logan Foundation’s Seventh Annual Gala Dinner will take place on Saturday, 6 August and we need your support. The JLF Gala Dinners from 2010 to 2015 raised net proceeds of more than $550,000, with our biggest years being 2013, 2014 and 2015. There were approximately 550 guests and eight major industry supporters at the last three Dinners, helping us to raise more than $320,000 on those chilly August Saturday nights!

In the six years since we helped our first JLF recipient living with gastrointestinal cancer, we have been able to aid more than 300 others, spending more than $850,000 in the process. We could not have achieved this without the generosity of the Australian Gift and Homewares industry.

The JLF Gala Dinner has become an industry highlight in the calendar year, while fundraising to make a difference in the lives of many Australians and their families. We invite you to be a part of this night “to make a difference” and to take a table at the Seventh Annual JLF Gala Dinner. The cost for a Table of Ten is $2,000, including GST. Payment prior to 31 May, 2016 includes a $100 discount ($1900 including GST) for this and any additional table booked. Individual tickets may also be purchased. Every ticket purchased will help our cause.

Our goal is to sell 650 tickets for the 2016 event. The Gala Dinner will be held in the Melbourne Room 1, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Wharf on Saturday, 6 August. The evening will commence at 6.30 with pre-dinner drinks, followed by a sumptuous three-course meal for which The Melbourne Room is now famous. We are delighted to welcome our MC, musician and media personality, Geoff (Coxy) Cox who is a gastrointestinal cancer survivor himself. Coxy has supported the John Logan Foundation for many years now and we are thrilled to have him as MC for 2016. Dancing music will be provided by the Swing Sensation Big Band.

We hope you will be able to support us this year. If you are ready to commit, could you kindly purchase your table/s or tickets online via This link will take you directly to the home page for booking tickets for the Gala Dinner: Instructions to use this online forum can be found here.
