Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation

Gala Guest Feedback

“To say simply that the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation Gala is the most sophisticated, thoughtful and professional charity event on the Sunshine Coast is to limit the success and impact of the night. It is an event that would not be out of place in Sydney or Los Angeles or any other venue where expectation of style and attention to detail is exceptionally high. Attendees on the night are transported to a completely different place. Last year's evocation of classic Hollywood glamour perfectly conjured up that era, while guests played the tables and drank aptly-named martinis and dined on excellent, generous food. Kylie and John understand that an event that does not scrimp on what it provides is more likely to elicit greater returns to the charity. The funds raised are the most important objective of the evening, but their determination to produce something beyond the ordinary is as much a goal. They succeed at both.”

“Out shines every event I have attended (and there are many) including many exclusive Sydney based events”

“The cmbcf gala is one of the most sophisticated professional, not to mention successful, charity events on the Sunshine Coast. Hyatt Regency Coolum is extremely proud to be the host venue of the Anniversary Gala and we look forward to continuing the association between the Foundation and the Resort.”

Brooke Retchford, Hyatt Regency Coolum
“The gala evening is the ‘best night of the year’ to quote my husband. Where else can you be entertained, sip French champagne and dine on gourmet food while chatting with old and new friends? Every year there is a twist to the theme to keep us guessing. To make it even better while we are having a wonderful time we are supporting a worthwhile home-grown Sunshine Coast Foundation.“

 “The cmbcf gala is a premier event on the Sunshine Coast that continues to set the standard for charity functions. Great charity, great event.”

Myles McNamara, Sunshine Coast
“I have had the pleasure of attending the cmbcf gala for the past two years. It is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to such a worthy cause whilst socialising in a casino style atmosphere. This gala is special because it is so different to other black tie events. The high standard of venue, food, refreshments and entertainment has also enticed our friends from interstate to attend. The gala will always be an annual event on our social calendar.”

Lyn Dunbar, Sunshine Coast

“High  stakes all class.  Adored the Moet Piccolo on arrival. You absolutely did not disappoint. The Sunshine Coast has finally come of age in the Black Tie stakes. Can’t wait to receive my invite in the post for next year.  Will definitely bring friends and business associates.” 

Lindsay and  Hannah Berry, Melbourne

“WOW! My husband and I have attended many gala events but none as stylish and as well run as the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation Gala. From the time you walked in to the beautiful entry, the wonderful beverages, the scrumptious meal & relaxed friendly people having a great time, you felt very special. The committee say it is going to be bigger & better this year Is that possible?  But these are very special & dedicated people so we are looking forward to the best night out on the Coast! “
