The White Ribbon Foundation White Tie Dinner



 The White Ribbon Foundation is hosting its 5th White Tie Gala Dinner.

Join The White Ribbon Foundation at the Dinner and help raise funds for their work to end violence against women. The Dinner promises to be yet another unforgettable night with celebrity guests, dazzling entertainment and fabulous opportunities in both our silent auction and raffle.

This year's raffle will offer a new car for one lucky guest. The car was donated by the Automotive Holdings Group.

The White Ribbon Foundation

The White Ribbon Foundation of Australia aims to eliminate violence against women by promoting culture-change around the issue. The major strategies to achieve this are a national media campaign as well as education & male leadership programmes aimed at men and boys around Australia. All funds received by the White Ribbon Foundation will support the implementation of these strategies.

White Ribbon Day was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of fourteen women in Montreal. They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women.

In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared November 25 the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW) and the White Ribbon has become the symbol for the day.

The campaign continues to go from strength to strength and now boasts more than 230 white ribbon Ambassadors Australia wide, as well as more events across the country and more organisations and individuals participating year upon year.
