November 13th, 2021 was the FAR 2021 Black Tie Gala at historic Customs House, situated on the Brisbane River, with keynote speaker Hon. Emma Hurst MP.

Glamorous Gala attendees enjoyed five courses of delicious vegan fare, with a five-hour open bar serving premium bubbles, wine, beer, and soft drinks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The evening began with the Open Bar at 6 pm on the terrace by the Brisbane River, overlooking wonderful views of the Story Bridge as the sun goes down and the lights come on.

Dinner then commenced inside with a delectable menu of vegan treats:

Roll with olive oil

Mushroom tart tatin, onion caramel, truffle, soft herbs

Gnocchi with an eclectic selection of seasonal vegetables

Chocolate tofu tart, raspberry, chocolate sorbet

Coffee or tea with chocolate

At table drink service was available through the night, or drinks can be obtained from the bar. The Open Bar is included for the entire duration of the event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our keynote speaker was the Hon. Emma Hurst MP. Emma who was elected to the upper house of the NSW Parliament and is the first female to be seated from the Animal Justice Party. A former psychologist, Emma has worked tirelessly for the rights of animals for many years with a background in campaigning, political lobbying, and media work.

Since she was elected in March 2019, Emma has used her time in parliament to bring animals to the forefront of political discussion: running inquiries into battery hens and animals in entertainment, preparing legislation to ban puppy farms, securing legislative reform on the link between domestic violence and animal abuse, banning the breeding and importation of captive dolphins, increasing penalties for animal abuse, and campaigning against the use of animals in experimentation.

Attendees also heard from our President Brad King and enjoyed the premiere of our 2021 End of Year video.

Participants also had the opportunity to bid for items from our silent auction, including art from local influential artists and some exotic adventures.

Our MC Rob Wilkinson kept the evening moving along in his witty style, and told us all about the opportunities on the night to win some great prizes. Every penny of profit and funds raised from the night of the event went directly to the animals.

During the latter part of the evening the dancefloor opened up, or some took the opportunity to relax in peace by the Brisbane river on the private river terrace. The Open Bar remained until 11pm when the music winds down and we bid you farewell.
