Silo magic for Shepparton ConnectGV dinner

By John Lewis

The Goorambat silo art will provide a magical backdrop for ConnectGV's fundraising dinner in March.

Tickets are now available for the annual event, which sells out every year.

ConnectGV chief executive Carolynne Frost said the annual dinner was always a special experience for the wider Shepparton community to get together and socialise.

“Each year our fundraising committee unearths a location to provide a ‘one-night only’ experience, making this annual event a sought-after ticket on the local social calendar and a sell-out each year,” Ms Frost said.

At this year's event, guests will enjoy food, live music and dancing under the stars — and the towering artwork of Melbourne street artist Jimmy Dvate.

Ms Frost said proceeds from this year's fundraiser would help purchase specialised equipment for ConnectGV's new $5 million day centre, construction of which is due to start next month.

Tickets to the Goorambat Silo Magic fundraising dinner on Friday, March 20 are $150, which includes a three-course meal, drinks and bus transfers between Shepparton and Goorambat.

Tickets can be purchased from ConnectGV, 71b Wyndham St, Shepparton until March 13, or until sold out.
