Wildlife for Tomorrow!

The Wildlife for Tomorrow Cocktail Event presented by The Star Gold Coast was a huge success last Thursday evening.

The room was filled with our loyal community of philanthropists, corporate partners, and even scientists making a positive impact on the future of wildlife.

Guests were delighted to hear all about the next chapter for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital in a beautiful setting at the Isoletto Privé thanks to The Star Gold Coast.

The event raised over $40, 000 which will make a huge difference in helping our team to save wildlife.

The night highlighted the importance of prevention rather than cure and guests were the first to see the plans for the new Wildlife Research and Education Campus.

We were able to put the spotlight on Dr Michael Pyne OAM, Senior Vet at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital as well as other intelligent minds from the wildlife world including Dr Lyndal Hulse and Associate Professor Steve Johnston from University of Queensland.

Our MC for the evening was Channel 7’s Tony Auden, a loyal Koala Advocate who volunteered alongside Auctioneer Rob Doorey.

With prizes including a Gwinganna Wellness Weekend and a Lady Elliott Island Eco Resort Experience, to name a few, it was easy to keep the bids flowing!

The beverages were also flowing thanks to Husk Distillers who donated welcome drinks including Inked G&T’s and Coconut Breeze cocktails.

It was also a beautiful night recognising the many talents of our supporters and Koala Advocates including world-renowned violinist Yena Choi and singer-songwriter Chloe Styler.

Thank you to all our incredible supporters and everyone who volunteered to make the night possible.

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, although it is our goal to reduce admissions through scientific research, collaboration and conservation on the global stage.
