About This Event

Get your tickets now! The Lady Musgrave Trust is fundraising to build safe and secure homes through our Logan Housing Project and we need your support.

The crowd of attendees to the Cocktail Party in 2023

This year we will be dedicating our Annual Cocktail Party Fundraiser to raising money to deliver a new, transitional housing complex in Logan for young mothers (aged 18-24 years) and their children by late 2024.

Once completed, this development will provide young Queensland women with an additional 3,500 nights of safety per year.

The generosity, enthusiasm and discussions around this project have already been immense. But as we look to break ground in early 2024, we still need to raise additional money to go towards construction and running costs.

Due to the extreme levels of homelessness being experienced by women in Queensland, and the rising cost of living continuing to put pressure on the housing sector, this complex is needed now more than ever.

The model we are working towards as an organisation won’t just provide housing solutions for homeless women, but will provide the means to solve the problems leading to homelessness in the first place.

We want to thank those who made 2022 and 2023 record years for the Cocktail Party. But there is still so much work to be done to ensure Queensland women and their children facing homelessness get the help they need.

Your support, as both a corporate entity and as an individual, will directly change the lives of Queensland women and their children. This is a tangible difference that we can make together.

What to expect

At the 2024 Cocktail Party, you can expect great music, food and drinks overlooking Brisbane’s Story Bridge, as well as the chance to bid on some amazing items and experiences in our charity auction.

Additionally, the Cocktail Party will include:

  • Entertainment by Divas of House
  • MC: Amelia Oberhart, SCA Journalist and Host of podcast series Secrets We Keep: Shame Lies & Family
  • Auctioneer: Haesley Cush, CEO and co-partner of the Ray White Collective
  • Sponsored Champagne

Secure your tickets now as they sell out quickly.

Wow – a fantastic afternoon of fun and fundraising!

The room was filled with so many generous and committed people who are part of a solid solution that will provide more young Queensland women with a safe place to live. This generosity created an incredible vibe (the pictures tell that story)!

Your generosity and support is inspiring and fortifying. Thank you for showing us what is possible when we come together as a community.

In particular, we want to say a big thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers – because without you, an event of this scale wouldn’t be possible.

If you missed out on the event, but would still like to get involved, please consider making a donation.
