Event Overview

February 11 will play host to one of the “must-attend” events on the 2017 Brisbane social calendar – The Variety Valentines Ball. Raising much needed funds for Variety – the Children’s Charity of Queensland, this spectacular “Gatsby” themed evening will be held at the Tattersalls Club, a venue like no other.



The hugely successful Variety Valentine’s Ball returns for its second year to raise much-needed funds for Variety Children’s Charity, after raising more than $60,000 in its inaugural year. The beautiful Sofie Formica will return to MC the event and lead you on your Valentine’s Gatsby adventure.

With a 4-piece 1920’s swing band, dance-floor, roving performers, ‘magical’ guests, ladies touch-up stand, roving photographers, a monster raffle, lucky door prizes, as well as prizes for best dressed male and female in a ‘Fashions of the Night’ parade, there will be non-stop excitement ALL evening. The menu will include canapés on arrival, a seated supper, dessert, and a four-hour beer and wine package.

The underlying theme of the event is “Unforgettable Experiences” with the main feature of the night being an “Unforgettable Experiences Auction”. We will be auctioning unique or ‘money-can’t-buy’ experiences that will never be forgotten … just as the children that Variety supports won’t forget the experiences and help they receive from our efforts.
