The fourth annual Aussie Down Under Charity Ball - 2015 held on April 18th at Moscow’s Radisson Royal Hotel - Ukraina was a phenomenal success!
The hotel’s opulent interiors immediately set the mood for an unprecedented evening; while the ballroom and the evening’s program, peppered with distinctive Aussie attributes like projections of leaping kangaroo across the walls, added the finishing Aussie touches.
Guest of honor this year was Australian boxing legend Kostya Tzu and his wife Tanya. Kostya generously provided prizes for the charity lottery and auction. Also attending the evening, in support of BBBS Russia was the director of BBBS Australia - Sherilyn Hanson.
Gabe, the Aussie cowboy was in fine form as always, showing his MC-ing and auctioneering prowess as well as performing classic Australian rock with renowned Aussie musician David Peachey.
The menu touted succulent Australian lamb, proudly supplied by MLA.
