On Saturday 8th June 2024 Teen Challenge QLD hosted its annual Hope Gala Fundraising Dinner, proudly sponsored by Well Life Service and DCC Industry Group, at Brisbane City Hall. The HOPE GALA fundraising dinner is the major fundraising event on the Teen Challenge calendar and this year we will be celebrating 10 years of HOPE GALA!   The fundraising goal was $350,000 which goes towards our drug and alcohol residential rehabilitation programs. 
 

On the night we hosted over 500 guests, with our MCs will be Duncan Armstrong (Olympic Champion and celebrity speaker) and Steff Willis (96five radio presenter), LURE Band and Corey Hargreaves entertained us, we heard stories of hope and transformation and enjoyed a delicious three course meal.  There was also a charity auction and there time at the end of the night to celebrate with us on the dance floor.

 

One of the highlights of the HOPE GALA fundraiser was the Live and Online Charity Auction. The bidding is always fierce, and the amount raised in these auctions is generally around 25% of the overall proceeds raised from the evening.

Splash - Lauren's story (Navy).png

Lauren grew up in a typical suburban home, but when she was 10, her dad, a local policeman, experienced a traumatic event that almost cost him his life. The effects of this spilled over into their family life, and life became strained. Home didn't always feel like a safe place for Lauren. She also experienced significant trauma personally during her childhood and teenage years, and a series of challenging experiences left a lasting and devastating impact on her. And for many years, Lauren suppressed these feelings.

 

But everything changed when Lauren went to the TCQ rehabilitation centre.  It was here that Lauren found freedom from her addictions and none of this would have been possible without the support of people like you. Lauren says it best…

 

“It's a place that gives life back. It gave back mine.”
