2013 Gala Ball
The 2013 Concordia College Gala Ball was a stunning 'Night on the Green' for over 300 guests held in the Members' Dining Room at Adelaide Oval on Saturday 2 November. After enjoying pre-dinner drinks on the David Hookes Terrace overlooking the parkland, guests were seated at tables adorned with cricket stumps entwined with ivy and fairy lights as the evening got underway. The food was exquisite and the music, provided by Concordia's string quartet, jazz quartet and top Adelaide showband 'Blackjack' provided a fantastic soundtrack to the evening.
The live and silent auctions were also a highlight, with one guest outbidding the rest for a particularly unusual prize; the chance to be trained and join in the fun as a clown at the Adelaide Christmas Pageant! In total, more than $35,000 was raised through the Gala Ball towards the installation of air-conditioning in the College Chapel.
