The Event

The SSI Mosaic Gala will be a ticketed, fundraising, black-tie gala dinner with an international/multicultural theme that showcases Australia’s diverse cultures.

There will be a tantalising degustation menu featuring cuisines from various cultures and entertainment will be provided by groups presenting traditional dance and musical performances.

It will be a dazzling mosaic: bringing many different elements together to form a beautiful whole.

Gala Proceeds

The 2018 SSI Mosaic Gala will raise funds to support two SSI refugee programs: Ignite Small Business Start-ups and Refugee Scholarships.

SSI Refugee Scholarships were created to minimise the financial barriers experienced by refugees as they participate in the NSW education system. The scholarships directly support people from refugee backgrounds in NSW to achieve independence.

SSI Ignite Small Business Starts-ups facilitates business creation for people from refugee backgrounds who are passionate to establish a small business or expand an existing one.
