Hero by Night paints a picture

28 Oct

Staged at the WA museum, ‘Zero2Hero’ held its 4th annual cocktail function which created awareness and raised funds for suicide prevention in Australia.

The evening was titled ‘Hero by Night’ and this year was themed upon the quote by Henry David Thoreau; “This world is but a canvas to our imagination”. 

The Foyer of Hackett Hall was transformed into a blank canvas whereby artists easils, living mannequins and a caricaturist created a colourful array of artistic entertainment.

Painting emotions to light up to room

Guests were invited to participate in painting a picture of an emotion they wish to avoid which highlighted the fact that there are many emotions in life that people find it difficult to speak about. Event Manager, Ashlee Harrison shared some interesting facts about the unspoken topic of suicide in Australia as well as her own reasons for becoming involved in this worthy cause. I was shocked to learn that suicide is the leading cause of death among those under 44 in Australia and realised just how important it is to spread the word about suicide prevention and support Zero2Hero in their mission.

Entertainment on stage included Danni Stefantetti, DJ Peter Francis and The Fit Simmers. This talented line-up set the mood for a well spirited crowd and a well occupied dance floor!

Guests were treated to a selection of cocktail food and drinks during the evening as well as the opportunity to bid to win some amazing prizes. 
All in all, the night was well organized, entertaining and definately a fun way to spend a warm Spring night in Perth whilst supporting a very worthwhile cause.
