There’s a flurry of activity up at Batavia Hall today in preparation for tomorrow night’s Mitchell and Brown Midwest Charity Begins at Home annual gala dinner, as the hall is transformed into an Abrolhos Island theme.

His book BATAVIA is described as the greatest story in Australia’s history!

Local band Hester take to the stage later in the evening after a 3 course meal from Dalgleish Catering.

The cocktail hour at 6pm will be Abrolhos Islands through and through, with a seafood BBQ, crayfish and other options from Perry Minisale and Tarts & Co.  Me & The Missus will get the crowd started as the sun sets.

The night will feature raffles, silent auctions, major auctions, best dressed, Charity & Abrolhos Islands merchandise and much more!
