Heart of St Kilda Concert

A huge thank you to everyone who came along to the Heart of St Kilda Concert at the Palais Theatre on Tuesday 6 September. What a night!  It was an incredible evening – one of the best and biggest yet, with so many fabulous performances from an eclectic mix of artists. The audience was wonderful … enthusiastic, supportive and keen to have fun. There was a great spirit in the auditorium – a sense of unity and community– it really felt like everyone was right behind Sacred Heart Mission.

The concert raised much needed funds that will supply over 20,000 hot and nutritious meals for people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGaY_o_hQew

We had more attendees than last year and made more on both the raffle and via donations – a big thank you to everyone who contributed!
