News & Events

The Cocktail party in PNG this year was generously hosted by Curtain Bros. The event was a great success and raised much needed funds for the organisation.

Buk bilong Pikinini was lucky to have the beautiful Alyson Joyce (pictured) entertain at our Fairytale evening under the stars and a fantastic decoration done by the BbP Friends group.

The next event will be in Canberra and will be an Evening of Italian Opera and Song hosted by the Italian Ambassador HE Pier Francesco Zazo on the 11th of October. It is a black tie event and tickets can be booked from our Canberra Office.
