I've just seen this online. Sounds like fun. said:
Global Entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, Queensland Premier The Hon. Peter Beattie and Virgin Blue Co-founding CEO Brett Godfrey announce Virgin Blue's Black Tie 'Hangar Ball'.

Join Richard, The Premier, Brett and other celebrities at this spectacular charity event and opening of Virgin Blue's new $25-million Brisbane hangar. Virgin Blue parties are legendary, but have never before been open to the public. Celebrating Virgin Blue's commitment to aviation infrastructure in Queensland, for the first time since its launch, Virgin Blue will throw open the doors and offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to party in true Virgin Blue style.

This is no ordinary event. Think cocktails and canapés under a big red jet, menu by multi-award winning celebrity chef Alistair McLeod and Bretts Wharf, awesome auction prizes - name a Virgin Blue jet after a loved one, international holidays and other ‘money can't normally buy’ experiences. Or just sip champagne under the stars and dance the night away into the early hours.

Hosted by Getaway presenter, Catriona Rowntree, the evening will feature an exclusive performance by one of Australia's premier bands, world class entertainment and will raise some serious money for some truly worthwhile causes.

What: The Virgin Blue 'Hangar Ball'
Where: Virgin Blue Hangar Brisbane Airport
When: Saturday 5 August 2006 - 6.30pm pre-dinner drinks
Dress: Black tie for winter
Price: $2,500 for table of 10 Guests

What a coincidence, we are in BNE for AFF's Inaugural Golf Challenge that weekend. Most of us would be available if you have trouble finding the other 9 guests Peter. ;)

I happen to be in Brisbane on 5th August. Who are the recipient charities?

Or just sip champagne under the stars and dance the night away into the early hours.
Are they charging extra for a roof?

And if the hangar is air side, are 'guests' all going to need an ASIC? :mrgreen:
