Join Us...

Join us for a fabulous night of ARIA award winning live entertainment, a mega raffle and more as we raise money to build the extension to STEPS Pathways College and change lives for young people living with disability.

STEPS are taking the bold move of hosting a virtual gala event. Bringing a star-studded line up, including ARIA award winning pop group Sheppard, one of Australia’s most loved and respected recording artists – Anthony Callea and the fabulous singer and actor Tim Campbell, the fabulous Paulini returns for a consecutive year, together with a mega raffle, dance performance by the Sunshine Dance Troupe, trivia and more to raise vital funds for young adults living with disability. Guests will be emailed a link on the Friday before the event, which allows them to join the Ball online from their smart TV, Laptop, iPad or mobile phone, allowing guests to enjoy the night from the comfort of their living room via Livestream Platform.

The goal is to raise $100,000 which will fund the extension of the STEPS Pathways College to meet our growing demands. This two story unit will accommodate four boarding program students and will be built as an extension to the existing Murphy House building.

Home hospitality packages* are available which will be delivered to you from local restaurants Brouhaha Brewery and Bella Venezia on the Sunshine Coast and Chez Nous in Brisbane, who are all long term supporters of STEPS and we welcome the opportunity to give back and support them.

*Delivery on Sunshine Coast is between Bribie Island and Cooroy and in Brisbane a 5km radius of West End.
