“Let your Ability shine”


The 2023 Annual Foundation Dinner, supported by Diamond Sponsor Bradcorp, took place at The Cube, Campbelltown Catholic Club on Saturday, 9 September, and was a fantastic night. It commenced with our ‘Mater Dei Marvels’ in action, utilising their special abilities to help Batman solve a crime.

The Mater Dei choir were our star performers of the night, who sung “One Call Away” and Key Word signed “Heroes”. They were followed by Dance Troupe performing “Confident”.

With thanks to our Entertainment Sponsors Camden Hire and Wests Group Macarthur we were fortunate to have Tim Campbell as co-MC, along with surprise Guest Entertainer Anthony Callea.

This year the goal was to raise funds to refurbish the Outdoor Learning Environment for Mater Dei Preschool, with guest speaker Pamela Templeton, Director of Early Childhood Education. sharing her extensive journey within the education and disability space.

We are truly fortunate to have a dedicated committee who devote so much time and energy behind the scenes. Chaired by Jim Marsden OAM, John Adam, Kevin O’Keefe, Kristen Green, Greg Copeland, Bryson Shafer, Tim Knapp and Nadine Fitzpatrick.

We would like to express our gratitude to the 550 guests who attended and contributed to such an incredible evening. Special thanks also to the State Government and the Campbelltown Catholic Club for their generous donations.


The Foundation Dinner would not be possible without the support of our Sponsors.
