Last Saturday 17th Nov was host to The Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s Starry Starry Night 15th annual gala ball; where some of the biggest names in Australian television, sport and entertainment came together (along with many fake tans) to raise more than $600,000 for the foundation’s work in keeping children safe from violence and bullying.
When I mention the biggest names in sport were attending, of course KX Pilates was there, being one of the night’s silver sponsors. Arriving in questionable stretch-Hummer style, the management team (and partners) were thrilled to swap training attire to black tie and represent our amazing company for what was a great night.
We were also lucky enough to have the ever so gorgeous Rachael Finch and fiance and dance extraordinaire Michael Miziner as guests on our table. A lot of fun was had and of course after only a few hours they were already KX converts who cannot wait for KX Pilates to get to Sydney (we may even have out first Sydney KX ambassador, fingers crossed)! It was also great to run into KX Ambassador Scherri-Lee Biggs and long time clients Georgia Sinclair and Amy Tabart, who all looked amazing.
When the opportunity to pledge on the big screen was given I couldn’t resist getting the KX name out there. After the attempt to donate any of the beautiful KX women on our table was knocked back (I couldn’t believe it either!), $1,500 was kindly accepted by the foundation along with a lot of laughs.
Thank you to all for coming – Eli and Tim, Eliza and Nick, Amie and Duncan, Chris and Beck, and to my beautiful partner Andi. Huge congratulations must go to KX Client Emma Black who ran the night brilliantly and without fail. Lastly, thanks must also go out to all of our amazing KX clients, as without you nights like these just wouldn’t happen for us. Thank you for allowing us to do what we love (training you that is, not drinking at Crown Palladium on Saturday nights; although that is also quite fun)!
Train hard, eat clean and we’ll chat next week.
