Photos from the 14th Annual Moonlight Magic Dinner Dance

On Friday 25 August 2017, Micah Projects held the 14th Annual Moonlight Magic Dinner Dance in the Plaza Ballroom at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Moonlight Magic Dinner Dance is a community event where guests include business leaders, residents of Level 3 Supported Accommodation, elected officials, people who have experienced homelessness and a broad range of people from the community, nearly half of all who experience economic disadvantage and social isolation on a daily basis. This event breaks down barriers and seeks to build a more connected Brisbane community through the enjoyment of dressing up, fine food, music and dance.

The event has grown beyond expectations from 200 attendees in 2004 to over 800 this year.
