Through the craziness of Mad March, we were thrilled to produce the Lord Mayors Student Welcome ft. the Melbourne Dumpling Festival for 2019
On the weekend of the 15th and 16th of March, Melbournians flocked to 206 Bourke Street to experience lots of delicious dumplings, engaging entertainment and a lane way bar for those to enjoy the atmosphere of the event.
Hosted by Riot Wine Co and alongside the Perfect Events team, the festival also held a SOLD OUT Dumpling and Wine Pairing Experience located on Level 1 of 206 Bourke street. Featuring some of Melbourne’s most scrumptious dumplings with over 50 varieties of dumplings that were on offer across the weekend from Tim Ho Wan, House of Delight, China Red, China Chilli and Dragon Boat.
From Bollywood Dancers on Friday night, a roving Silent Disco on Saturday and even a Bubble Tea drinking competition, Perfect Events has no limits. Thought-out the weekend there was live entertainment from our DJ on level 1, a ball pit for people to enter in the chance to win prizes and plenty of stallholders to engage guests in conversation about what Melbourne has to offer.
Not only was the festival about highlighting what 206 Bourke has to offer but also providing a safe and inclusive space for international students to connect and learn about Melbourne. Perfect Events love to enhance the knowledge of guests who attend our events and give to them a memorable experience in more ways than one. This is what drives us to do it all over again and get excited for the event.
We are passionate in bringing together the vision for our clients and executing the PERFECT event.

The lead up to Christmas is always an exciting time for children and families.
We were extremely excited when, earlier this year Barwon Health brought us on board to work on the 102nd Gala Day Parade. It was a great opportunity to work with a Geelong institution on an event that brings the entire community together.
On Saturday 10th November 2018, almost 30,000 people lined Malop Street to view 50 incredible floats that lit up Geelong across the twilight sky.
This annual event is remarkable as it brings together the community in a way that isn’t seen much anymore. Generations of families came along and traded stories of the different floats they’ve seen throughout the 102 years the parade has been running.
For the Perfect Events Team, working with the community, the supportive suppliers and the rush of seeing it all come together is what makes it worthwhile. Seeing the smiles on people’s faces and the joy it brings makes the late nights, long hours and tiring days all worthwhile.
This is the passion and precision we bring to everything we do and every challenge we take in our stride.
We hope to bring this passion and precision to your next event!

On Saturday 16th June 2018 at the Myer Mural Hall, we were lucky enough to have produced one of my most memorable events yet. Not only was it an evening to raise much needed funds, it was also a night of celebration for all of the hard work the team at TLC for Kids have done over the last 20 years.
TLC for Kids is an amazing charity that offers practical and immediate relief, support or distraction for any sick child and their family, referred by their healthcare provider. There are no waiting lists and most importantly no restrictive criteria. Over the last 20 years they have helped millions of children and their families and let me tell you, this is only the beginning.
Upon meeting Tim, the CEO and Founder and his partner in crime and TLC for Kids Executive Manager, Ana, I was swept off my feet at what these guys do. Hearing stories about different people they have met and some of the children that have come into their lives, you can’t help but feel incredibly grateful for what you have.
The evening started with guests greeted by a Chivas Regal cocktail and tasting station thanks to the team at Pernod Ricard. A magician roved through the crowed as guests sipped on champagne and enjoyed canapes.
When the time came for guests to find their seats, they were greeted by a room, hidden in the top of Myer, that is full of incredible history. History, that together with TLC for Kids, we were adding to.
Guests were taken on a journey throughout the night starting with a beautiful performance of ‘This Is Me’ from Adelaide Clark and students from Patrick Studios Australia. They watched clips that outlined some of the milestones in TLC for Kids 20-year history and helped raise funds through a raffle, a silent auction, live auction and pledges.
So many of TLC for Kids friends and supporters came together for a night that many will never forget. The evening was hosted by 3AW’s Justin Smith and the talented Brodie Young. We also enjoyed a performance from Louie Feltrin (The Robbie Williams Experience) and danced the night away to MC Matthew Charles, DJ Claire Elliot and Adelaide Clark.
The reality of what TLC for Kids does for families was brought to life by a beautiful, young girl, Elyssia. Elyssia’s parents, Emma and Adric, shared their story about how TLC for Kids have supported them since Elyssia was born prematurely with multiple medical complications. Elyssia, who is now an energetic 5 year old, stole the show by getting up on stage with almost every performer to show off her dance moves, singing and rapping skills and, of course, to thank everyone for coming.
In total we were able to help raise just over $100,000 for TLC for Kids. These funds will go towards not only helping children and families in our own backyard of Australia, but also to helping sick children and families in New Zealand.
As I said earlier, this is just the beginning for TLC for Kids. They are fighting and growing to help as many children and families as they can and we are so excited to be helping them take on the world.
