It isn’t every day you come across someone like Dani Fitch.
The Miss World Australia contestant made waves when she hosted Variety the Children’s Charity Gala last weekend at the Pullman Sydney Hyde Park hotel to raise money for a worthy cause.
Variety the Children’s Charity have worked for 40 years to improve the lives of sick, disabled and disadvantaged Australian children and their families. With the support and generosity of people like Dani, Variety provides financial assistance, logistical support and the opportunity to engage in community engagement programs to children in need all across Australia. As part of Miss World’s Beauty with a Purpose campaign, Dani has sought to raise funds for the charity, with over $8,500 raised before the gala began.
Held in inner Sydney, the charity gala welcomed those from all walks of life onto the red carpet for an evening of fine dining, drinks, and entertainment. In a glittering gown teamed with a dazzling smile, Dani ensured the night was filled with music and laughter while being a testament to the incredible works and commitments made by Variety.
By the end of the night, Dani had raised over $11,000 for Variety the Children’s Charity – an incredible feat for one individual.
When we caught up with Dani at the end of the night, she had this kind message for her supporters.
“From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank the guests, models Sarah Halloran, Silka Kurzak, Alexandra Britton, Nichhia Wippell, Briden Starr, Shannon Richardson and the fantastic sponsors involved In making this spectacular night a huge success!
