We're calling for a stint of porridge for Perth's well to do! If you are a top executive, community leader, politician, government official or other 'infamous' identify, you're nicked mate! It's a fair cop guvnor to raise much needed funds for Diabetes Research WA and Cystic Fibrosis WA as well as other charity organisations.
Perth's most unique cocktail party, raising funds for great charities.
It's the annual fundraising event held at Fremantle prison where you will be convicted and sentenced to a night of fun, food and entertainment. Said VIP's, personalities, and other nefarious individuals will be locked up and must raise bail to secure their release.
Take a look at these mug shots from last years event!
Each convict gets to set their own bail as a fun-raising target. Two good reasons not to set a low bail:
1. The aim of the event this year is to raise $120,000 and 2. Why would you want to be released from Perth's most unique cocktail party? You'll be institutionalised with catered finger foods and canapés and entertainment by Ellandar productions. What are you desperate enough to do to remain inside?
Your date with the old bill is 7th November 2015, 7pm-11pm and admission is $30 including canapes and a cash bar. There is also a VIP option for $120 that additionally includes an open bar. Go here to turn yourself in, but better act quickly as tickets are strictly limited to 500. After the tickets are sold, your only remaining option is to go sewer crawling Shawshank redemption style.
Dress up as your favourite Famous Convict, whether it's Hugh Grant, Wynona Ryder, or a 50 cent gangster. If you are stuck for inspiration go here. You're in for a fun, charitable night, with a few surprises along the way.
