Sultry Jazz, Fabulous Food for a Perfect Sunset Vibe

An exclusive cocktail menu designed by Adelaide’s hottest new Celebrity Chef is just one example of the generosity shown by the Adelaide business community in supporting World Youth International for the 11th annual Jazz in the Park event, to be held at Rymill Island on Friday the 10th of December.

Recently elected Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood became a patron of the event earlier this year, recognising the incredible work of this inspirational South Australian story. The Lord Mayor will officially welcome those lucky enough to snag a ticket.

Chef Dennis Leslie from The Brasserie, Hilton Adelaide, recently featured on Po’s Kitchen and is set to become a familiar face among the culinary elite. His sumptuous menu will be served with an array of enticing South Australian wines and beverages donated by the event’s many supporters.

Sultry jazz sounds by Jazz SA Youth Group Daniel Clohesy's Quartet and the enigmatic Lucifer's Lounge will roll over the island, creating a perfect sunset vibe.

This intimate and exclusive event held on Rymill Island has already attracted a string of Adelaide business and social identities ready to kick of the silly season in style to support this fantastic local charity and relax in the summer twilight.

“We have been blown away by the generosity and support of the Adelaide business community,” says Taren Hocking, Director of event organiser Champion Events.

“They have come together in the most cooperative way to not only make this a night to remember, but to demonstrate their commitment to making a difference in the world by helping WYI and the thousands of lives transformed through their aid programs.

“Limited tickets are still available so gather your colleagues, clients and friends to celebrate Christmas whilst helping our young South Australians change the lives of some of the poorest communities in the world.”

Attendance fees will directly help people like 23-year-old Kate Barker from Rostrevor. Kate is heading off to Peru in June 2011 and says, “I have always had a passion for travel and, combined with my study in international relations and interest in development, I believe this is an incredible opportunity to further my personal and professional skills and make difference to other people’s lives.”

Kate will join a team of youth volunteers based in a small community just out of Cusco for five weeks. Previous WYI Peru projects include income generating initiatives such as the building and development of a Weaving Centre, which provides material and training to enable local women to start their own micro-business.

World Youth international

World Youth International Australia (WYI) is a not for profit, non?religious and non?political international development organisation that offers people over 18 the opportunity to volunteer overseas in a meaningful way.

Founded in 1988 by the late Robert Hoey, WYI has continued to grow from strength to strength. After the sudden passing of Robert in 1996 from meningitis, the Hoey family left their chosen careers, united as a family and chose to fulfil his dream to build schools and orphanages across the globe. Today, WYI has built three magnificent children’s homes and a school with over 400 children in attendance.

World Youth International Manager Mr Terry Hoey said, “The Jazz in the Park event is integral in raising much needed funds for World Youth International (WYI) projects, specifically the WYI School in Nepal.”

Opened in 1999, it was the first Australian built school in Nepal and after 11 years the number of students has increased from 24 to over 400 and the school has been credited with an A rating from the Nepalese government, meaning all 400 students have an A+ grade average.
