The 4th annual Aussie Down Under Charity Ball 2015, held on April 18th at Moscow’s Radisson Royal Hotel Ukraina, was a phenomenal success!

The hotel’s opulent interiors immediately set the mood for an unprecedented evening; while kangaroo projections leaping across the walls added the finishing Aussie touches.

The guest of honour this year was Australian boxing legend Kostya Tzu and his lovely wife Tanya.

Gabe, the Aussie cowboy was in fine form as always, showing his MC-ing and auctioneering prowess as well as performing classic Australian rock with renowned Aussie musician David Peachey.

The menu touted succulent Australian lamb, proudly supplied by MLA.

Amongst the multitude of prizes offered; the charity raffle also displayed the traditional Lotus BBQ grill by Kostya Tzu, the ‘Aussie Survival Pack’, comprising a Techni-Ice cooler box, full of Aussie goodies and genuine Aussie Blundstone boots. While the auction offered Aboriginal paintings and a boomerang.

Breaking last year’s record once again, the evening raised 3.7 million roubles for ‘BBBS Russia’ – Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program helps Russia’s forgotten children to assimilate social skills and responsibilities, preparing them for adulthood.
