Glam with the Governor

In a Government House first, animals will mingle with guests at an official function at Tasmania’s historic Government House next month. But the furry visitors will be more than special and popular guests – event patrons will have the chance to adopt them.

Her Excellency Professor The Honourable Kate Warner, AC, Governor of Tasmania is hosting a special fundraising cocktail party to benefit RSPCA Tasmania on Wednesday 29 March from 5.30pm.

Guests will have the chance to meet Her Excellency; enjoy fine food and wine; listen to live music from Hobart locals Yesterday’s Gentlemen; participate in an auction and raffle, and meet and potentially adopt one of the RSPCA animals attending the event.

Several animals from RSPCA Tasmania will be joining RSPCA staff and guests - an innovation for Government House.

Her Excellency the Governor of Tasmania and our CEO

RSPCA Tasmania CEO Peter West says the charity is thrilled to be hosted by Her Excellency at such an iconic venue.

Governor Warner is our very committed and enthusiastic patron so we are pleased and proud that Her Excellency has chosen the state’s most prolific animal welfare charity to be the beneficiary of this prestigious event.

Many in the community have not been inside Government House so this is a fantastic opportunity to support RSPCA’s many and varied animal welfare activities while enjoying the wonderful food and wine, the unique company of two and four-legged friends and the ambience of the house and grounds.

It will be a truly unique event. We’re hoping that the community will seize this chance to enjoy a unique social experience and at the same time raise much needed funds to continue to help us help Tasmanian animals.

It’s also a wonderful opportunity for business owners to reward their staff and clients with invitations to this unique event, especially those who have never visited Government House.

The main event will take place in the house’s iconic ballroom, with access to the one of the finest examples of Victorian-era private gardens in Australia.
