Raising vital funds so school chaplains can
continue supporting youth and children in Queensland

Frontline Chaplaincy Appeal Dinner


Monday 21 October 2019

Sir Leslie Thiess Dr

For over 26 years, our children and young people have been supported by a team of passionate, dedicated, hope-filled people. Our chaplains have served faithfully and we celebrate their achievements and look to continue supporting them as they work with Queensland’s young people in the years ahead.

The Frontline Chaplaincy Appeal Dinner will be an evening of spectacular entertainment, wonderful company and delicious food.

Most importantly, you’ll hear inspirational stories from students and chaplains on the ‘frontline’ of our schools. You will also have the opportunity to invest in this vital initiative to support the social, emotional and spiritual needs of our children. 

You can impact young lives for many more generations to come.

Chang Po Ching

Keynote Speaker and Entertainer

Queenslander singer and performer, Chang Po Ching, is perhaps best known for his stellar performances on this year’s ‘The Voice’ on Channel 9. But his career as a professional singer and performer began almost a decade ago. Growing up in a musical family, Chang’s musical versatility has been shaped by jazz and the music of Motown.

Chang’s passion for music is rivalled only by his work with troubled youth at the Brisbane Juvenile Detention Centre. As a young man, Chang learned to overcome his own personal struggles around self-image and esteem. In his own words, he knows what it feels like ‘to be different’. You won’t want to miss his powerful story and his soulful melodies.

Hosting a table at the Frontline
Chaplaincy Appeal Dinner, Townsville

Guests generally are invited by a Table Host, who has generously committed to inviting a table of 10 to attend the dinner and are people who are passionate about the work chaplains do in schools and want to see children supported and nurtured as the grow.

There is no up front ticket fee for attending the Frontline Appeal Dinner. Generally guests are invited to make a donation at the end of the evening that would not only cover the cost of their meal but also generously support the work of chaplaincy across the State.  Guests can specifically direct their gift to support their local chaplain and school.

5 simple steps to hosting a table:

1. Confirm you can host a table with Libbie Kutuzov on 0438 154 641 or Christy Marhin on 0450 376 748

2. Make a list of colleagues who you would like to invite to the Dinner.
A table is made up of 10 people. Make it clear to your colleagues that while the dinner is provided free of charge compliments of SU QLD, this is a fundraising dinner to improve the lives of Queensland youth. So please invite those with a capacity to give generously on the night.

3. Invite these people to the Dinner by 15 September using the Frontline brochure.

4. As each of your guests confirm their attendance, email their contact details to Libbie Kutuzov.
They will be sent the relevant event information. We will need their names and email addresses, and, if possible their postal addresses and phone numbers. Again, please pass on each individual’s details as they confirm with you—don’t wait until you have a full table.

5. All guests will receive a confirmation reminder before the event.


Your gift will make a real difference for children and young people.
