The National Premiere was held at the beautiful and historic Rivoli Theater in Hawthorn East Melbourne. This heritage listed Art Deco building was the perfect setting for a fun and intimate get together for many long-time supporters of Christina's and the Foundation.
It was a fanastic opportunity for the guests to hear Christina speak and also mix and mingle with her and her daughter Helenita after the screening whilst enjoying some fabulous Vietnamese Street Food and drinks.
Similar Premiere screenings were also held in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth during the following week, it was a whirlwind tour with radio interviews and even an appearance on Weekend Sunrise.
By far the highlight of the trip for Christina was meeting all of the long-term and new supporters. Meeting up with many people who had supported the Foundation in Australia in the early days through to people who have volunteered in Australia, Ireland, Vietnam and Mongolia.
We would like to make a very special thanks to the wonderful teams on the ground in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth for organising great local events. In particular, Juliana Hunt, Trish Smyth and Gayle & Andy Hendrycks. They all did an outstanding job in hosting their local city Premiere's.
