22/04/2014
Almost $85,000 was raised through the support of sponsors, community partners, volunteers, prize donors and auction buyers.

On Saturday 15 February, Alinta Energy employees from Flinders Operations donned their finery and headed bush for the Wilpenia Under the Stars Gala Ball.


Alinta Energy has been a major sponsor of the event for over ten years, and all proceeds of the evening are donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. This year almost $85,000 was raised through sponsorships, community partners, volunteers, prize donors and auction buyers.



The unique black tie event featured a traditional welcome from land owners the Adnyamathanha people, some of the State’s best food and wine, entertainment by Aussie singer Deni Hines, giveaways, auctions and dancing. All proceeds will directly benefit Royal Flying Doctor Service capital-raising program to replace aircraft and medical equipment, in order to keep their medical crews in the sky.



In addition to supporting this regional event in South Australia, Alinta Energy has also launched a national sponsorship of the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With more than half of Alinta Energy’s people living and working in regional communities, the Royal Flying Doctor Service plays an essential role in providing a local healthcare service to many of these towns. Alinta Energy is proud to support the Royal Flying Doctor Service, to help continue providing an aeromedical health service for regional Australia.
