Wishlist Spring Carnival: a winning formula of elegance and glamour, a fabulous three-course menu, first-class celebrity entertainment and amazing auction prizes to raise significant funds for wishlist to support the sunshine coast's rapidly growing health services.
Since 2009 the annual Wishlist Spring Carnival has grown in reputation, quality and wow factor to become known as the Sunshine Coast social event of the year.
Hosts have included Natalie Barr, Mark Beretta, Samantha Armytage, Yvonne Sampson and Todd Widdicombe.
The prestigious event has attracted entertainment such as former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, singer Damien Leith, Justice Crew, singer Mahalia Barnes and a fashion show in 2013 led by model and TV personality Annalise Braakensiek featuring the clothing of international fashion designer Jayson Brunsdon. Hair stylist to the stars Joh Bailey acted as MC for the 2013 fashion show, and returned again in 2014 to add his colourful personality to the mix. 2014 welcomed Rob Mills and magician, Matt Hollywood.
