Celebrating 60 Years of the Australian of the Year Awards

  • 28 August 2019
To celebrate the launch of the 60th Anniversary of the Australian of the Year Awards in 2020, Auspire – Australia Day Council WA will host an Inspiring Australians Celebrating 60 Years event, featuring Ms Ita Buttrose, AC OBE.

After a trailblazing journalism, media and business career, at 77 Ita Buttrose is still a force to be reckoned with. Now Chair of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, she balances this high-profile position with several charitable roles including National Ambassador of Dementia Australia, Patron of the Macular Disease Foundation, Emeritus Director Arthritis Australia and Ambassador for Breast Cancer Network Australia.

As one of a handful of globally recognised, Australian female role models and high-achievers, and one of our most celebrated Australian of the Year recipients, the inimitable Ita has a story or two to tell. Many in fact who have heard her speak are the first to line up and hear from her again.

The event is on 24th October from 7am and tickets can be purchased from Eventbrite

The event is proudly supported by Bethanie, Western Australia’s leading aged care provider for seniors seeking to live well and retire into a welcoming and engaging community.

Auspire will hold a fundraising raffle on the day. Tickets are $10 each, 3 for $20 or 10 for $50
