Get On Stage Fundraiser

Get on Stage 2012

Friday June 1st is the date for Get On Stage 2012! If you would like to be involved either as a sponsor, volunteer or a guest, please contact Alison RIchardson on 8839 3359 or email

In November 2009 a group of local Parramatta business people led by Rod Morrissey of NAB and Riyad Tayeh of deVries Tayeh formed a committee to raise funds to help people with a disability engage fully in the performing arts at Riverside Theatres. The three course luncheon is held on the main stage at Riverside and is a highly anticipated annual event in the Western Sydney business calendar. Guests participate in raffles, a live auction and a silent auction – all in support of Beyond the Square (formally known as WAPD).

Get on Stage is about the celebration of ability and the potential for individual change & growth through the furthering of opportunities and also the potential for societal change through awareness raising of the rights and also achievements of people with a disability amongst the wider community.
