Rock Off MND Fundraising Gala

  • Saturday 11 May 2024 | 6.30PM
  • President’s Room, GMHBA Stadium
  • $180 per head includes a three-course dinner and four hours of complimentary beer, wine and bubbles.

Helping raise vital awareness and research funds for Motor Neurone Disease, Rock Off MND is a cause dear to the Geelong region, spawning from an annual music festival held at Geelong’s house of rock ‘n’ roll, The Barwon Club Hotel.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Rock Off MND was inspired by Jenny Simko after she was diagnosed with MND in August 2014. Jen was pivotal in leading the charge to finding a cure for the disease through live music events. Whilst Jen sadly passed away in November 2015 she was able to attend the first event to see her vision and legacy come to fruition.

The Gala Dinner on Saturday 11 May is a much classier affair than the BC days, but in true Rock Off MND fashion, the event would not be complete without the appearance of live music.

Two acts will grace the stage across the night; Mr Meaner, and Lisa Hanley.

Mr Meaner are bound by the music with the group of talented musicians coming together to play for the love of music and the live show. Their infectious party rock, dance and classic song repertoire is set to have the crowd going.

Lisa Hanley is an acoustic artists best known for serenading newly weds across the region. Her larger-than-life vocals are sure to echo across the stadium.
