Honour Awards set to get sweeter in 2018


The Honour Awards is set to become a sweet affair in 2018, thanks to the support of award-winning cupcake specialist, Black Velvet Sydney.  

Now in its 12th year, the Honour Awards is an event that celebrates outstanding service to, and achievements within, the LGBTI community in NSW and Australia. Aside from recognising inspirational individuals and organisations, the Honour Awards is also a fundraising event for AIDS Council of New South Wales, with all funds raised going back to the community through ACON’s LGBTI health programs and services.

Black Velvet Sydney has signed up as an Event Partner for this year’s Honour Awards. Sydney’s favourite designer cupcake store will supply the delicious cupcakes at this year’s event at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Wednesday 3 October. They will also donate a prize to the silent auction.

“Black Velvet Sydney is excited to be part of this year’s Honour Awards as an event partner,” said Black Velvet Sydney owner Luke Wallace. “We’re proud to be part of this event that is celebrating the many wonderful achievements of heroes in the LGBTI community.”

Acting ACON CEO Karen Price said that the support of Black Velvet Sydney will add extra flair to this year’s Honour Awards and, more importantly, help with efforts to raise funds for ACON’s LGBTI programs and initiatives.

“We’re grateful for the support of Black Velvet Sydney for the 2018 Honour Awards.”

“Honour is about shining a light on the dynamic spirit of the LGBTI community, and the contributions of businesses and services go a long way in ensuring it’s a wonderful and inspiring event.”

“By coming along to the Honour Awards, community members, their friends and associates can be part of this celebration and, at the same time, raise money to help ACON continue its important work in the community.”
