2016 Ceva Bain Fallon Dinner at the Melbourne Aquarium

Every year for over 15 years Ceva (formerly Nature Vet) has hosted the Tuesday night Causal dinner at the Equine Veterinarians Australia (EVA) Bain Fallon Conference.

This dinner has always been a highlight of the conference and Nature Vet consistently hosted top quality entertainment including magic shows, comedians and live bands such as Dragon. Ceva has continued this tradition and 2016 was no exception.

The dinner was held at the Melbourne Aquarium where guests entered the dining area via the spectacular underwater viewing tunnel where sharks and huge sting rays swam overhead. Six vets were lucky enough to win the chance to ‘swim with the sharks’. The EVA President Dr Ian Fulton and others had a unique experience scuba diving in the tank with the sharks and rays while the rest of us enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the underwater viewing room.

During drinks guests were treated to a classical music performance from Grace Gilkerson on cello and Evie Mathews on the violin. Grace is the daughter of Professor James Gilkerson, a very well-known equine vet who is a Past President of the EVA.

Guests then moved into the dining area, past a 4m salt water croc where they enjoyed a spectacular view of the Yarra river front. During the evening guests were treated to the Crown Gas Brigade evening show where eight towers along Southbank shoot fireballs into the sky. During dinner the Ceva Education Scholarship was awarded and following dinner guests all had a great time dancing. Many veterinarians came and thanked us for the evening which was a great success.
