Walsh Bay Arts and Commerce Events

Celebrate ATYP as we kick off our countdown to move with an 80’s themed fundraiser!

As ATYP prepares to leave our Wharf home of 20 years, we are throwing the biggest party Pier 4/5 has ever seen! Money raised through tickets and on the night will go towards funding more ATYP WORKSHOP SCHOLARSHIPS in 2018. Workshop scholarships are a vital part of ATYP programs and they provide young people with access to awesome programs they otherwise would not be able to attend. 

Donations made to ATYP on the night or through our ticketing system for this event will be eligible for matched funds by the Macquarie Group Foundation.

The Final Countdown will be a celebration of all things 80s, as well as all things ATYP. Get ready for trivia, games, dinner, drinks, smash 80’s hits from a live band, special guests and loads more!

Supported by the City of Sydney and Optimiste Wines.



*The ticket price for The Final Countdown fundraising event includes a market value of benefits that exceed the allowable ATO tax deductible contribution for fundraising events. According to the ATO for a contributor to claim a tax-deductible contribution, the benefit they receive must be no more than 20% of the value of the contribution or $150, whichever is less. Unfortunately, in this situation the benefit is valued at well over the 20% threshold and therefore we cannot provide our supporters with a tax deductible receipt for a donation.
