The proceeds will be donated to the Cerebral Palsy Alliance of Australia.
Organiser and fellow entertainer Toni Stevens said tickets are on sale for the event which will bring together some of Australia’s most famous performers as well as dedicated fans of Dame Vera Lynn.
“Everything at the function will be focusing on the age Dame Vera will be turning on the day … 100, including the number of tickets on sale so people have to get in quickly to book,”she said.
“This will be an amazing and unique commemorative day that shouldn’t be missed.”
