Cranlana Event – 26 November 2016


The next Scarlet’s Fund event will be at Cranlana, Toorak on 26 November 2016 and we’d love your support.

Two years ago we gathered at Cranlana, Sidney Myer’s home to launch Scarlet’s Fund. This year, thanks to the generous hospitality of Sally Lindsay, we invite you to join us again for a night of music, wine and food to remember Scarlet and find out about the work of Scarlet’s Fund.

 6.00 pm – 9.00 pm

We are especially excited to be exhibiting a suite of prints created and generously donated by 18 well known Australian print makers in response to WH Auden’s poem Musée des Beaux Arts (a favourite of Scarlet’s). These will be available for sale, individually and as a set, on the night. A set of these will be presented to the new ICU department of the Royal Melbourne Hospital who cared for Scarlet before she died.

The Cranlana garden will be at its finest and the red carpet will be rolled out.

The numbers for this event are limited. To secure your place, please return the form below by 18 November. We welcome donations made directly to Scarlet’s Fund a sub-fund of Australian Communities Foundation.

You will receive a tax-deductible receipt from The Australian Communities Foundation for your donation and we shall acknowledge your attendance in writing in due course. Make a donation here ( and select Scarlet’s Fund in the drop down box.

Cranlana was built in 1903 but was substantially extended and remodelled around 1929. Russian-born Sidney Myer, who founded the Myer Emporium store, lived in Cranlana until his death in 1934, leaving his wife Dame Merlyn Myer sole proprietor until her death 48 years later in 1982. Cranlana continues to be owned, maintained and occasionally opened to the public for fundraising events by the Myer family. Cranlana is considered to be of social, aesthetic, cultural and architectural importance to the State of Victoria.
