BRISBANE, Australia -  ‘A night at the theatre’ was the theme for Hilton Brisbane’s annual ‘Tenners Dinner’ held on Thursday 2 December 2010. The ‘Tenners’ dinner is a celebration of team members who have more than ten years of service with Hilton Hotels & Resorts.

Forty-four Hilton Brisbane team members with 790 combined years of service form what is known as the ‘Tenners Club.’ The ‘Tenners Club’ welcomed special guests Ashley Spencer, vice president operations Australasia, who commenced with Hilton in 1987 in the UK and Brendan Toomey, regional director human resources, who started in 1981. Everyone was treated to a night of drama, comedy and musical theatre as Hilton Brisbane created a memorable experience for the long serving team members.

Keeping with the theatrical theme, the night was split into three acts. Act one showcased a rockabilly band who entertained guests during pre-dinner drinks and canapés, followed by act two which included an operatic performance by a singing chef who serenaded guests with classic opera such as ‘Mi Amore.’ Mystery and intrigue was the theme for act three which featured a magician who delighted and involved all guests with his captivating and thrilling theatrics. The night was complemented by a specially designed menu that highlighted Queensland’s abundant and award-winning produce.

Each guest received a Hilton bathrobe with their name specially embroidered. Hilton Brisbane General Manager Martin Kendall commented, ‘We always look forward to hosting the annual ‘Tenners Dinner,’ it’s an opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of our long standing team members. This year was a wonderful evening of theatre where our team members were the stars of the show. The night was further complimented by the fine food and entertainment; we look forward to welcoming new editions to the ‘Tenners Club’ in 2011!’
