Join us for a magical evening of fine food, entertainment and fabulous auctions as we transform Sydney Town Hall into a winter wonderland and help raise vital funds needed for essential cancer medical research.
The Winter Cancer Charity Ball will be supported by Kolling Foundation, Royal North Shore Hospital and Northern Sydney Local Health District.
The Ball will be the key annual fundraiser for three worthy beneficiaries - Bill Walsh Translational Cancer Research Laboratory, The Royal North Shore Hospital's Tomorrow Trust and Northern Sydney Cancer Centre.
Together, these organisations provide support and empower people who are living with, through and beyond cancer to live fulfilled lives.
