Pink Ribbon Gala Ball

in support of breast cancer awareness and research

The Pink Ribbon Ball is celebrating its 21st anniversary on Saturday 23rd November 2024 at Crown Towers. Since 2003, the Pink Ribbon Ball has been instrumental in creating awareness and raising funds for breast cancer awareness and research. 

 

Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer, with 20,000 people diagnosed last year. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 7 women and 1 in 600 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

The rate of breast MRI tests has doubled in the past 10 years, correlating with a 36% increase in breast cancer diagnosis. If detected and treated early, the five-year survival rate of breast cancer is 91%. Therefore, we aim to raise awareness and urge women to get regular tests, in order to decrease the number of deaths caused by breast cancer.

The Pink Ribbon Ball has been hosted by high-profile media personalities including Adrian Barich, Samantha Jolly, Tina Alteri, Tim Gossich, Kymba Cahill, and Sam Mac.

The program on the night includes a 3-course banquet dinner, live entertainment, a charity live auction and raffle, testimonial speakers, and a Belle of the Ball competition.

At the 2020 ball, inspiring testimonial speaker Monika Page shared her breast cancer journey and urged people to get regular check-ups.

Men in Black Ball

in support of Men's Mental Health

The Men in Black Ball was held on June 25th 2022 at Crown Towers celebrating it's 15th anniversary. 

The Men in Black Ball was launched in 2008, in support of men's mental health and suicide prevention. The Men in Black Ball aims to make a difference to worthy causes including men's mental health and suicide prevention through awareness campaigns, programs and events. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women. They are less likely to seek help for mental health conditions than women. 

To date, the Men in Black Ball has played a significant role in sparking conversation and reducing the stigma surrounding men's mental health. MIB is a must-see celebration of numerous people who have overcome their own struggles, and are able to use their experiences to help others by opening up and speaking out.

This signature black-tie event includes testimonial speakers, award presentations, 3-course gourmet dinner, live entertainment, and charity live auction and raffle.


Previous speakers and award winners include Tim Marney, Daniel Kerr, Damien Martin, Leon Ruri, Eric Ripper, Dr. George O'Neil, Soa "The Hulk" Palelei, Andrew Krakouer and Anthony Mundine.
