Annual Man in Black Ball

The annual Men in Black Ball was held on June 25 2022 at Crown Towers.

The Men in Black Ball was launched in 2008, in support of men's mental health and suicide prevention. 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. 

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.

Annual International Women's Day Luncheon

The annual International Women's Day Luncheon celebrated its 16th Anniversary on the 25th of March 2022 at Crown Towers Perth.

The event commemorates women's progress and achievements in Australia and raises awareness of domestic violence, in support of the "Kiss Violence Against Women Goodbye!" campaign.

According to a report by the Australian Bureau of Criminology, almost one in ten women who live with a partner have experienced physical domestic violence within the span of three months. Furthermore, 1 in 6 women have experienced abuse from a partner since the age of 15. The event empowers women to find inner strength and fight against domestic abuse.

This signature event includes testimonial speakers, award presentations, a fashion parade, a 3-course gourmet luncheon, and a charity live auction and raffle.

Previous award winners include:

Ita Buttrose, Constance Hall, Professor Helen Milroy, Vanessa Vershaw and Alannah Hill.

Annual Pink Ribbon Ball

The Pink Ribbon Ball is celebrating its 19th Anniversary on Saturday the October 2022 at Crown Towers. Since 2003 the Pink Ribbon Ball has supported 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 700 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 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. Watch her speech below.
