Arnott's Foundation Gala Ball back for 2017
For the past eight years The Arnott’s Foundation have organised and hosted Gala Balls that have been a highlight of Sydney's social calander. These events are the Foundation's biggest fundraising occasions, bringing guests together for a night of memorable entertainment, delicious food and exceptional service. Each Gala Ball raises much-needed funds to support our essential programs and services.
In 2016, The Arnott’s Foundation Gala Ball raised an amazing $402,000 with 700 guests attending! The event has grown each year, attracting large organisations and celebrities to be a part of the spectacular night.
This year the event aims to raise over $350,000 to fund 23 Camp Quality Family Camps. Our Family Camps offer families living with cancer the chance for a weekend escape, an opportunity to reconnect, have fun and relax.
The camps cater for the whole family at no cost. Everyone gets to join in the fun. Kids-only activities are also scheduled, so parents have a chance to unwind too.
The relaxing and supportive environment is also an opportunity to meet and talk with other parents and children going through similar experiences and build strength through solidarity.
Family camps provide a break from the stresses of home and hospital, a getaway designed to help the whole family recharge, reduce stress, and increase resilience and the ability to cope.
This year's Arnott's Foundation Gala Ball is already sold out, but you can still join in on the fun with the Gala Ball Giant Raffle! The money raised through the raffle supports our work with kids on the cancer journey, and their families.
There are some amazing prizes up for grabs, including a VW Polo 66TSI Trendline, a BOSE Lifestyle 650 Home Entertainment System and tickets to the Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas Cruise for two. Visit the Gala Ball Giant Raffle website to purchase your raffle tickets.
