Arnott’s Gala Ball a success for 9th year running
Guests to the annual Arnott’s Gala Ball this year entered a Magical Wonderland at the Star Event Centre on Friday 24th February.
The event, hosted by Arnott’s patron Catriona Rowntree, was a magnificent night of food and entertainment, including performances by Tim Campbell, live auction by Andrew Morello and the ED5 International dancers.
The incredible moment of the night however was undoubtedly when the audience of 736 heard from Camp Quality family, the Rollinsons. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Luke Rollinson gave a moving speech about his family’s cancer experience with his wife Katie by his side.
Their story of having to face the unthinkable - that Luke’s family history of cancer would touch not just one, but both their young children – the second child in the most terrifying of ways, reminded everyone in the room why Arnott’s Gala Ball is so important. Luke recounted what day to day life is like for this family, always hoping that a monthly check up will not turn into another piece of devastating news.
It was not until Camp Quality Family Camp that the Rollinsons got the chance to reconnect as a family and meet others in similar situations. With a strong emphasis placed on family values, Arnott’s Foundation has been a proud national sponsor of our Family Camps since 2008.
Thanks to everyone who supported the evening, meaning over 500 families will get this valuable opportunity to build their resilience and positivity, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
A special mention to the Arnott’s Foundation who worked tirelessly all year to make the Gala Ball a stunning success as well as their support on other events and projects. We are very proud of the partnership between the Arnott’s Foundation and Camp Quality and we can’t wait for the 10th year celebration next year!
