The BrainChild Ball
Each year The BrainChild Ball takes guests to an exotic location for a night of glamour, discovery, taste and adventure all in the name of fundraising and awareness.
The BrainChild Ball was founded by Victoria Fitzgerald following the diagnosis and treatment of her daughter Abigail (our 2016 BrainChild).
And every year we share the story of a child who has experienced brain cancer – our BrainChild. Their journeys highlight the struggle of life with childhood brain cancer and highlight the devastating effects this disease has on both the child and their family.
Every year, guests enjoy a three course dinner, fantastic entertainment, the chance to bid on some incredible live auction and silent auction items. They also have an opportunity to win a Forevermark Diamond from Mazzucchelli’s at our Champagne Diamond Bar; or a luxury men’s sports watch at our Sports Bar presented by Mazzucchelli’s and Gage Roads.
The primary purpose of The BrainChild Ball is to raise funds for the BrainChild Fellowship, a position currently held by Dr Raelene Endersby, co-head of the Brain Tumour Research Program at the Telethon Kids Institute.
Please save the date 27th July 2019.
Tickets released late January 2019.

2018 – Australis
Our Australis BrainChild Ball was as the name suggests a celebration of all things Australian. Over 450 guests honoured the memory of Sindi, who was diagnosed with brain cancer at two years of age and passed away at four years.
Sindi’s Fund was established on this night raising a massive $111,000 to kick start research into this program.
Guests enjoyed a themed menu and true blue Aussie performances by the Australian Girls School Choir and local band Violette River helped us dance the night away. The 2019 BrainChild Ball raised a total of $292,000.
2017 – Issho Ni
The Japanese phrase for “together” encapsulated the spirit of the 2017 BrainChild Ball as guests came together to raise an incredible $210,000.
2016 – La Gourmet Soiree
Our Inaugural event, La Gourmet Soiree, celebrated the best of all things France, in particular the menu designed by Chef Guillaume Brahimi. Raising over $120,000 it certainly was a night to remember.
