The Emerald Ball is an annual event that raises much needed funds for Kids Rehab at The Children's Hospital at Westmead.

Families, friends, staff, volunteers and supporters of the Kids Rehab community were warmly invited to attend the 2016 Kids Rehab premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball.

The 850 guests fortunate enough to secure tickets to the 2016 Emerald Ball were treated to a night of superb entertainment! In true Emerald Ball tradition, this ‘sold out’ event left guests enthralled throughout the night with performances by Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes and one of Australia’s most talented Comedians, Mr Tommy Little! Our MC, Mr Vince Sorrenti did a wonderful job ensuring the blockbuster order of events went smoothly and Kids Rehab Patron Ms Sami Lukis was the perfect hostess on the night.

Also included in the entertainment line-up was the incredibly awesome, high energised Furnace & the Fundamentals who ensured the party continued well into the late night, our Auctioneer Ben Dobbin who did an outstanding job in the Live Auction plus a host of celebrities who turned up on the night to show their support for Kids Rehab. There were lots of giveaways, prizes, fabulous items in both the silent and live auction plus one lucky guest walking away with a brand new Mazda CX-3, thanks to our Platinum Sponsor McGrath Mazda Liverpool.

Images of the event have been uploaded to the 2016 Emerald Ball photo gallery.

Most importantly, over $711K net profit was raised on the night which will help fund rehabilitation treatment programs for children with disabilities including: Acquired Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Limb Deficiency, Spinal Cord Injury / Disease, Spina Bifida and Connective Tissue Disorders

We take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our sponsors, donors, suppliers and guests for their amazing support and generosity over the years. The community plays a vital role in our operation and only with such support can Kids Rehab at CHW continue to achieve the high standard we set for ourselves in both patient care and research. Once again, many thanks for your wonderful contribution.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly another epic event!
