Total Raised $725,300.00


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 2017 Kids Rehab premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball.

The 850 guests fortunate enough to secure tickets to the 2017 Emerald Ball at the ICC Sydney on Saturday 27th May, were treated to a night of superb entertainment! In true Emerald Ball tradition, this exclusive event left guests thoroughly entertained throughout the night with performances by Aussie musician Diesel and one of Australia’s most acclaimed and brilliantly funny Comedians, Jimeoin! David Campbell did an outstanding job filling in his father’s shoes Jimmy Barnes and had the crowd on their feet from the moment he set foot on stage! Our MC for the night Ms Sami Lukis, did a wonderful job ensuring the night’s blockbuster order of events went smoothly.

Also included in the entertainment line-up was the incredibly awesome, highly energised Furnace & the Fundamentals who ensured the party continued well into the late night and our Auctioneer Andrew Morello did an outstanding job in the Live Auction. There were lots of giveaways, prizes, fabulous items in both the silent and live auction plus one lucky guest walked away with a brand new Mazda CX-3 Maxx, thanks to our Platinum Sponsor McGrath Mazda Liverpool.

Images of the event have been uploaded to the 2017 Emerald Ball photo gallery.

Most importantly, over $725K 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 2018 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly be another epic event!

2017 stellar entertainment
