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 are warmly invited to attend the 2017 Kids Rehab premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball!

The year 2016 was an overwhelming success for the event on so many levels. We continue to consolidate a wonderful support network with our sponsors and donors; we had another ‘sold out’ event with over 850 guests attending: we had an unbelievable line-up of entertainment including Vince Sorrenti as MC and performances by Jimmy Barnes, Furnace & the Fundamentals and Comedian Tommy Little! Most importantly, over $711K profit was raised on the night for the Kids Rehab Unit.

We are delighted to be hosting the 18th annual Emerald Ball at the spectacular, all new, world class International Convention Centre, Sydney at Darling Harbour! To help celebrate our 18th year anniversary, we have secured another stellar line-up of entertainment for the night! There will be lots of giveaways, prizes and an opportunity to secure some fabulous items from both the silent and live auction and raffle including the chance to win a brand new car, thanks to our major sponsor McGrath Mazda Liverpool.

The Emerald Ball is a very important event raising money for children who have a range of disabilities including: Acquired Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Limb Loss, Spinal Cord Injury / Disease, Spina Bifida and Complex Musculoskeletal Disorders. Every year, it becomes more and more difficult to provide essential medical and therapy services for these children and as a result funding is urgently needed.

We would like to 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly be even bigger and better!

2017 stellar entertainment
