The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation & Kids Rehab at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead proudly presented the 25th Annual Emerald Ball, on Saturday 25 May 2024, at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour.

Families, friends, staff, volunteers, and supporters of the Kids Rehab community were warmly invited to attend the 2024 Kids Rehab & SCHF premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball.

In true Emerald Ball tradition, guests attending the 2024 Emerald Ball on Saturday 25 May were treated to a night of spectacular entertainment in the stunning Grand Ballroom at ICC Sydney. In celebration of our 25th year anniversary, the night kicked off with a beautiful performance by the KARI Singers. Australian music royalty and media personality, David Campbell, was nothing short of dazzling, wowing guests with his energised performance. Our MC and Patron Sami Lukis stunned in an Eileen Kirby gown and did a wonderful job ensuring the blockbuster order of events went smoothly.

Also included in the entertainment line-up was Unusualist Raymond Crowe, and Australia’s number one party band Furnace and the Fundamentals who ensured the party continued well into the late night with their brilliant show. Our Auctioneer Toby Llewellyn did an outstanding job in the Live Auction and Pledges. There were lots of giveaways, prizes and fabulous items in both the silent and live auction plus one lucky guest walked away with an all-new Subaru Crosstrek, thanks to our Platinum Sponsor McGrath Subaru Liverpool.

A highlights video from the event can be viewed and images have been uploaded to the 2024 Emerald Ball photo gallery.

Most importantly, $650,342.00 was raised on the night 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.

We take this opportunity to sincerely thank our sponsors, donors, presenters, performers, suppliers and guests for their amazing support and generosity over the years. This community plays a vital role in our operation and only with your support can Kids Rehab at CHW and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation continue to achieve the high standards 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 2025 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly be another spectacular event not to be missed!
