It's time to re-engage, re-imagine and re-build the blockbuster event we all know and love. We are absolutely delighted to announce the Emerald Ball for Kids Rehab at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, will return in 2021 as a LIVE event.
The outbreak of COVID 19 caused some major challenges for us, and like many other events, we were deeply saddened to make the difficult decision to cancel the event in 2020. The health and safety of our patients, families, supporters and staff remains our number one priority and as such we will continue to monitor and follow the health advice provided from NSW Health as we rollout the 2021 Emerald Ball.
To help celebrate our 22nd anniversary, we are in the process of organising a COVID safe star-studded line-up of entertainment for the night at the world class International Convention Centre, Sydney at Darling Harbour. 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 Subaru 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 and Movement Disorders, Limb Difference, Spinal Cord Injury or 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 additional funding is needed.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our sponsors, donors, suppliers and guests for their amazing support and generosity throughout the pandemic. 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 2021 Emerald Ball which will be an incredible night of entertainment not to be missed!
