We are absolutely delighted to announce the 2018 Emerald Ball for Kids Rehab at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead was a National Finalist and State Winner for NSW for ‘Best Charity or Cause Related Event’ in 2018. The Australian Event Awards is the pinnacle awards program for the events industry in Australia which was held at Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Sunshine Coast, QLD, on Wednesday 21st November. This achievement would not have been possible without the incredible support from all our sponsors, donors, suppliers, performers, friends and family. Our heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved in making the 2018 Emerald Ball the most successful event ever.


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 2019 Kids Rehab premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball!

The 2018 Emerald Ball was an overwhelming success on so many levels. We continue to consolidate a wonderful support network with our sponsors and donors; we had over 1000 guests in attendance on the night: we had an unbelievable line-up of entertainment including Sami Lukis & David Campbell as MC’s and performances by Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Furnace & the Fundamentals and Comedian Darren Carr! Most importantly, over $1M was raised on the night for the Kids Rehab Unit. To cap off our stellar year of achievements, the Emerald Ball was a National Finalist & NSW State Winner at the 2018 Australian Events Awards for ‘Best Charity or Cause Related Event’.

To help celebrate our 20th year anniversary, we have secured another 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, 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 2019 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly be another blockbuster night of entertainment!

2019 stellar entertainment
