Total Raised $1,005,426.00


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 2018 Kids Rehab premier fundraising event, the Emerald Ball.

The 1,020 guests fortunate enough to secure tickets to the 2018 Emerald Ball on Saturday 19th May at ICC Sydney were treated to a night of spectacular entertainment! In true Emerald Ball tradition, this highly sought after event left guests captivated throughout the night with performances by Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, David Campbell and one of Australia’s most versatile Comedians, Mr Darren Carr! MC’s Sami Lukis and David Campbell did a wonderful job ensuring the blockbuster order of events went smoothly.

Also included in the entertainment line-up were Aerialize, the incredibly awesome, high energised Furnace and the Fundamentals who ensured the party continued well into the late night and our Auctioneer Fred Frangi 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 walking away with a brand new Subaru XV, thanks to our Platinum Sponsor McGrath Subaru Liverpool.

Images of the event have been uploaded to the 2018 Emerald Ball photo gallery.

Most importantly, over $1M was raised on the night which will help fund rehabilitation treatment programs for children with 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 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 2019 Emerald Ball, which will undoubtedly another epic event when we celebrate our 20 year anniversary!
