The Winter Family Ball

The brightest night of the year

On December 1, more than 450 caring supporters participated in a spectacular evening of philanthropy at our 34th annual Winter Family Ball presented by Macquarie.  With the generosity of our guests, sponsors, donors, and volunteers, together we raised $385,000.  These funds will enable many more children and families on the North Shore to access counselling, family support and education opportunities that will forever change their lives.  Thank you to all those who joined us.

The Winter Family Ball is my kids and our favourite night of the year. We love the energy and feeling of engaging with our friends to support our community. It’s a special and unique opportunity to have our children be a part of giving back and understanding that we all must support each other to feel whole.– Winter Family Ball guest
