The 2015 Heart Beat Ball
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
We are delighted to inform you that the inaugural Victor Chang Heart Beat Ball was a brilliant success! With your overwhelmingly generous support we raised more than half a million dollars for the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. These vital funds will help our dedicated scientists discover cures for congenital heart disease, the most common form of birth defect in Australia and the world.
I’m sure we all agree the Town Hall looked majestic on Friday evening. From the ‘human’ red carpet to the welcoming trumpet players, and the luxurious Laurent Perrier Champagne Bar – we hope it was a night to remember.
Our sincere thanks goes to our elegant host, Sandra Sully, who was integral to the success of the evening. We particularly enjoyed Sandra’s impromptu conversation with cheeky teenager Joel Seeto, who is waiting for a heart transplant.
Victor Chang Professor Sally Dunwoodie also spoke beautifully. And few could forget the moving speech by young mother Kirsteen Martin, whose little baby Lara has already been through so much. Thank you, Kirsteen, for giving us a rare insight into your world.
As the evening kicked on, the talented Dami Im entertained the crowd, while guests danced and sipped on Laurent Perrier Champagne.
More photos from the event can be found on our Facebook page here:
There are also a number of great pictures on Instagram and Twitter. Check them out and follow us @VictorChangInst or #VictorChangBall.
Finally, the night would not have been possible without our incredible committee members, volunteers and our major sponsors, Virgin Australia, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Emirates, Crown Resorts, Paul Gauguin Cruises, Wiltrans, Rocky Mountaineer and LK Boutique who kindly donated the His & Her Cartier time pieces for the Treasure Chest.
Once again, we hope you enjoyed the inaugural Victor Chang Heart Beat Ball. What a wonderful way to celebrate our 21st birthday and to honour the legacy of Dr Victor Chang!
