Live your Life Ball
The Diabetes NSW Live your life Ball took place on Saturday, 27 February 2016, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, bringing a little magic to kids living with diabetes.
An incredible $167, 000 was raised by the very generous ball-goers, all going directly to the Diabetes Kids Fund. This fund enables new and improved resources, services and events to support children, teens and young adults to live their lives to the fullest with diabetes.
Almost 400 guests, kitted out in black tie with a touch of forest green, joined us for this important fundraiser, including our incredible corporate partners, special ambassadors, generous donors and outstanding supporters. We were also very privileged to be joined by the Diabetes NSW Patron, His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d), Governor of New South Wales, and Mrs Hurley.
Duncan Read was our inspirational guest speaker. Duncan is a Diabetes NSW Ambassador, living with type 1 diabetes. When asked how he lives his life with diabetes, his honest response is – “I’m fitter for having it!”
We would like to acknowledge our sponsors for the night, including Sapphire Sponsor Deemah Stone in their 13th year of supporting Diabetes NSW. Equal, Novartis and Roche were our corporate sponsors, and Decante This and McWilliams sponsored our beverages. Prizes were donated by Emirates, O Bar and Dining, Helping Hang Group, Sony and People2People to name just a few.
Lastly (and most definitely not least) we would like to thank our generous guests, everyone that supported the event by donating their time and services, and our amazing volunteers for their help on the night in delivering the fantastic Live your life Ball 2016.
