Liverpool City Council Charity Ball

Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of Liverpool’s premier black-tie event! This year’s Liverpool Charity Ball will be held on 26th August at Liverpool Catholic Club and will feature Wendy Harmer as MC on the night. Not only is Wendy the host of ABC Radio’s Morning Show, but she is also a children's writer, playwright and of Australia’s best loved comedians.

In 2016 comedian Vince Sorrenti was MC on the night, and the event featured a fantastic line-up of entertainment, including the High Rollers Band and local soul sensation Melaia Sadranu.

Liverpool Hospital has been selected as this year’s beneficiary and funds raised at the ball will be used to build a health and healing garden within the hospital grounds. As well as serving as a beautiful entrance to the hospital, it will provide a natural space for patients and their friends and relatives to take a break from the bustling clinical spaces inside the hospital.

The garden will be a place for quiet reflection and rest - you can wander along an Aboriginal healing track or sit in a tranquil environment. There will also be space for teaching and gathering, which can be used to enhance the educational experience for the doctors, nurses and other health professionals of the future, who are learning their craft at our health precinct.

Last year, we were able to help the Hospital purchase an ultrasound machine for its intensive care unit. With the help of this machine, they can carefully examine and diagnose more than 200 trauma patients a year.

Funds raised at last year’s ball also went to Miracle Babies and Liverpool Salvation Army.

2016 chosen charities

Miracle Babies Foundation

MB

Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia’s leading organisation supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them.

Every year in Australia around 45,000 newborn babies require the help of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). 25,000 of these babies are born premature and up to 1000 babies lose their fight for life.

For families, the experience of having a baby come into the world not as expected or planned is life changing. Without support, this overwhelming and traumatic experience can have lifelong effects on the emotional wellbeing of these miracle families.  It affects the entire family unit.

Since 2005, Miracle Babies Foundation has been passionate in developing and providing vital programs and resources to support and enhance a family’s experience from a threatened pregnancy, hospital journey with a premature or sick newborn, the transition to home and beyond.

Australia is home to 22 state of the art intensive care units designed to meet the unique and critical needs of our earliest and sickest babies. Working with health professionals on the joint agenda of better outcomes for families, Miracle Babies provides informative education and insight on a family’s experience and funding for equipment, resources and research.
