A Night of Glitz, Glamour, and Giving

27 June 2024

On Saturday, June 1, the Marshall White Foundation hosted their annual fundraising event at the Grand Hyatt, transporting approximately 400 guests to the streets of Rio de Janeiro for an unforgettable evening of entertainment, philanthropy, and community spirit.

The Carnival themed ball, masterfully emceed by Channel 9 Reporter Tom Steinfort, was a dazzling display of colour, music, and dance. From the moment guests arrived, they were greeted by the enchanting Tropicana girls, setting the tone for a night filled with excitement.

The evening's entertainment lineup was nothing short of spectacular. Isaac Moran kicked off the festivities with an acoustic performance, followed by a mesmerising display by Karin Achavez and the Brazilian drummers, who filled the room with infectious rhythms and energy, while Kealy's aerial hoop performance left the audience in awe.

As the evening progressed, guests had the opportunity to participate in a raffle, silent auction, and a live auction, all of which were met with enthusiastic bidding. The generosity of the attendees was truly heartwarming as they came together to support MWF's partner charities, You Matter and Launch Housing.

The Marshall White Foundation has been tireless in its efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need, with a particular focus on addressing homelessness and creating safe havens for women and children fleeing domestic and family violence. The funds raised during the Ball, in excess of $150,000, will play a crucial role in enabling MWF to continue its vital work and support these essential causes.

The success of the event would not have been possible without the generous support of the evening's major sponsors. Domain, Levantine Hill & Bensons Property Group, Briner, Neo Printing, and NAB all played a significant role in bringing the Foundation Ball to life. A special mention must be made of Levantine Hill, who graciously donated all the wine for the evening.

As the night drew to a close, the Andrew Loadsman Band took the stage, and guests danced the night away, celebrating the incredible achievements of the Marshall White Foundation and the power of coming together for a worthy cause. The Ball was more than just a social event; it was a resounding affirmation of the commitment of the Marshall White Foundation and its supporters to create positive change and build a brighter future for those who need it most.

The Marshall White Foundation would like to express its heartfelt gratitude to all those who attended, sponsored, and contributed to making the Foundation Ball 2024 an extraordinary success. Together, we have taken a significant step towards creating a more compassionate society, and we look forward to continuing this important work in the years to come.
