SA Surgeons' Ball
The SA Office is thrilled to announce that the SA Surgeons Ball has raised $20,663 for the Foundation for Surgery in support of the Timor Leste - Pacific Surgical Capacity Building Project.
The Ball was held on Saturday 6 February at the SkyCity. It was the first major event of its kind to be held at the newly opened venue, located in Adelaide’s Riverbank precinct, which helped add to the sense of excitement of the night.
Guests were treated to a three-course meal and ongoing entertainment throughout the night. This included; a ‘pre-dinner’ experience featuring canapes and a red carpet equipped with photographer; live and silent auctions which were held throughout the night; and the return by popular demand of Adelaide band the Baker Boys.
The Ball also featured a presentation from Dr Annette Hollian, Chair of Global Health, who provided an insightful perspective of the important work done by the global health team, particularly in Timor Leste.
We would like to thank everyone involved for their enormous generosity, and for making the Ball such a resounding success.
We look forward to hosting many more of these type of events in the future!
