The Snow Ball 2021 raised over $2million, a record-breaking event!
The Snow Ball raised over $2 million for cancer research and treatment,.
The Sunrise and Weekend Sunrise team MC'd the event together with James Tobin leading the proceedings for the night.
“Last year, we made the extremely tough decision to cancel our Snow Ball for the first time since we launched as a result of COVID-19 and it was devastating for our researchers who were unable to continue their vital work in cancer research and treatment,” Dominique Robinson, Chair of Tour de Cure Gala Events said in a statement.
“Cancer didn’t take a break last year so our mission hasn’t changed and we need to keep driving cancer awareness and ensure people continue to seek medical help despite the fear of COVID-19.”
Funds raised from the event, including much-needed pledges, will fund a leukaemia research project conducted by the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia and the worthwhile Canteen Robots for Schools program, bringing normalcy to high school students who cannot attend school because of cancer treatment or recovery.
The Snow Ball is a spectacular night of entertainment and fun, attracting popular celebrity supporters, Sydney's philanthropic elite and leading corporate organisations. It includes exciting live auctions and big-ticket raffle items. Each year, the event gets bigger and raises more funds for those touched by cancer.
It really is life-changing!
Meet Sam Carroll from Snow Ball 2017
Cancer is insidious and unforgiving to the children and families who have to endure it.
Sam Carroll was diagnosed with cancer at just 9 years of age. Now 12 years old, this young man captured hearts and minds when he told his story to more than 900 people at the Snow Ball 2017, reminding us all why we must keep striving for a cure.
Here's what Sam had to say.
“We're the nation that found the cure for cancer – that's what we want hanging over us. So it's up to you. We've got the bright young scientists – all they need is money.”
Actor, Paul Hogan
