Melbourne’s Society have a ball fundraising for the Celebration of Life
A Celebration of Life Gala Ball 10th Anniversary garnered together a significant component of Melbourne’s society set for a heartfelt and celebratory night to raise funds for the Newborn Intensive Care Unit – Butterfly Ward at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne.

The Palladium Ball Room at Crown Melbourne looked absolutely amazing as it filled with the glammed up supporters of this very worthy cause marking the event one of Melbourne’s most dazzling fundraisers.

Chris Clarke, with his late wife Sophie established ‘A Celebration of Life’ ten years ago.  Chris arrived from New York to attend the Ball with his 10 year old daughter Madeleine, an ex-NICU patient.

Matt and Melissa Hetherington and Glen Moriaty, NICU Ambassadors and show hosts, did an outstanding  job on the night with the committee of The Gala Ball Event (Chaired by Catherine Cervasio) working tirelessly for months to ensure a fabulously successful event.

Airlie Koo and Sally Cooper got the entertainment off to an electric start wowing the crowd with their Violin duets prior to the ‘auction’ of goodies on offer including the much coveted Louis Vuitton ‘Alma Givre’ handbag that was eagerly snapped up by Judith Giddings.  It does appear that Louis Vuitton may soon be considering putting their stamp on playground equipment as the ‘Little Foot’ playground was knocked down for a staggering figure to Philip Corne, CEO Louis Vuitton Australia.  The Paul McCartney signed Hofner Guitar was also a hotly bid for treasure also going on to prove the generosity of those in attendance.

Matt Hetherington and his Band along with special guests Sam Ludeman and Jimmy Cupples soon had the room finding its feet on the dance floor.  These guys are all top class singers and musicians and kept everyone in the party mood till the wee hours including MiSociety who took the next morning – ‘slowly’.  They certainly know how to throw a Gala Ball in Melbourne so get your tickets early for the 2013 ‘A Celebration of Life Gala Ball’!
