The results are in… The 5th annual Emerald Ball has raised an incredible $48,476 for headspace Geelong! The epic amount was a result of the hard work of the ten wonderful volunteer organising committee members who ensured that everyone who attended had a night to remember.
The Emerald Ball was started in 2013 by three local women to raise funds and awareness for mental health and reduce the stigma around mental illness. With the support of the organising committee and the local community the ball has grown each year, this year attracting over 300 guests.
This years Emerald Ball was held in the president’s room at GMHBA stadium with guest being treated to divine food, wonderful company and plenty of dancing. The team from Ray White Highton did an amazing job running the live auction (going the extra mile and auctioning off one of their team members to boost the total).
The generosity of local businesses was key in the success of the event and headspace Geelong would like to join with The Emerald Ball in thanking the major sponsors of this years event - Ray White Highton, Connolly Electrical & Data Solutions , Q Train, Premium Stone Benchtops and Rowan Wood Electrical.
The headspace Geelong team had a lot of fun being part of the event and seeing the generosity of the Geelong community in action. What a night, what a result and what a team- A massive thank you to everyone who was involved- You are amazing!
Next years Emerald Ball has been locked in for October 5th, be sure to follow Emerald Ball on Facebook to stay updated!
