ANZ Community Ball raises $230,000 for South Australian charities

Together with customers and community partners, ANZ has raised more than $230,000 at this year’s ANZ Community Ball, with funds benefiting 12 South Australian charities.

Now in its fifth year, the event, held in partnership with ANZ and the Women’s and Childrens Hospital Foundation, has raised more than $1.45m since its inaugural year in 2019 for South Australian charities.

ANZ Chief Risk Officer Kevin Corbally said: “I’m really proud that ANZ’s South Australian team are so passionate about delivering this important event – which at its core is about helping and supporting the local South Australian community.”

“In addition to raising funds for a worthy cause, the South Australian Community Ball is a great opportunity to catch-up with our South Australian community partners and customers.”

This year’s event held special significance for many in attendance, celebrating the memory of the late Jane Yuile. Ms Yuile was a titan of the South Australian business community, ANZ’s South Australian state chair and was instrumental in organising the event in previous years.

ANZ State General Manager, SMEs, and Community Ball Committee Chair Adele Fiene said: “Jane was a truly spectacular lady and was integral in getting so many people to attend the night and support our wonderful community partners and charities.”

Held at Adelaide Oval, the event showcased South Australian farmers, chefs and winemakers, to over 500 attendees.

After a strong night of fundraising – including two auctions and a car raffle provided by Peter Kittle Toyota – attendees finished the evening with entertainment from South Australian Cabaret David Campbell OAM and his band.
