London called, and it called loudly at the Epworth HealthCare Gala Ball on Saturday 3 August.
As Crown Palladium glowed in red, white and blue, 1,300 guests were treated to entertainment inspired by some of the greatest English
musicians of all time – from Elton John to Adele, Robbie Williams to Spice Girls – the atmosphere was electric!
The kind-heartedness of the Epworth community was on show through generous support of our auctions, raffle and pledges with a phenomenal gift of $5 million pledged by La Trobe Financial and celebrated with a spontaneous standing ovation from all guests.
If you missed the raffle draw, the lucky winners were ticket numbers 6356, 4156 and 5053.
All funds raised on the night will support innovation at Epworth, helping to ensure the very best of care for our patients.
On behalf of the Epworth Medical Foundation and the Epworth Special Events Committee, thank you to all those who supported the event through sponsorship, tickets sales and the donation of highly sought after auction prizes.
We are already getting excited about next year’s event – the Epworth Centenary Ball – on 1 August 2020. It’s sure to be even more spectacular!
