2019 Epworth Gala Ball raises funds for innovation

August 12, 2019| Epworth News /

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 auction, to pledges, and of course a phenomenal gift of $5 million by La Trobe Financial recognised and celebrated with a spontaneous standing ovation from all guests.

The money raised at Gala Ball will support innovation at Epworth, helping to ensure the very best care for our patients.

On behalf of the Epworth Medical Foundation, thank you to all Epworth employees who attended and also volunteered on the night. 

We cannot wait to celebrate with you at the 2020 Gala Ball in our Centenary year. It’s sure to be spectacular!
