Charity Ball raises $50,000 to support student programs

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and guests, more than $50,000 was raised at the 2019 Liverpool City Council Charity Ball for the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said the Tokyo-inspired affair, held at The William Inglis Hotel on Saturday 21 September, was a huge success.

“Alongside our generous sponsors and partners, around 300 guests at our sixth annual Liverpool City Council Charity Ball dug deep to assist us in raising more than $50,000 for the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research,” Mayor Waller said.

“Our black-tie affair was a fantastic celebration, with guests treated to Japanese-inspired entertainment and cuisine.

“On behalf of Councillors and staff, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to our guests, sponsors, partners, MC and performers for contributing to the event’s fundraising success.”

Darryl Harkness, CEO at the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research, said he was delighted that so many people had showed their support.

“We are delighted by the generosity of Liverpool City Council, Charity Ball sponsors and the many people who attended or have donated,” Mr Harkness said.

“The proceeds will go towards our student-focused programs, inspiring young people in Liverpool to pursue careers in health and science while gaining practical work experience and industry skills.”
