Following a successful inaugural Adelaide Red Ball in 2016, the Fight Cancer Foundation‘s annual charity gala returned to the Adelaide Town Hall for the second time.
The event, once again hosted by Channel 7’s Tim Noonan included a delicious three-course dinner, a silent and live auction and for the first time ever, a live pledge which raised funds for Fight Caner Foundation’s education program, Back on Track.
Possibly the most memorable moment of the night was hearing the positive work of the Back on Track program, which is run with assistance from Team Kids and the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Back on Track helps to support school students in their education as they undergo cancer treatment. The program also helps children transition back to school after they have completed treatment as they consider education to be an extremely valuable part of life.
With performances by The Talent Company and singer Sidonie Henbest, the night concluded with much more dancing and drinking as guests celebrated the achievements of the Fight Cancer Foundation.
