Charity Gala Ball & Auction

2020 event: postponed

Our eighth annual Charity Ball & Auction will be taking place on November 28th 2020! We are planning to celebrate the joy and hope that comes out of Africa. There will be live African entertainment and the opportunity to bid on unique items and experiences in our charity auction. There will also be a fantastic 3 course meal and more!

2019 was our best event yet, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned for 2020!

We are thankful to the businesses and organisations who have supported our previous events. Please email for more information about corporate sponsorship at a future charity event.
