Great Gala – what a ball!

2014 Gala  EventOn Saturday 13 September Lifeline H2H hosted our annual Sapphire Ball. The night was a huge success – lots of fun, but most importantly we raised more than $123,000 net in funding for our crisis support and suicide prevention services.

This amazing result was entirely due to the incredible generosity of our 400 guests, together with our diamond sponsor The Star, our corporate sponsors and everyone who donated prizes for our live and silent auctions.

Amanda Maltabarow from Suicide Prevention Australia reminded us why Lifeline matters with the story of her personal experience with suicide, and special guests included John Brogden, Gladys Berejiklian, Damien Leith and Paul Murray who returned as our hilarious Master of Ceremonies.

As always, we at Lifeline were humbled by the support for our work and genuine concern for those in need shown by our guests and corporate supporters. We couldn’t do it without you!
