Red Ball Melbourne - September 2022
Fight Cancer Foundation proudly held Red Ball Melbourne on Saturday 10 September in Palladium at Crown.
The night was hosted by One of Australia’s most respected actors, Jane Hall, who's career has spanned film, television and theatre for more than 30 years. Guests enjoyed bidding on a range of exciting silent auction items and participated in a trilling live auction. This was conducted by Head of The Agency Victoria and Chief Auctioneer, Peter Kakos and spruiked by one of Australia's most in demand presenters, Pete Lazer.
There were two incredible raffle prizes provided by The Hour Glass and Girard-Perregaux. First prize, a $27,400 GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 36MM Lady's watch (49524D11A171-CK6A) was won by Nell Awad. Second prize, a GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 Full Calendar (49535-11-131-11A) was won by Michelle De Koning.
Guests were treated to an extravagant circus performance by Southern Beat Productions, enjoyed the sounds of Craig Francis Music and danced the night away with Hayley Teal’s Sound System.

History of Red Ball Melbourne
At the February 2022 ball, Popular television and radio host, comedian, actor, writer, and key-note speaker returned as host, having welcomed guests to the last event in 2019. Guests were entertained by the magnificent Anthony Callea and a wonderful French-style Cabaret, which wowed everyone with spectacular live entertainment amidst some of Melbourne’s finest food and wine.
Amazing Live and Silent Auction items were highly sought after, including luxury accommodation packages, sporting experiences, dining occasions, artwork, memorabilia and wine. The magnificent $51,200 Hublot, Unico King, Gold Ceramic Watch, courtesy of Hublot and The Hour Glass was raffles and won by Brydon Johnson of Blackburn North.
The magical amount of $350,00 was raised to enable Fight Cancer Foundation to continue to provide care, treatment and support for cancer patients and their families and to fund vital research into cancer treatments and cures.
