The 2022 Enchanted Ball will be held
on Friday 18 November 2022
at Crown Melbourne

Enchanted Ball

What started as a simple lunch arranged by four friends who dressed in polka dot ties and donated a day's wages to the cause has become one of Australia's largest fundraising galas.

The Enchanted Ball is coordinated by volunteers from each of the four banks who donate their time in the lead up to this annual event.

It is one of the largest annual sit down black tie fundraisers in Australia for causes and research projects designed specifically to improve the health, welfare and well-being of the future of Australia - our children. The Ball has broken fundraising records year on year, with $1,700,901 raised at the last Ball in 2019.

Unfortunately, given the uncertainty of current times, the 2021 Enchanted Ball has been postponed and the next Ball will take place on Friday 18 November 2022 at Crown Melbourne. The Enchanted Ball will be in its 20th year in 2022.

Online Auction

To continue supporting the Foundation, we will run an online auction that will launch on 9am Monday 1 November 2021 and run until 5pm Friday 19 November.

The silent auction is always a popular fundraising activity in the lead up to and at the Ball, and we’re confident there will be some fun and fierce bidding in an online auction environment.

Tombstone Charitable Bond
We will proceed with the issuance of our Tombstone Charitable Bond which has already garnered generous support.
