Last year the inaugural Wellness Ball raised just over $27,000 which was donated to the Olivia Newton – John Cancer & Wellness Centre at Austin Health specifically to help fund wellness programs for patients with cancer and to assist in establishing a Resource Library at the Centre.  So over two years we have raised $77,000.

A special thanks to my hardworking committee.  They have already committee to Wellness Ball 2014.

Thankyou to the support of the following Gold Sponsors, World 4 Kids, Mount’s Pharmacy, Flexicar, Miles Real Estate, Romano Property Group, Old England Hotel, Leda Constructions Pty Ltd and Greensborough Chamber of Commerce as well as Silver Sponsors, EcoD and the Ivanhoe Traders Association”

The Wellness Ball 2014 will be another fabulous community event and has the whole local community behind it. Net proceeds will again be donated to the Olivia Newton – John Cancer & Wellness Centre – wellness programs.
