Crystal Ball - A brighter future for
people with MS
The Trish Foundation’s valued Patron, Dr Brendan Nelson, joined by NSW Opposition Leader Barry O’Farrell, representatives of the Foundation’s generous sponsors, many people with MS and wonderful supporters who came from far and wide, attended the Trish Foundation’s Crystal Ball on Saturday 20 September at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Darling Harbour.
Dr Nelson gave an inspiring speech, movingly speaking of Trish Langsford, the inspiration of the Foundation and urging the Foundation’s guests to be generous in their support.
Masters of Ceremonies Amanda Keller and Brendan Jones changed from WSFM breakfast to the night shift, to hilariously entertain the Foundation’s guests. More than 550 people attended the Ball and their generous support brought the total of funds raised by the Foundation since inception to over $1.6 million.
The Shuffle Kings and ‘friends’ – Jim Conway, Allan Caswell and Maxine Gourley wowed their audience with a sensational performance, prior to which dancers Kate Wormald and Matt Lee performed a stunning dance routine. Sydney Ensemble’s beautiful music during pre-dinner drinks was appreciated by the Foundation’s guests.
Graham Tribe, President MS Australia gave hope to the many people with MS in the Ballroom saying, “I think we are all looking for confidence these days and the Trish Foundation has been a pioneer in Australia for the hope and confidence that MS can be solved.”
The Trish Foundation’s sincere gratitude is extended to our Patron, Dr Brendan Nelson, our major Corporate Sponsor, Symbion Laverty Pathology, particularly Tracey Jordan, our other Corporate Sponsors, MCs Amanda Keller and Brendan Jones, our Auctioneer Craig Marshall, The Shuffle Kings, Jim Conway, Allan Caswell, Maxine Gourley, dancers Kate Wormald and Matt Lee, Sydney Ensemble, all the generous donors who contributed to the funds raised for MS research and our sensational supporters who have such big hearts and continue to endlessly support our cause.
