For the past 21 years Andrew & Gregory Bell have supported Muscular Dystrophy Queensland and are extremely proud to have raised $2.8 million to date through their Annual Gala Ball and Charity Auction fundraising event.
This black tie event is regarded as a premiere event on the Gold Coast social calendar and includes live entertainment, a 3 course a-la-carte meal and beverages.
Funds are raised by donated items being auctioned, in a private, public and silent arena, or by raffle. The attendees at The Ray White Surfers Paradise Group Muscular Dystrophy Ball are a targeted group of the Gold Coast’s highest wealth individuals and leading companies. Companies such as the Gold Coast Bulletin, Sunland, NAB, Mulpha, Ord Minnett and their associated high wealth executives and clients are in attendance.
We are committed to supporting the research into finding a cure, which will result in eliminating a wide range of genetic diseases. Their association with the Muscular Dystrophy Queensland directly assists families by proving equipment for their children to be a little more comfortable and a large proportion of monies raised go directly to research. A cure may only be a few years away which will have a significant effect on our society.
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) refers to a group of over 60 different genetic muscular and neuromuscular disorders. People with MD have incorrect or missing information in their genes, which prevents them from making the proteins they need for healthy muscles, causing muscles to become progressively weaker over time. The muscle groups that are affected differ with each form of MD; the more severe and most common forms often affect mobility, heart and lung function and often reduce life expectancy, while milder forms may only weaken particular muscle groups and may allow a normal lifespan.
Help us raise much-needed funds! The Muscular Dystrophy Association of Queensland Inc. today is building on the hard work of these early volunteers. The Association is incorporated and is recognised as a credible and accountable provider of services to clients with MD and their families. Visit Muscular Dystrophy Queensland’s website here.
The Brain Foundation has been pleased to be included in the Ray White Charity Ball since 2009. The Brain Foundation is a national, Public Benevolent Institution that is focussed upon educating the community about all brain and spinal diseases, disorders and injuries and funding research in these areas on a nationally competitive basis.
We are thrilled to announce that this year’s event will be reaching new heights, as we move into a new venue!
