On Saturday 25 May, I will be hosting the 43rd Sutherland Shire Mayoral Debutante Charity Ball at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre. The Mayoral Ball is one of the premier events on the Sutherland Shire calendar drawing over 300 guests to celebrate a longstanding tradition, as well as the achievements of the young men and women being presented. I always look forward to the Mayoral Ball which is a great opportunity for our young students to step into the spotlight and show they are independent members of our community.
This year, the Ball will raise money for our 2019 charity partner, St. George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation (SSMRF). Established in 2007, the SSMRF offers medical research grant funding to assist doctors and other health professionals in conducting medical research at The Sutherland Hospital and St George Hospital with the aim to improve care and outcomes for patients and the wider community. We are seeking support and sponsorship from community minded organisations to partner with us for the Ball and I urge you to dig deep to support this fantastic local charity. If you are a community minded organisation and want to be involved, call 02 9710 0996.
