Sharecare Ball - November 7th 2014
On Friday 7th November 2014, BluCHP staff "glamed" up and attended the inaugural Twilight Sharecare Charity Ball held at the West Leagues Club in Leumeah. All proceeds go towards the purchase of another bus to provide safe and secure transport to and from vital programs for children and young adults with disabilities. The staff had a fabulous night filled with great food and dancing. The Sharecare Ball also held an online charity auction where local businesses donated great prizes. These prizes included a lunch with former Prime Minister John Howard, F1 tickets and exclusive back stage access to the Singapore F1 in 2015 and even a trip (including flights and accomodation) to Tuscany (Italy).
Those who attended the Sharecare Ball were also entertained throughout the night with live comedy and ventriloquist act, live music and performances by Sharecare clients and cover band "The Plan".
The event was a success to Sharecare who in total raised more than $35,000 from ticket sales and bid money for prizes throughout the night.
