2010 Ball

CIKA is committed to providing funding for research into solid tumours

2010 Ball - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

The 2010 Blue and Orange Ball, held at the Sebel Hotel on 21 August was our most successful event ever, raising $204,240.94 for research into curing childhood cancer. We are so grateful to our many sponsors and supporters and to the hard working volunteers who make this possible. Well done everyone.

Once again, CIKA thanks Happy Medium for supplying most of the following photographs.

Health Minister Daniel Andrews was a welcome guest. Here we see him announcing a grant of $55,000 for the purchase of items on the RCH
Children's Cancer Centre wish list.

As usual, the Blue and Orange theme
was evident in the table decorations.

Proceedings were opened by our generous
patron, Peter Mitchell from the
Channel Seven newsroom.

We were delighted to have Health Minister,
