Red Ball 2012
The 20th Anniversary Red Ball was spectacular and a huge success. The Palladium at Crown was transformed into a glittering Broadway Theatre, with velvet draped VIP room and Red Carpet arrivals.
MC, Chanel 9’s Karl Stefanovic was the perfect host and welcomed the 1200 guests and introduced the Fight Cancer Foundation’s Patrons, Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman.
Bidding on the exclusive live auction prizes was fierce. To everyone’s surprise and delight, guest, Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum auctioned off several of his famous hats to be signed by his celebrity friends.
The highlight of the evening was a spellbinding hour long performance by the world’s greatest song and dance man, Hugh Jackman, reprising his smash hit show, “Hugh Jackman – Back on Broadway”, directed by Broadway legend Patrick Vaccariello and complete with 21 piece orchestra, including Paul Boon masterfully playing the didgeridoo.
The Fight Cancer Foundation thanks everyone involved in this the most spectacular and successful event in our history. Thank you.
