As we begin the new year, many exciting events lay on the horizon. March marks the return of the North Shore Black & White Charity Ball. In its second year, with McConnell Bourn as a proud sponsor, this lively black tie gala event is a night of socialising to celebrate the networks of families and local businesses in our area.

“We started with a group of North Shore mums, who formed a committee. We wanted to raise money for charity and support our local community.” Kylie Macdonald, founder of the event said.

Held at Killara Golf Club, the night will boast a night of canapes, indulgent desserts and live music, while fundraising to help the community flourish and thrive.

This year, the event will be raising funds for local St Lucy’s School and St Edmund’s College, both of which are focused on the education and advocacy of students with special needs.

“There are many local families that are assisted by St Lucy’s and St Edmund’s. We wanted to shed a light on their work by raising funds for resources they desperately need.” Kylie said.

Attendees on the night will be able to donate towards the purchase of these resources, and win prizes from local businesses.

“All prizes we have on our online bidding are from local businesses, and attendees can bid online prior to the event” Kylie said.

Last year’s event was a success, fundraising for KYDS Youth Development Services and the Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Women’s Shelter – raising $30,000 in donations for these charities.
