The Light Ball

Date: TBA

Location:  TBA

The Light Ball in Sydney and Melbourne is an annual black-tie gala ball that takes place every October to help tackle the issue of mental health in Australia, Ireland and beyond.

The Light Ball started with a group of friends who came together after losing a very close friend in Ireland through suicide. Since then, the movement has evolved and has seen the original event in Ireland grow and begin in Sydney and Melbourne.
