About The Diamond Event
The Diamond Event is one of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation’s signature fundraisers. Celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2019, it has now invested nearly $5 million in the brightest minds, latest equipment and ground-breaking research at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
Helping critically ill kids in the Emergency Department, Respiratory Clinic and other areas across the Hospital, the event has been integral in changing the landscape of children’s health, all while delivering exceptional value to stakeholders and keeping costs lower than most other fundraising events.
The Diamond Event is a celebrated cocktail function attended by approximately 400 of Sydney’s most corporate elite. The night consists of celebrity MC’s, music and entertainment, live auctions, pledging plus much more – all to help raise much needed funds for seriously sick kids.
About the Beneficiary
The Diamond Event 2020 will be raising vital funds for the Fellowship Program at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick. The Fellowship Program has been running for 21 years and acts as a springboard for Australia’s brightest minds to lead the way in paediatric treatment, care and research.
It ensures the most promising clinicians can continue to develop skills in their chosen specialist area right here in the heart of Sydney – just like Dr Laura Fawcett, who joined us for The Diamond Event in 2019. During her fellowship, Laura cared for over 180 patients and built upon collective knowledge in the field that will pave the way for medical breakthroughs in the future.
By supporting The Diamond Event 2020, you’re investing in the people who lead the way in new treatments, research, training and care for children who desperately need it.
The Diamond Event 2019 raised over $856,000 for the Fellowship Program at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
