About Silver Party
The Silver Party is an iconic event which has raised more than $7 million for Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation since its inception in 2001. It is known for its iconic venues in some of Sydney’s most exclusive locations and private homes.
Contributing to significant developments across the Hospital’s remit, the Silver Party has supported areas such as the emergency department and more recently funding the cardiology department and The Centre for Child Health Research and Innovation. The Silver Party has also enabled the Hospital to train specialist paediatric surgeons as well as fund vital equipment for operating theatres.
About the Beneficiary
For 2020, the Silver Party is devoted to once again raising funds for the Kids Cancer Centre (KCC) at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
The KCC is a leading international centre of excellence in the treatment and research of childhood cancer and blood disorders. It has been delivering family-focused care for children and adolescents with cancer for the past 50 years.
There have been exceptional advances in cancer treatment over the years, but devastatingly, brain cancer still kills more children in Australia than any other childhood disease. With your support, clinicians and researchers alike hope to unlock a new era in childhood cancer survival for conditions like diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG), which remains universally fatal.
Sixty per cent of the KCC’s patients are from outside of metropolitan areas. The need to support these kids, irrespective of circumstance or location is critical and has been made possible through KCC’s regional outreach services and clinics. The 35 regional outreach clinics across NSW and ACT ensures kids can still receive follow-up treatment and care, regardless of situations outside of their control.
The Silver Party 2020 will also aim to fund pioneering clinical trials that will have a direct impact on the health of children nationwide. Together, we can give hope to these families by improving access to outreach clinical care, novel approaches, new treatments, new hope and ultimately improved patient outcomes.
Further to this, the Silver Party is also pledging its support to paediatric healthcare in the areas of greatest need. This will include support for families and services in regional areas affected by the recent bushfires.
