Theme: Mad Hatter, After Dark
Dress code: Black tie ~ with a touch of madness
This will be Brainstorm for a Cure’s fourth ‘Party for HOPE’. In 2014, Brainstorm for a Cure came to life when 39-year-old brain cancer survivor (one of a tiny 5% of survivors), Sarah Mamalai, lost five dear friends to the same cruel disease as her own, a malignant brain tumor. One being her young soul ‘sista’, 15-year-old Dainere Anthoney. To honour their memories and save herself from sinking in grief, Sarah hatched the idea of creating a unique charity event – Brainstorm for a Cure.
Last year we sold out with two months to go. We anticipate this year’s event will also have a sell-out crowd, with over 800 people attending. With the announcement of this year’s headline act imminent, the last two years have been 5-star. Aussie rock legends, Hoodoo Gurus were our headline act last year and in 2015 Baby Animals rocked the room. All proceeds go to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
Brainstorm for a Cure is different to other gala fundraising events. It truly is a party with a vibrant atmosphere!
Since the inaugural event in 2014, Brainstorm for a Cure has raised $680,000 and our aim this year is to raise an additional $350,000.
