2018 saw the biggest River’s Gift Gala Ball to date, with an incredible $100,000 fundraised by corporate sponsors and 350 guests at the spectacular Mt Duneed Estate.
With over 11 corporate sponsors, 7 event partners and 10 corporate tables, the event played host to numerous key figures within the Geelong business community, along with a wonderful representation of members of the Geelong, Melbourne, Ballarat, Brisbane and Perth communities; including a number of families touched by Sudden Infant Death in Infancy.
The funds raised have been directed to funding world leading genetic research with Dr Roger Byard
from The University of Adelaide, aiming to establish a diagnostic tool to identify a specific gene
mutation and also enable the creation of the world’s first SIDS DNA Biobank.
