Our annual Gala Ball, which has established itself as one of Australia’s most elaborate and spectacular charity events.

This year held at Glass House, Pivot City, Geelong on Saturday 15th June is now SOLD OUT! Officially Australia’s biggest single fundraising event specific to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), a big thank you goes out to our supporters who have eagerly purchased tickets. If you’ve missed out, please follow us on social media for dates of our 2020 Gala Ball.

Consider supporting River’s Gift in our mission of Stamping Out SIDS, by donating.


We raised over $118,500 for SIDS research and education.
