Shaw and Partners - proud premier partner for Canberra's Cure Brain Cancer Foundation - Brainstorm for a Cure Gala Ball Foundation12 Sep 2018

On Saturday 8th September Shaw and Partners was the proud premier partner of the Canberra based Cure Brain Cancer Foundation (CBCF) – Brainstorm for a Cure gala ball.

 

Held at the iconic Australian Institute of Sport Arena, 1000 of Canberra’s high net worth individuals and corporates came together to raise money to fund brain cancer research, to promote breakthroughs and improve cancer prevention, detection and treatments.

 

Australian TV personality Andrew Daddo hosted the evening and guests were entertained with performances by Aussie Rock legend Jon Stevens and Australian singer, songwriter and actress Paulini Curuenavuli.

 

Shaw and Partners guests enjoyed VIP treatment at a pre-event cocktail function, where they heard from Co-CEO Earl Evans and former triathlon and modern pentathlon World Champion and Head of Development at CBCF, Nici Andronicus.

 

For many brain cancer is a death sentence. Shaw and Partners was delighted to partner with CBCF as the premier partner of the Brainstorm for a Cure ball, to raise just shy of half a million dollars on the evening ($487,000). Shaw and Partners’ guests represented around 1/8 of the room, and significantly contributed to this amount. Moreover, the Shaw and Partners Foundation generously offered to match all ‘pledge contributions’ dollar for dollar up to a cap of $50,000. With research and collaboration being thought of as the keys to a cure, these funds will facilitate ongoing development across CBCF’s advocacy and awareness campaigns and improve access to treatment to assist CBCF in realising their time critical mission to increase five-year survival of brain cancer patients from the current 20% to 50% by 2023.
