The Children’s Cancer Institute
The Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer, with a focus on translational research, making sure discoveries are progressed into actual treatments for kids with cancer as quickly as possible.
Since 2016, Freedom Kitchens has donated a $20,000 kitchen auction prize for their annual Diamond Ball fundraising dinner, with proceeds going directly to the CCI’s research.
In 2017, Freedom Kitchens once again supported CCI’s Diamond Ball in both Sydney and Melbourne, donating a $20,000 kitchen for the Sydney event, and a money-can’t-buy experience of a tour of The Block houses in Melbourne.
The inaugural Melbourne event was incredibly successful and raised more than $350,000, whilst the annual Sydney event raised a massive $850,000 for childhood cancer research.
UPDATE: The results from this year’s Diamond Ball 2018 are in – and it’s record breaking! The Freedom kitchen sold at auction for an amazing $18,000 this year, which is $2000 up on last year!
The total amount raised from the evening was $1.12M – a substantial figure which can make a real difference.
