Masquerade Ball: ‘Unmasking Preterm Birth’

Melbourne’s health, sporting, business and philanthropic community is set to usher in autumn in grand style as it unites for a highly anticipated event at the MCG to benefit mothers and babies at risk of preterm birth.

To be held at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday, 29 February 2019, the Masquerade Ball: ‘Unmasking Preterm Birth’, promises to be an unforgettable evening of exquisite food, wine, entertainment and insight, and will shine a light on the pioneering work of the Women & Infants Research Foundation to prevent early birth and pregnancy loss.

Channel Nine news reporter, Jayde Vincent, will MC the event which will also feature the world leading authority in the field of preterm birth prevention and finalist in the 2020 Australian of the Year Awards, Seniors category, Professor John Newnham AM. The night will feature the incredible sounds of well-known Melbourne band Matt Bradshaw & G-Force, as well as a stunning bespoke cocktail menu and beverage selection designed by the MCG’s Chef de Cuisine, Renee Guymer and the renowned team at Epicure. We also have a spectacular array of auction and raffle prizes to be won.
