Ev's Chance Black Tie Dinner | Wests Starlight Room | Saturday, 24. March 2018

A huge happy new year to all of you from the Ev’s chance team!

It was a truly merry Christmas for Evan and his family in 2017. Evan received news on the 20th of December that despite the odds, the experimental drug has worked! This reduced the metabolic rate of his cancer from a 5/5 to a 3/5 for the first time since being diagnosed. This is incredible news, and came as a shock to Evans family and his medical team as well. In light of this incredible news, Evan will be going ahead with a stem cell transplant on the 12th of February to hopefully put him in remission. Due to the nature of Evans cancer and his unorthodox treatment, the outcome is unclear, but hopefully will put him into long-term remission and give Evan an extended life expectancy of 5-10 years. In the unfortunate circumstance that the stem cell transplant is unsuccessful or only gives a short-term remission, the experimental drug is an option to fall back on to try and extend life expectancy, capped at $60 000 for a lifetime supply of the drug.

In light of this recent news, our fundraising goal is to support Evan and his family through the long, arduous process of recovering from a stem cell transplant, and in the case of remission, donate a portion to the haematology department at the Calvary Mater hospital to thank them for the incredible, supportive environment the staff have provided for Evan and many other patients.

SO, what better time for a party than helping Evan recover from his toughest treatment yet! We will have live music all night, an MC, balloon raffles, fundraising games, a silent auction for big-ticket items, and a photographer on the night to snap you at your fanciest.

The event will be held on Saturday, the 24th of March. Tickets are $140 per person. Your ticket will include champagne on arrival, dinner, dessert and a 5-hour drink package. The dress code is black tie so be sure to wear the fanciest get up you own!

There will be 30 tables of 10 on the night. We will be issuing invoices per table of 10. To assist us please organise your table and have one person from your group email to reserve your seats. If you cannot make up a table of 10 please let us know and we will do our best to fit everyone in. Please email evstickets@gmail.com to reserve a table/seats as well as any dietary requirements you may have. Please note this event is 18+.
