Our special event has been postponed to May 2022

Dear Supporters,

We have made the disappointing decision to postpone the Halo Ball to May 2022, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Delta outbreak.

A new date for Friday 6 May 2022 has been secured.

We’ve sent communication to all our ticket holders, and encourage you to be in touch with us if you need to via E: melanie@melaniehendraevents.com or P: 0407 674 445

Ticket, table and sponsorship sales for the new 2022 date will reopen early next year.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and we hope to see you in 2022, if not sooner!

THE EXPERIENCE OF WOMEN IN LOCKDOWN

BaptistCare HopeStreet recently spoke with ABC’s The Drum and ABC News to share our insights about how it has become increasingly complex for our HopeStreet counsellors and case workers to assist women experiencing violence in their homes.  Many of our clients are restricted in accessing support while trapped in their home with a violent partner during the current restrictions.  The windows of opportunity we have to connect with these women are often fleeting and deeply worrying for us.

ABOUT THE HALO BALL

On 28 February 2015, Tara Costigan, a mother of three and a BaptistCare employee, was brutally murdered by her ex-partner. Her violent death from domestic violence sent shock waves through her family, friends, her local community and BaptistCare’s workforce.

In response to her tragic death, calls for change became the inspiration for BaptistCare HopeStreet’s first ever Halo Ball.

Every year the Halo Ball raises vital funds to support BaptistCare HopeStreet’s essential support services for women and children, as we seek to end the cycle of abuse and build safer families.

Through the generosity of our supporters and guests, over the past four years we have raised nearly half a million dollars, and these vital funds have gone directly to our frontline services.

Help us raise much-needed funds to break the cycle of abuse.

BaptistCare considers the health and safety of our guests to be of the utmost importance.
The 2022 Halo Ball will be a COVIDSafe event.
