About our Ball
We are very excited to be taking the Giant Steps Ball to a new venue at the Hordern Pavilion this year and to celebrate our theme will be "Rio Carnivale"! We are hoping to sell out once again so recommend you get in early and purchase your tickets to avoid disappointment.
Our goal is to raise at least $350,000 to help Giant Steps provide vital services for children and young adults with autism.
The Giant Steps Rio Carnivale Ball will be held on Saturday, 21st June 2014 at the Hordern Pavilion, 1 Driver Avenue, Moore Park. Get your tickets before they sell out!
Returning to the Giant Steps Ball after a short absence will be The John Field Band. They always fill the dance floor to capacity and are one of the most popular bands who have performed at our ball.
We also have some fantastic Rio Carnivale themed entertaiment organised which promises surprise and delight.
Watch this space for news about who our MC will be..
Our popular Silent Auction will be returning and this year guests will be able to register to bid before the night and even place a bid using their smart phone or tablet both before and on the night!
