Over $90,000 was raised through tickets sales, donations and auctions called on the night by Queensland’s chief auctioneer Ben Brady. All funds raised went to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation supports Australian diabetes research via the strategic provision of funding, investing over $100 million into Australian research to date.
“When we were planning the first North Queensland Jelly Baby ball a few years ago, the Harcourts Foundation were there, doing anything that they can to help. Anyone in the Harcourts Group has a heart of gold in my opinion”, said Damien Keyes, Host of the 2013 Jelly Baby Ball.
Ella Reid from Harcourts Townsville City and Beaches who was a gold sponsor on the night said, “Juvenile Diabetes is a condition that affects so many people in our community, we hope that we can contribute in a positive way that makes not only the lives of people living with diabetes but their family and loved ones.”Press Release, Queensland
