We’d like to share a BIG THANKS to everyone in the community who made our 2019 Rio Charity Ball such a huge success!

On Saturday, March 23rd, we hosted the Rio Carnival Charity Ball in Melbourne. Each year we organise a fun-filled charity event for the community full of dancing, live entertainment, unlimited drinks, 3-course dinner and raffle prizes. Thanks to the support of the community and our sponsors, the Rio Charity Ball in 2019 was the LARGEST and most successful event we've ever had!

As published in The Philippine Times (Australia) April edition, we raised a record total of over $17,000 net in one night from ticket sales, donations, sponsors and raffle tickets! The funds raised will go towards various medical, education and emergency relief missions in the Philippines.

Proceeds raised from the Rio Charity Ball attracted 460 guests and raised an outstanding total over $17,000 from ticket sales, donations and sponsors, which will fully contribute to funding real charity missions in the Philippines.

Well done everyone!

We would like to thank everyone for their support and involvement, including our major sponsors LK Travel, Philippine ToursMy Travel Solution, Charlie & Tina Yao, Duxton Allcare, minor sponsors, volunteers and the GORGEOUS ladies who dressed up for the stunning Rio Carnival pageant competition! As noted in the article, we will be allocating proceeds to our next major medical mission in partnership with the Maharlika Foundation, which will be held in Tawi Tawi (read more about Tawi Tawi) this June, as well as other missions later this year. Stay tuned for updates on our Facebook page!

We hope to see you next time at our International Cultural Charity Ball!

SBS interview of the author at:

In the 70s, Imelda Argel had a rising career as a top corporate lawyer in Manila, Philippines. A painful betrayal forced her to restart life as a single mother in Sydney, Australia in 1988, where she struggled with discrimination, often viewed as little more than a “mail order bride”.

In this memoir, she offers insights and practical stories on how she faced challenges in her new country, battling the odds to regain recognition of her qualifications while coping with a downshift in lifestyle but eventually winning awards for her professional and community contributions
