Tuxedo Junction 2007-2019

We had a ball. We made a difference.

It is with heavy hearts that the Tuxedo Junction 2020 committee and production team announce that we have ceased production of Tuxedo Junction Charity Ball Supporting Cancer Council Victoria.

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you, as supporters of this event, you made our vision a reality; and our gratitude knows no bounds. Back in 2007 we started producing Melbourne’s best black-tie charity ball encompassing both style and substance with the aim of delivering $250,000 in net profit to Cancer Council Victoria to support cancer research from 3 events.  We now leave in 2020 having achieved our vision with 16 balls across 2 states, more than 4,000 guests and in excess of $1.4M in contribution for cancer research.

We ask, if possible for you in these unprecedented times, that you continue to donate to support cancer research and Cancer Council.  Although the curtain may have drawn on the Tuxedo Junction Ball, the need for cancer research funding never ends.  Even the smallest amount could make the biggest difference.

The Inspiration Behind Tuxedo Junction.

Life-long

Ambition

“So it has been a life long ambition for our family to try to help in some small way towards in improving bowel cancer outcomes and now the Cancer Council Victoria has given us that opportunity.

While for us this is a great tribute to our mother it is also for all the other families out there in the future. Ongoing and rigorous research in Australia is the only way to ensure that the other families don’t lose loved ones too soon.”

– Lina Caneva

 

“We live in a rapidly changing world and have doubtless all seen and experienced things we never imagined possible. Generous community support and decades of investment in world-class research have brought about a lifetime of progress in how we prevent, detect and treat cancer. But there is much more to do…   Cancer never rests and, with your help, neither will we.

Nights

Like These

“It’s nights like these that help so much.  Getting together for many laughs and good times. Tonight is about celebration.  It is nights such as this that have helped this man, my dad, to continue to have hope for the future, and with the right help, the right research and the right attitude, there is always hope.  Thanks Tuxedo Junction for the funds raised that, by extension, have helped keep my dad alive these 12 years.”

– Shelley Osler
