Key members of the media and advertising industry have banded together to create the inaugural MAD Ball, a charity ball supporting the young people of Australia.
Members of the NINE Network, Austereo, Fairfax, Pacific Magazines, Adshel, ZenithOptimedia and TOTAL Advertising & Communications have come together to create the first MAD Ball to be held on Friday 3 November at Doltone House, Pyrmont.
As distinct from award nights, the MAD Ball is a formal charity evening promising a great networking opportunity for the young media and advertising industry players. MAD Ballers will be treated to great food, drinks and entertainment and will have the opportunity to win some amazing prizes.
All money made from the MAD Ball will be donated to the INSPIRE Foundation – supporting Australia’s young people.
“Our main objective, besides making sure everyone who comes to the MAD Ball has a terrific night, is to raise awareness of the INSPIRE Foundation whose work with the youth of Australia is both inspirational and invaluable,” said Shaun Morgan from the Nine Network, Chairman of MAD Ballers Incorporated.
The INSPIRE Foundation is a national non-profit organisation formed in 1996 by Jack Heath - a finalist in the 2005 Australian of the Year Awards. Jack founded INSPIRE in response to Australia’s then escalating rates of youth suicide. INSPIRE’s mission is to create opportunities for young people to help themselves and others who may be encountering tough times in their lives.
All proceeds from the MAD Ball will go to assist three INSPIRE national programs: Reach Out!, Beanbag and ActNow. For more information on INSPIRE go to
The inaugural MAD Ball is a media and advertising industry evening not to be missed.
Tables of 10 are available @ $1600 per table.
Table bookings and ticket purchases can be made through
