Cure Brain Cancer ‘Enchanted’ Ball

Leading neurosurgeon Professor Charlie Teo and legendary artist Jimmy Barnes will head a star-studded evening ball in the name of a charity with which Volvo has a deep association.

The Enchanted Gala Ball will raise proceeds on 6th May for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, the charity proudly sponsored by Volvo Cars.

Volvo is in the seventh year as main corporate partner for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation – a natural synergy for two organisations that share a commitment to developing pioneering, life-saving technology aiming to save lives.

Volvo actively contributes to the Foundation, which benefits from the sale of every Volvo. To date, Volvo has raised more than $1 million, and in 2016 the company received the Leadership in Corporate Giving award from Research Australia.

Professor Charlie Teo, the renowned neurosurgeon who founded the charity in 2001, is guest speaker for the black-tie event, which asks attendees to add a “touch of enchantment” to their outfits.

Entertainment across a three-course dinner held in the Grand Ballroom of Sydney’s International Convention Centre will be provided by a famous father and son combination.

Singing legend Jimmy Barnes will perform during the evening, while offspring David Campbell will play host.

While it’s too late to attend the event, you can donate to the CBCF by clicking on curebraincancer.org.au/donations. Alternatively, you can phone 1300 362 965 or 02 9550 5244, or mail a cheque to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, PO Box 392, Surry Hills, NSW 2010.

I Roll

Volvo is Latin for 'I roll' and was originally trademarked in 1915 with ball bearing production in mind. But 18 million cars later, Volvo has come to mean much more. 

Volvo started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. Along the way we’ve come up with dozens of innovations, some of which have changed the world. And it’s this proud history that continues our drive forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.
