About The Ball

The annual STARTTS Refugee Ball has established itself over the past decade as a key event in the social calendar of the multicultural and community services sector in Australia, every year raising vital funds for and awareness of the work that STARTTS does to assist people who have survived torture and trauma.

We invite you to join us to celebrate the 11th Refugee Ball and Fundraiser for a memorable evening of fine dining, fundraising and an energetic mix of world-class live music and cultural performance as we come together to help heal refugee trauma and promote respect for human rights.

We are delighted to announce, one of Australia’s most renowned and respected footballing identities and human rights advocates, SBS Chief Football Analyst, Presenter and Multicultural Broadcaster, Craig Foster will join us to deliver the 2019 Refugee Ball keynote address, alongside ABC Broadcaster and Presenter of The TicketTracey Lee Holmes as our MC and Host.

This year, funds raised at the Refugee Ball will go towards priority areas of the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT). and will also locally support the Multicultural Futsal Series (M-Series).
