White Ribbon Ball

Why the Ball?

Many thanks to everyone that supported the 2016 event, raising $26,000 to stop violence in the Northern Territory.

Violence against women costs the Australian economy $14.4 billion every year and a significant portion of those costs come directly from the Territory economy as we have the highest incidence of domestic violence per capita.
