WA Surgeons Ball - 10 November 2017

Arabian Nights is the theme of the 2017 WA Surgeons Ball, which will be held on Friday 10 November at Crown Towers. Guests can expect a night of mystery and intrigue, with a wide range of entertainment on offer throughout the night.
As well as being a night of good natured fun, the ball also has a serious side and is an excellent opportunity to raise funds for the Foundation for Surgery. Last year's event raised $22,850 which helped support a team of four surgeons to the region of Papua, Indonesia, to provide much needed critical surgical support and training for local practitioners.
We hope to do the same this year for another region.

Tickets are on sale now at  RACS WA, or you can contact the local office for more information.

Book early as this event will sell out!!


We give special thanks to our Foundation Sponsors:
Chellingworth
Perth Radiological Clinic 

and welcome
SKG Radiology.
