The Breakwater Ball 2017 at ICMS

Glamorous Northern Beaches residents turned out to raise money for and to celebrate the life-changing work of two local charity organisations, Lifeline Northern Beaches and Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and canapés at the spectacularly sited International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) at the second Breakwater Ball held at the weekend. 

There was great turnout for the night of networking and raising funds for the two peninsula based non-for-profit organisations with live auctions, raffles and donations.

Local jewellers Mark Wildman and Brigitte Van Tulder, from MarkBridge Jewellers in Manly and Mona Vale, said the night was a great way to support the two charities.

“We were very pleased to attend the night and do our part to raise much-needed funds for Lifeline and Queensie,” said Brigitte.

The local jewellers sold several keys to attendees for the chance to successfully open a glass box containing a bespoke gold pendant, raising $5,000.

Media personality Mike Munro, spoke about challenges in his childhood and shared with guests the issues in pursuing a media career in journalism.

Throughout the night, Mr Munro commended the work of both Lifeline Northern Beaches and Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club.

The second annual Breakwater Ball event exceeded fundraising expectations and money raised will go towards the work of Lifeline Northern Beaches and Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club.
