The Silver Invite A Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Signature Event

Silver is one of Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation’s signature events, now in it’s 14th year, held at Bennelong at the Opera House and hailed Party of the Week every year by Sun Herald since inception, was the kick-off party for the year’s social calendar in Sydney.


This top charity fundraiser on Sydney’s social calendar, and attracts the great and good of Sydney society. Delectable bites were served by top chef Matt Moran and his team at ARIA, Moet & Chandon champagne toasts were raised, and shimmery cocktails were by Belvedere.

Silver 2014 aims to raise much needed funds for the Cardiothoracic Department at the Hospital. The money raised goes to specially train paediatric surgeons in Cardiothoracic Surgery and also fund new and vital equipment for the operating theatres. The complexity of caring for children with heart abnormalities not only spans clinical and nursing staff in this specific domain, but those in other areas of the hospital such as ICU.  Children as young as 6 months of age can require heart surgery, sometimes ‘interventional’ and the fixing of issues such as valve leaks, through to more complex conditions such as tumours on the heart and sudden heart failure.
