Hard Hats and Tiaras Resources Sector Ball

DateFri 2 Nov 2012
Time6.30pm - late
VenueBrisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
HostAusIMM and QRC

Presented by AusIMM and QRC

The inaugural Hard Hats and Tiaras Resources Sector Ball is the industry's opportunity to get together in a social setting, while raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

To be held on Friday 2 November at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, AusIMM and QRC see this as a key opportunity to assist people in remote communities throughout Australia, in which many of its members and members' employees and their families work and reside. We're sure you will too.

The ball will top off a week of resources sector activities at the 2012 Mining and Resources Convention.

Rhonda Burchmore, one of Australia's leading entertainers will compere the evening and perform between dance music provided by The Accidents, one of Brisbane's leading bands.

The evening will begin with a cocktail event featuring Todd Ross on piano and vocals and the Snowden 2012 Photography Competition exhibition, which is exhibited internationally.

A presentation of a big cheque to the RFDS will take place during the evening.

The Hard Hats and Tiaras Ball builds on the success of the AusIMM Mining Ball that has been held in Brisbane since 2005. The new-look event will provide an even better experience for guests.

It will also feature a High-Visibility fashion parade.

As well as supporting the event through attendance, there is a wide range of sponsorship opportunities available.
