Sony Foundation, with the support of the Sony Companies, hosts several key fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for our major charity campaigns. Our two largest annual fundraisers are Wharf4Ward (Sydney) and River4Ward (Melbourne).

Wharf4Ward has become established on Sydney’s calendar as one of the most important events of the year. Hosted across all six restaurants on Sydney’s iconic Woolloomooloo Wharf and attended by 800 guests, very few charity luncheons come close to having the gravitas of Wharf4Ward.

Wharf4Ward was recently awarded ‘Best Charity or Cause-Related Event’ for NSW at the Australian National Event Awards 2016.

River4Ward has become established on Melbourne’s (as Australia’s second largest city) social calendar as one of the most important events of the year. Sony Foundation has created a most unique event, achieving the near impossible and constructing a floating stage on the river.
500 guests are treated to first class dining in a purpose built marquee on the banks of the Yarra River and entertained by show-stopping performances from Sony Music artists. The lunch, which raises money for Sony Foundation’s You Can program, has successfully funded the Melbourne You Can Centre.

River4Ward received ‘Best Charity or Cause-Related Event’ for Victoria after its first year at the Australian National Event Awards in 2015.
