About River4Ward

Since 2015, Melbourne’s VIPs from Government, Business, Media and entertainment come together for an entertainment luncheon like no other, united under one shared purpose to raise funds for young Australians with cancer.

Held overlooking the city of Melbourne at Crown Aviary, the event takes over two stages for 400 guests and to date, has raised millions of dollars.

The event attracts not only all the major media companies in Australia but prominent businesses and has been fortunate enough to have Premier of Victoria, Hon. Daniel Andrews speak a number of times.

Celebrities who attend and show their support have included; Eddie McGuire, Carrie Bickmore, Tommy Little, Molly Meldrum, Rebecca Maddern, Nick Reiwoldt, Neroli Meadows, Ann Peacock.

River4Ward 2022 will be held on April 28, at Crown Aviary in Melbourne. 

Tickets are currently only available to Corporate Partners, please contact karen@sonyfoundation.org.au to discuss Corporate Partner opportunities.
