Margaritas, maracas and mexicana: the 2015 Bear by Night Ball

More than $310,000 was raised at PMH Foundation’s 16th annual Bear by Night Ball in March this year.

Over 500 guests joined PMH Foundation at the Tom Wilding Pavilion at Claremont Showgrounds on Saturday 14 March for a captivating evening inspired by the vibrant colour and exotic beauty of Mexico.

The night was one of colour and excitement as guests enjoyed the lively atmosphere and danced amongst hundreds of paper flowers, hand-decorated table numbers and colourful piñatas.

Bear by Night Ball volunteers

Our wonderful volunteers with the hundreds of paper flowers they prepared for the Ball.

One of PMH Foundation’s biggest fundraising events of 2015, guests were treated to the food, entertainment, and beauty of Mexico while raising much-needed funds to help purchase a state-of-the-art Hybrid Theatre for the Perth Children’s Hospital.

The event could not have happened without the help of staff members and interns who contributed their time on the night to greet guests, supervise stalls and assist with the live and silent auctions. We also had a fabulous team of volunteers give up their time in the days leading up to the event who helped make the hundreds of paper flowers and other decorations which gave the event a special, heartfelt touch.

PMH Foundation is truly appreciative of all our Bear by Night Ball sponsors, without whom the event would not happen. We’d like to give a very special thank you to major sponsor Technip Oceania who supported the Bear by Night Ball for the third year in a row.

A special thankyou is also in order for all the other event sponsors Aggreko, AV Partners, Larry Cherubino Wines, Phenomenon Event Services, Scott Print and The West Australian and the countless other organisations and individuals who made the event a wonderful night!

Muchas gracias amigos!
