Human Race Foundation Charity Ball
February 17, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Save for Later
The Human Race Foundation Charity Ball is a unique event which takes place in February every other year. The event provides a platform for the HRF and its members, friends, associates and partners to come together to support great causes, contemplate topical issues but above all, unwind and have a wonderful time.
For this event, we will be supporting the Sickle Cell Society. Having our origins in Africa and having lost some of our members to Sickle Cell related illness, issues around tackling Sickle Cell Disease hit close to home for us. We are proud to be supporting the Sickle Cell Society for the second time and all funds raised from any fundraising activities during the event will be donated to the Sickle Cell Society.

About the Sickle Cell Society
The Sickle Cell Society was first set up as a registered charity in 1979. It was formed by a group of patients, parents and health professionals who were all concerned about the lack of understanding and the inadequacy of treatment for people living with sickle cell disorders. It aims to empower and assist people with sickle cell disorders to achieve their full economic and social potential. http://www.sicklecellsociety.org
