Sydney-based charity Waves of Wellness is the brainchild of Joel Pilgrim, who decided that it was time to do something about the rate of mental health problems experienced in Australia by getting more people out on surfboards. Each year the charity assists countless people who suffer from depression, anxiety and bi polar disorder, just to name a few, all in the name of one of Australia’s favourite pastimes, while getting some highly underrated vitamin D.
The Waves of Wellness Black Tie Ball is just about the only time of year you’ll see these guys not decked out in fluoro, and is back on in Sydney on October 21. $195 gets you a seat at the table (or grab a corporate table and chip in a few extra tax-deductible De Niros). The night will feature three courses of tasty tucker from the Four Season’s award winning kitchen and a five hour beverage package, as well as a bunch of prizes and live auctions. This is always a great night and a seriously good cause – get involved now.
