Sienna’s Gala Dinner is about raising awareness and funds for neuroblastoma; an aggressive children’s cancer. Our first event was in March 2010 and so far, these dinners have raised over $410,000 for vital research.

In 2019 our aim was to raise over $100,000 and with the help of our incredible supporters we succeeded. The profits will go towards supporting vital neuroblastoma projects to find a cure for this children’s cancer.

About Sienna

In 2008 Sienna was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, she was just nine months old.

After seven months of gruelling treatments Sienna responded well. The tumour was successfully removed and Sienna was in remission. In late 2009 Sienna relapsed and after a very brave fight and more treatment Sienna tragically lost her battle on the 3 February 2010. Sienna is the daughter of Neuroblastoma Australia President, Lucy Jones and her husband Oliver.
