Why Halloween?

The Ball is themed around Halloween and provides a focal point for delivering the scare4rare awareness campaign. It delivers a strong challenge to let good prevail on a day traditionally known for its darkness. At the heart of the Ball, are the patients and carers impacted by a RLC cancer diagnosis. Our guests come united with a deep desire to help improve and better the outcomes for this group of patients and their families, whilst enjoying the fun and spirit of Halloween festivities.

Guests are encouraged to come in costume. This year’s Halloween Ball will be themed Mad Scientist and will focus on innovation and research, aligning with our hope for progressive and innovative solutions and outcomes for RLC cancers. Now in its fifth year, the Ball is fast becoming the Halloween charity event to attend.

So this Halloween, we are asking you to Think like a proton, always positive! RCA would like to invite all mad scientists, the thinkers and the inventors, to join us on a quest to problem solve, to innovate and to dream of the impossible. Halloween themed with a Mad Scientist twist - it's anything but vial, so gather your favourite specimens and form a table!

100 per cent of proceeds raised will help fund important work in research, advocacy, patient support and treatment, community education and awareness.
