The Susan Alberti Medical Research Foundation Signature Ball is arguably Melbourne’s most prestigious social calendar event. Founded 25 years ago by Susan Alberti, AO, HonLLD, to support fundraising efforts for Australian medical research, namely progress in finding a cure for type 1 (juvenile) diabetes.

The 2011 Ball again will showcase some of Australia’s finest talent with this year’s line-up including Jessica Mauboy accompanied by musical director Chong Lim and the Chong Lim Orchestra.

In addition there will be a silent auction, live auction and a unique section we call ‘Fund a Cure’.


The funds raised from this year’s Ball will be donated to the JDRF Islet Transplantation Program (ITP) in Australia. This program is a major, cohesive clinical and basic research program that directly engages and supports the activities of over 130 researchers across four States.

The ITP is contributing to growth in the global body of knowledge about islet transplantation and to direct progress in Australia, with the goal of delivering a more widely available treatment option for people with diabetes.
