Uniting's first Seniors Ball in four years hits new heights

Renee England, Uniting’s Head of Seniors Services Sydney Central, take a bow.

Nearly 1000 staff, residents and their families turned out to party at Australian Turf Club’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse for the Not For Profit’s 24th annual Seniors Ball.

It is not a fund-raiser. It is solely a great way to say thank you to everyone at Uniting and is a highlight of NSW Seniors Week. It was the first Seniors Ball for four years due to COVID-19.

This year’s event embraced the theme of: Super heroes, Stars and Legends – A Star-Studded Affair, and featured dodgem cars, spinning tea cups, virtual reality and energetic dance moves.

Everyone attending transformed into their favourite icons and legends, mingling with many heroes, stars and stilt-walkers and creating a fantastic atmosphere.

Every residential aged care home was given a different theme and the residents really got into the event.

“The Seniors Ball provides a unique opportunity for residents, clients, families, and employees to unite, socialise, and celebrate our seniors with a positive and active spirit,” Renee said.
