The upcoming Bruce Lynton Charity Ball will mark the 18th anniversary of the annual charity gala, during which time $1.8 million has been raised to assist local charities.

Bruce Lynton Dealer Principal Beric Lynton says the event, first held in 2001, “brings to life the mission and soul of the Bruce Lynton Automotive Group”.

“We’re a second-generation Gold Coast family owned and operated business, and have always been active members of the community,” said Mr Lynton.

This year’s Charity Ball will showcase fashion, celebrity, and cuisine. 

The three course meal will be prepared by RACV Royal Pines Resort Executive Chef, Glenn Bacon.

The events raise funds for local charities Cancer Council Queensland, Guide Dogs Queensland, 4 ASD Kids, Men Of Business, Youngcare and the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation.

Chloe Maxwell, 4 ASD founder says the Bruce Lynton Charity Ball is “hands down” one of the most prestigious and enjoyable charity balls she has attended.

“Our charity 4 ASD Kids has been lucky enough to be a beneficiary of this great night.

“[It] helps us provide much needed funds to autistic children and their families every year.”

Courtney Hancock, leading Ironwoman and Bruce Lynton Ambassador, is no stranger to the gala night festivities and encourages guests to “channel their wild side” for the 2018 event.

“While we cannot give away this year’s theme yet, it’s sure to excite and amuse like no other,” Ms Hancock said.

The 2018 Charity Ball will take place on Saturday 2 June, and the Bruce Lynton Charity Golf Day on Friday 1 June.
