Midwinter Ball 2023

Wednesday 3 July
Great Hall Parliament House

Charity submissions now open

The Midwinter Ball has been a big supporter of many, many charities over the years. We were thrilled to announce that we raised $362,500 for charity at this 2023 event. We can only do this because of the support of our sponsors and because of the help from the political leaders in Parliament House. Our charity auction is essential to raising this money, so we thank all those who helped: Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton and Qantas.

We are delighted that we were able to help the following charities: Dolly's Dream, Feel the Magic, Butterfly Foundation, Project Independence, ACT Wildlife, Rev. Bill Crews Foundation, Bosom Buddies, Arthritis ACT, Daniel Morcombe Foundation.


Welcome to the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery Midwinter Ball.

Traditionally held in the third week of June each year, it brings together the journalistic, political and corporate chiefs of Australia. It is always a memorable night full of entertainment and networking opportunities with the big winner being charity.
