2024 Event

Bean Counters Ball 2024

The Bean Counters Ball 2024 will be held on Saturday 25 May 2024 at the Newcastle Exhibition and Convention Centre (the NEX).

This will be the twelfth Bean Counters Ball where we are aiming to exceed the $50,000 fundraising goal for our charity partners. To date, we have raised over $300,000 for Samaritans and the Hunter TAFE Foundation. This has contributed to supporting underprivileged youth with student accommodation and providing scholarships for Hunter TAFE students.

The 2024 theme is Arcade – promising a night full of gaming, nostalgia, and a chance to dust off those arcade skills! Guests will be treated to a night of arcade-themed entertainment, as well as real arcade games – and most importantly, the opportunity to help raise money for our charity partners.

What to expect at the event

The Bean Counters Ball is always an extraordinary evening of fun and entertainment in support of a worthy cause!

Guests can expect a three-course meal, with entertainment throughout the night. You will also hear from our Chair, Daniel Drayton, and Co-Chair, Raj Sirimanne, as well as guest speakers who are supported by our charity partners.

Attendees will have the chance to score some great prizes in our lucky dip, mystery wine and raffle draws. And of course, the night always finishes with a boogie on the dancefloor!
