Ruby Ball Gibraltar

£22,570 raised at our 40th Anniversary Ruby Ball Celebration 

For 40 years, Cancer Relief has been a pillar of support for those affected by cancer in the community. Last month on Saturday 21st October 2023, we celebrated these 40 years with a spectacular Ruby Ball.  

It is with extreme gratitude that we announce an incredible £22,570 was raised on the night! We can’t thank our wonderful community enough, none if this would have been possible without you all.  

The Ruby Ball, held at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel, was a spectacular affair, resplendent in hues of red and gold, paying homage to the charity’s 40 years of service. The venue was decorated by the wonderful team at Hour Weddings who ensured elegance was kept throughout and creating a warm atmosphere that set the stage for an unforgettable evening.

The room buzzed with excitement as old friends and new connections were forged, all in the spirit of a shared commitment to the charity’s mission.  

During the event, our Chairperson Marisa Desoiza and CEO Grainne McKenna took the opportunity to thank everyone for attending and said a few words about how far the charity has come. Both also thanked all for their continuous support throughout those years.  

After the speeches the night began. We listened and danced to some wonderful music from local band O.L.L.I which was loved by all in attendance. O.L.L.I was then followed by local DJ DalliFlow who kept the night going to the early hours of the morning. Cancer Relief are extremely grateful to both talents for donating their time and making our Ruby Ball a night to remember.  



The Ruby Ball was more than a celebration of a milestone; it was a testament to the power of collective compassion and support. As we look ahead to the next chapter, we do so with gratitude for the past, a sense of purpose for the present and boundless hope for the future. Here’s to the next 40 years of providing support to those affected by cancer in the community.
