The Institute for Glycomics Grand Ball is an annual event to raise funds for our ground-breaking research
The Institute for Glycomics Grand Ball is an annual black-tie event which is supported by Griffith University as well as the local and broader community.
It's an unforgettable night including a delicious three course meal, four-hour beverage package (beer, cider, red wine, white wine, sparkling wine, soft drinks), exciting raffle and auction prizes, entertainment from a live band and a special feature comedy act.

INSTITUTE FOR GLYCOMICS 20TH ANNIVERSARY GRAND BALL UPDATE
In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus crisis, the new Government regulations that have been put into place, and the impact this is all having on local businesses and community events, it’s with deep regret that we have decided to cancel the Institute for Glycomics 20th Anniversary Grand Ball which was scheduled for 15 August 2020.
We didn’t come to this decision lightly, however we feel it is the best course of action given the current and developing situation.
However, we are pleased to inform you that we are working closely with the hotel venue to secure a date for our Grand Ball in 2021, which we will celebrate as our 21st birthday/anniversary, and we anticipate that this will be a powerful celebration indeed, one that we can share as a community who stuck by each other through a difficult time, and came out stronger on the other side.
We will provide an update as soon as we are able.
In the meantime, we wish you and yours all the very best in these unsettling times. Stay safe and healthy and, rest assured, we are doing our best to fight this disease, as is our mission here at the Institute for Glycomics to fight the world’s most devastating diseases.
