Fundraising for the Greater Warrandyte CFAs
$80,000 handed over!
The Fireball committee were excited to finally hand over the $80K cheque to the team at South Warrandyte CFA. To be able to upgrade their Forward Control Vehicle, which will be a dedicated volunteer vehicle, was on their wishlist for a while.
Thanks to the Greater Warrandyte Community, supporters of Manningham Council and the Mayor of the time, Andrew Conlon, Fireball was able to fulfill this dream and we can't wait to see the vehicle when it is all kitted out!
Thank you to all our sponsors, donors, guests and valued supporters of Fireball - you made this happen!
The Fireball committee have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Fireball until next year. In the current climate, we feel it is unfair to ask businesses to sponsor or donate while they are recovering from COVID-19.
We are ever so grateful that Bramleigh Estate in Warrandyte is still on board to support a Fireball in 2021 and we look forward to sharing more details about the event, which has been rescheduled to Friday 22 October, 2021

Fireball is coming back to Warrandyte!
Thanks to our new major sponsor - Bramleigh Estate in Warrandyte.
The team at Bramleigh have so graciously donated their venue, staff, food and all costs to Fireball 2020.....completely FREE!!
We are so grateful for the support of our new local venue, who share our appreciation of our local CFA volunteers, their sacrifices and their commitment to our community.
It is an amazing offer to donate everything completely free and we are so excited for what that will do in order to raise big $$$ at the 2020 Fireball.
Thank you Bramleigh Estate for valuing our local fireys like we do!

The Fireball Committee are so thrilled by the amazing result from the 2018 Mayoral Fireball held on 27 October.
Unfortunately we are still waiting on some payments for auction items. But the funds raised by you, to help our CFA brigades is shaping up to be in excess of $80K!
A huge thank you goes out to the Mayor of Manningham Council , Cr Andrew Conlon for choosing Fireball as the beneficiary of his Mayoral Ball event and for inviting the Fireball Committee to be a part of organising the event.
We would also like to thank all our sponsors again, who's generous support really boosts the $$$ for our CFA brigades.
And the community....WOW....you did not disappoint us with your participation in the online auction and of course carving up the dance floor on the night. What a fun night!
We hope you can celebrate this amazing result wish us and we will be sure to share more news as we move forward to purchasing that new Forward Control Vehicle for the CFA volunteers.
So much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ from the Fireball team to all of you! Thank you for making our mission of easing the burden of fundraising from the CFA volunteers, a reality.
See you at the next Fireball! 😉

Tonight at the Manningham Emergency Services Reception it was announced that we will be holding another Fireball this year!
Every year the Mayor of Manningham City Council hosts an annual ball. The Mayor often chooses a charity to raise funds for at this event. This year, the Mayor, Andrew Conlon, who is also a local resident, has chosen Fireball (which supports the Greater Warrandyte CFA brigades), as his chosen charity.
The Fireball Committee are so excited to be involved and look forward to delivering another amazing Fireball with Manningham City Council.
1 NOVEMBER, 2017
We are pleased to share that Fireball was named a finalist in the highly competitive 2017 Fire Awareness Awards.
Fireball has been named a finalist in the Community Prevention and Preparedness category and the committee will attend an awards ceremony on 4 December.
The Fireball Committee are so excited that our event and our local CFA volunteers will be recognised for their efforts.
We did it guys! Fireball handed the keys over for the Greater Warrandyte CFA's new slip-on!
Because you made Fireball a success, the new slip-on was delivered to the CFA now, rather than taking years to fundraise the cash.
This vehicle will make our volunteers safer for the upcoming fire season.
See pics of the new slip-on and read all about it in this months edition of the Warrandyte Diary....out today!

FRIDAY 17 JUNE, 2016
There is a new venue for Fireball in 2016!
More elegant, more luxurious and better access to transport, the Park Hyatt in East Melbourne is now the new home of Fireball.
In their beautiful ballroom, Fireball is now an all sit down event with a delicious three course meal, flowing champagne, beer, wine and soft drink.
Book a table or just a few tickets all for the one ticket price of $175 each.
Discount parking, access to public transport and of course serviceable by taxis and Uber, the Park Hyatt makes getting to and from home Fireball much easier than ever before. Why not make a night of it and book a hotel room or a limo!
Now more than ever our CFA VOLUNTEERS need our support.
Join us to celebrate the great crews we have in Wonga Park and the three Warrandyte CFA's and let’s enjoy the bigger and better Fireball.
We can't wait to see you there!
A BIT MORE:
When will tickets go on sale?
We are busily amending our website and ticketing sites. We expect tickets to go on sale early next week.
Why are we changing venue?
The appropriate permit was unable to be secured by the venue. They weren’t able to get an amendment to the State Government Planning Scheme.
Why not a local venue?
The demand for Fireball requires us to use a venue that can cater to our capacity. With October positioned in the midst of wedding season, the Park Hyatt is the best option available with services to the city and provides a suitable venue which is consistent with the calibre of event that is Fireball.
