Important Update Regarding Star Ball Sydney 2020
On behalf of the Star Ball Sydney committee, it is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Star Ball Sydney, scheduled for Saturday 29th August 2020, has been cancelled. We are sure this will come as no surprise, but we did wish to let you know personally. The global health situation and uncertainty regarding ongoing restrictions on large gatherings means we simply cannot proceed as planned.

We sincerely thank our loyal supporters, everyone who has booked to attend, our sponsors, suppliers and all those who had been working so hard to bring the 2020 Star Ball Sydney to life.
We will be offering full refunds to anyone who has already purchased a ticket to Star Ball Sydney in 2020, and organisers will be in touch with those affected in the coming weeks. Starlight ask that you consider converting your table purchase into a tax-deductible donation, to continue to support their vital programs during this difficult time. Organisers will be in touch with you to discuss your options, and your patience with the administrative process is much appreciated.
If you are able to support Starlight during this time, please donate directly at www.starlight.org.au/donate/.
If restrictions are lifted and we are in a position to do so this year, we will bring another fantastic fundraising event to the Sydney community in support of Starlight. We look forward to welcoming you when that time comes.
Rest assured Star Ball Sydney will be back in 2021!
Best wishes to you and your family at this challenging time. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,

Karl Truijens and Greg Rudolph
Star Ball Sydney Co-Chairs
On behalf of the Star Ball Sydney Committee

Michael Morgan


Michael Morgan is a 24 year old singer-song writer from the Sunshine Coast. Music entered his life when he was diagnosed with a rare medical condition at the age of 14. He began to play guitar as a way to distract himself from what was happening in his life. He is a self-taught musician with both singing and guitar. He taught himself to sing by listening to old vinyl records of his favourite musicians. Song-writing soon followed as a way of expressing himself of all his life experiences, now having dozens of original songs. The Starlight Children’s Foundation made his dreams come true by granting his wish of being able to receive his dream guitar. ‘Music has given me purpose and meaning to my life. I feel that it is what I was born to do. I feel honoured now to be able to come back to the Star Ball and say thank you.’
