Brainstorm for a Cure

This will be Brainstorm for a Cure’s fourth ‘Party for HOPE!.

In 2014, Brainstorm for a Cure came to life when 39-year-old brain cancer survivor (one of a tiny 5% of survivors), Sarah Mamalai, lost five dear friends to the same cruel disease as her own, a malignant brain tumor. One being her young soul ‘sista’, 15-year-old Dainere Anthoney. To honour their memories and save herself from sinking in grief, Sarah hatched the idea of creating a unique charity event – Brainstorm for a Cure. 

Last year the event sold out with two months to go. Event organisers anticipate this year’s event will also have a sell-out crowd, with over 800 people attending. Darryl Braithwaite has been announced as this year’s headline act, with the last two years also having been 5-star performers. Aussie rock legends, Hoodoo Gurus were the headline act last year and in 2015 Baby Animals rocked the room. All proceeds go to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. 

Brainstorm for a Cure is different to other gala fundraising events. It truly is a party with a vibrant atmosphere!


Since the inaugural event in 2014, Brainstorm for a Cure has raised $680,000 and the aim this year is to raise an additional $350,000.
