Escape a cold winter's night on Saturday, 11 August 2018 for a warm welcome and fun-filled night supporting research into a group of rare blood cancers in one of Adelaide's finest venues.

As well as raising funds for a great cause (see the end of this article to learn more), why else should you attend this fundraising diner?

Here are five more reasons:

1. Brilliant band
Move and grove to Soul'd Out, a progressive modern sounding dance band with the versatility to play and captivate all genres of music. This six-piece band comprises of individuals with different musical influences covering Rock, Jazz, Cabaret and Soul and these styles are infused to capture a unique solid sound.

Soul'd out is Adelaide talent coming together to create a dance and musical experience - while assisting in vital funding for MPN research.

2. Awesome auction items
Fancy a stay in Carinya Homestead, Mel Gibson's old homestead? Or how's about an Adelaide Crows 2018 signed squad Guernsey? The more adventurous might fancy a Helistar helicopter ride over the Barossa.... There's fine wine, beautiful gift baskets, a variety of great services and lots, lots more to bid for.

And don't forget to bring your loose change!

3. Fabulous food
As well as great entertainment, you'll also get a sumptuous 3-course dinner AND your beverages (wine, beer, soft drinks).

Donato and Mimi De Ieso, the husband and wife team behind the Grand Ballroom are both qualified chefs, and have more than 40 years combined experience. Using fresh, seasonal produce in their culinary creations for this event, they will tempt every taste bud and cater for every dietary requirement (please let them know at the time of booking of any special diets).

4. Superb venue
The newly-renovated Grand Ballroom at 443 Tapleys Hill Road Fulham Gardens, SA 5024 boasts elegant decorations and finishings.

This stylish venue is perfect for a night of fine dining and entertainment.

5. Fun
Most of all you'll be having fun on these cold Adelaide nights! The dress attire is 'neat', so you don't have to go overboard, but it is an excuse to dress up if you want.

So what are you waiting for? Grab some friends, book your tickets and prepare yourself for a great night!

Tickets can be bought via the eventbrite website.

The cause
All money raised will go towards research into Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs). These are a group of rare blood cancers, in which various blood cells proliferate uncontrollably, as a result of a number of different gene mutations which are acquired during the patient's life.

They can affect anyone, and they need constant monitoring and management by medical specialists.

These cancers can significantly impact on quality of life and cause a host of symptoms, most dangerously thrombosis and heart attacks.
