Having a ball for the RFDS

The RFDS delivers extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service throughout Australia. It is a not-for-profit organisation. It relies heavily on fundraising and donations from the community to purchase and medically equip its aircraft.'

Pilatus Australia is bringing three of Australia's best and best-known divas to perform at the RFDS's annual, fund-raising, prestigious black tie ball called Altitude - Jessica Mauboy, Dami Im and Reigan Derry.

RFDS Chief Executive Officer, Graham Marshall: "We are very excited that these wonderful Australian artists are performing at Altitude in what is a very special year for us the RFDS celebrating 80 years of service in WA. The number of people needing our services are today at record levels and growing every single year ... and we want to ensure that we're still here responding to the needs of the people of WA for another 80 years at least. To achieve this we need your help. Supporting our fundraising ball will help with costs involved in replacing, maintaining, and fitting out the organisation's aircraft - and in purchasing the essential medical equipment required to save lives. Without your contribution we couldn't achieve the successful life-saving outcomes for our patients that we
do."
