STEPS Managing Director, Carmel Crouch, expressed her excitement for this year's event, saying, "The STEPS Grand Winter Ball is a remarkable celebration of hope and determination. We are immensely grateful to our presenting partner, Prima Commercial Fitouts, and all the partners, donors, and attendees who have made this year’s Ball possible. This evening is about empowering our students at STEPS Pathways College to embrace their potential and live life to the fullest."


The STEPS Grand Winter Ball serves as a major fundraising event for STEPS Pathways College, a unique education and training institution that equips young adults with disabilities and autism with vital skills and opportunities for an independent and fulfilling life. The proceeds from the Ball will go towards expanding the College's programs and providing life-changing experiences for its students.


The highlight of the evening will be a captivating performance by the talented singer, Paulini, who is currently wowing audiences on Channel 7's Dancing with the Stars. Her soulful voice and engaging presence are sure to mesmerise guests, making it a night to remember.
