NCIG staff, supporters and suppliers are set to get out of their hi-vis orange and swap the terminal for the dance floor in support of the NCIG bi-annual Charity Ball.

This year’s recipient is a Hunter institution; the John Hunter Children’s Hospital who are seeking funding to enhance their 4-bed bedrooms on H1 – the busiest ward in the hospital.

The first Charity Ball was held in 2012 as a celebration for the opening NCIG Facility Stage 2AA, a great milestone for not only NCIG but everyone who had worked so hard on the project. The charity Harry’s House was the beneficiary of the inaugural event.

The event was seen as a huge success and with the incorporation of Harry’s House as a fundraising element the event exceeded NCIG’s expectations so it was decided to continue the event as another way that NCIG can show its support for the community in which they operate.

The event is a highlight for the company, with the Charity Ball organised and run by a voluntary in-house committee who do a great job in coming together to create a wonderful event for those who attend,.

It’s not just NCIG who dig deep for this event with contractors and vendors showing their support by sponsoring the event.

“This year we are lucky to have so many of them on board” acknowledged NCIG CEO Aaron Johansen

“We have strong relationships with all of our contractors and vendors which is a reflection of the positive workplace culture we strive for here at NCIG and is a credit to our employees” he continued.

Aurizon, Doito, Downer, Geared Engineering, Goldsprings, Mailec, New Hunter Industrial Services, Port Authority of NSW, Port Hunter Conveyor Group, RCR Energy, Remondis and Wheeler Cranes are all supporting the 2018 Charity Ball which will assist in raising much needed funds for this year’s recipient.

More than $400,000 has been donated to various charities that do their work in Newcastle and the Hunter Region, such as the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation, Lifeline Newcastle/Hunter, Australian Artificial Pancreas Program and the Hunter Women's Centre.

Beneficiaries are chosen by NCIG employees who are called to nominate a charity of their choice.

All nominated charities are put through a due diligence process. A selection of three charities is made by the Executive Leadership Team, with the final vote going to NCIG employees
