Sydney Cricket Ground hosts star-studded St. Vincent’s Life Ball

Delaware North’s team at Sydney Cricket Ground (Sydney, Australia) recently played host to 500 VIP guests – including guest of honor Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York – for the annual St. Vincent’s Life Ball, which raised $2.7 million (Australian currency) for the intensive care unit of St. Vincent’s Hospital Sydney.
The event had everything: royalty, celebrity, technology and – of course – wonderful hospitality.
