About Us

This will be Brainstorm for a Cure’s sixth ‘Party for HOPE’. In 2014, Brainstorm for a Cure came to life when 39-year-old brain cancer survivor (one of a tiny 5% of survivors), Sarah Mamalai, lost five dear friends to the same cruel disease as her own, a malignant brain tumor. One being her young soul ‘sista’, 15-year-old Dainere Anthoney. To honour their memories and save herself from sinking in grief, Sarah hatched the idea of creating a unique charity event – Brainstorm for a Cure.

Last year we sold out within weeks. We anticipate this year’s event will also have a sell-out crowd, with over 800 people attending. Previous headline acts have included Aussie rock legends, Daryl Braithwaite, Hoodoo Gurus, Baby Animals and Jon Stevens. All proceeds go to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.

Brainstorm for a Cure is different to other gala fundraising events. It truly is a party with a vibrant atmosphere!
