This iconic Australian charity campaign for Children’s Medical Research Institute is celebrating 25 years!

One of the highlights on the 2018 anniversary calendar is the glittering Denim Dinner which raises much-needed funds to beat genetic childhood diseases. In 2017 the theme was Stars Come Out for Research, and they certainly did. Celebrities like Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur mixed with the researchers from Children’s Medical Research Institute, at the event that is designed as a major fundraiser of the Jeans for Genes campaign.


    Saturday 21 July 2018. 6:30pm drinks on arrival. 7:30pm start, to conclude at 11:30pm.

A Night of Excellence


The annual Denim Dinner is a fantastic way for the corporate and wider community to show its support for vital research into childhood genetic diseases.

T’was the night of nights for fundraising, and the Jeans for Genes Excellence Ball lived up to its reputation on 24th June 2016. Olympic Swimmer Daniel Kowalski did an outstanding job as our Master of Ceremonies. And we gained insights into what is takes to overcome adversity with Jeans for Genes Ambassador, Sally Obermeder and Paralympic Gold Medalist, Ellie Cole.

"I truly believe that research is the only reason we still have Linke with us today." - Linke's mother, Rene

Linke was told she wouldn’t live to see her second birthday. Medical research was the difference between life and death.


Thanks to the support of our partners, the Denim Dinner is helping Children’s Medical Research Institute improve the future of children and their families everywhere. We’re proud to call them our partners and are inspired by their generosity.
