Now in it's 5th year, the annual batyr Blue Tie ball is a party with a purpose and this year we are stoked to announce 7 times world surfing champion Layne Beachley as our guest speaker and TV and radio personality Gus Worland as our MC for the night

Including a two course meal, entertainment, drinks, dancing and all round good times, the funds raised from the event will help batyr continue to run preventative education programs all across Australia. These invaluable programs help smash the stigma surrounding mental health and empower young Australians to reach out for help when they need it.

This is Sydney's time to shine. This event is a huge celebration, bringing the batyr community together to share in batyr's success and ongoing mission to smash the stigma!

DATE: SATURDAY 26 August 2017
TIME: 6:30pm - 11:30pm
Theme: Black tie (with a touch of jungle)
