On 28 February 2015, Tara Costigan, a mother of three and a BaptistCare employee, was brutally murdered by her ex-partner. Her violent death from domestic violence sent shock waves through her family, friends, her local community and BaptistCare’s workforce.
In response to her tragic death, calls for change became the inspiration for BaptistCare HopeStreet’s first ever Halo Ball.
Every year the Halo Ball raises vital funds to support BaptistCare HopeStreet’s essential support services for women and children, as we seek to end the cycle of abuse and build safer families.
Through the generosity of our supporters and guests, we have raised nearly half a million dollars, and these vital funds have gone directly to our frontline services.
