Play For Purpose

We believe ballet is for the whole community and alongside our performances, we deliver a dynamic program of workshops, dance classes and activities for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. In 2016, over 43,000 people participated in our community programs. 

Queensland Ballet has partnered with Play For Purpose charity lottery; a world-first fundraising concept that gives you the chance to win great prizes, while helping us share the gift of ballet with as many people as possible. Play For Purpose is conducted by the 50-50 Foundation, an innovative registered charity that operates art unions, raffles and charitable lotteries for Australian charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Tickets cost $25 each, with $15 from every ticket purchased at being donated directly to Queensland Ballet, to enable us to keep creating world-class performances and enriching lives through our community programs. 

Play For Purpose prizes include $500,000 in gold bullion (first prize), a $150,000 luxury car package (second prize), travel experiences and gift vouchers.
