The Friends of The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation is a committee established in 1992 to coordinate events that assist in raising funds to support the mission of The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation. All committee members have a passion for the neurosciences and the desire to make a real difference within this field. It is for this reason they give their time voluntarily. 

Each year The Friends organise a major fundraising event to raise money for the world leading neuroscience research programs at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. The Friends of The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation Annual Gala Ball and Auction is a prestigious event that brings together business leaders, State and Federal government ministers, sporting celebrities, members of the medical and legal fraternity and patients, past and present. It is always a very successful event, both in informing the general public about the work of the Neurosciences at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, and also in raising money to support research and clinical activities. 

Guest speakers have included Carrie Bickmore, Jeff Kennett, Susan Duncan, author and former editor of Women's Weekly, Rasheda Ali, daughter of boxer Muhammad Ali and The Hon. Peter Costello, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia.
