Now in its ninth year, LIGHT THE NIGHT has become a highlight on the Sydney entertainment calendar, raising over $350,000 for funding leukaemia research. This year, money raised will fund the LIGHT THE NIGHT Research Grant that supports a promising new Gene Control in Acute Leukaemia project being undertaken by St Vincent's Hospital's Haematology Research Team.
LIGHT THE NIGHT is inspired by Matthew Rennie, a brave young man who fought a three year battle against leukaemia. Unfortunately, Matthew passed away shortly before the 2007 concert. LIGHT THE NIGHT was created by Matthew's two brothers, musical theatre performers Shaun Rennie and Adam Rennie, and friends Monica Smith and Greg Smith.
