Melbourne Cup Fundraiser 2017

| $195 - $1900

Event Navigation


Following on from the $200,924.50 raised in 2016 – which assisted The Kids’ Cancer Project to pioneer the ‘Re-engage’ program equipping young survivors with the skills to cope with health challenges that follow cancer treatment – we are focusing our 2017 fundraiser on raising funds in support of the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.

Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is the leading organisation for brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness in Australia with a time critical mission to increase five-year survival from the current 20% to 50% by 2023. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation  has a strong patient focus and with innovative funding research, they are bringing world-class clinical trials to Australia to give children and adults with brain cancer access to new treatments faster.

We hope to harness the support of business friends and allied subcontractors to allow Cure Brain Cancer Foundation to continue their research and mission towards an increased survival rate and cure. We would truly appreciate your support with this worthwhile fundraising event. Please see details to the right in relation to sponsorship and support packages available, as well as ticket information. As always, every single dollar raised goes to the cause and is fully audited.
