Large events

If your dream team of friends is prepared to become an organising committee, these ideas could interest you!


If you want to host a night that won’t be forgotten in a hurry, why not a black tie gala ball? You can invite a large number of people, and ask local businesses or people you know to donate a venue, catering, or goods for a silent auction.


Organise and host a night of music, with all the funds going towards women’s cancers. You could even arrange a speaker to tell your audience about the importance of Cancer Council’s work in research, prevention and support.


For any students interested in hosting a Girls’ Night In, why not have a sleepover at school and invite speakers to talk about Cancer Council’s work, or ask local musicians or a band to perform?


Hold an art exhibition, showcasing the talents of local artists, and either sell the art pieces during the exhibition or hold an auction of the works with some – or all – of the profits being donated. You could also ask artists to donate a portrait or photography session to be raffled off.

There are many opportunities to fundraise at big events, whether through ticket sales, raffles, silent auctions, or corporate donations or sponsorship.
