FUNdraising towards a Cancer Free Future

Event Nation is once again taking part in the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea FUNdraiser. Thursday 28th May 2015 is the official morning tea day, though hosts are encouraged to hold an event any time in May or June.

Therefore Event Nation is inviting Mid West residents to get swept up in the fun of its highly popular Leah Mainwaring Let’s Kick Cancer Brunch FUNdraiser on Sunday June 21 from 9.30am to 12.00pm

Buoyed by the sold-out success of last year’s inaugural event, which raised $4671.18 for cancer research, prevention and support services, while also honouring a beautiful friend and tireless Cancer fundraiser Leah Mainwaring, organisers expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better.

Last year’s Mad Hatter theme ensured an entertaining atmosphere and outrageous attire, and this year’s colourful theme of ‘Fluro (for the tradies’) and Flowers (for the ladies’) promises similar hilarity.

Event Nation director Jodi Reilly said this year’s brunch would include games, prizes, live entertainment, fabulous auction items including a Red FM radio advertising package and accommodation and tickets for four to the West Coast Eagles V Adelaide Crows July 11 home game and several inspirational talks from our special guests including Cancer Council Director - Melissa Price MP and cancer survivors local business owner Wendy Mann and Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service CEO Deborah Woods.

She said for those with children, they needn’t miss out as there would also be a ‘Kidz Zone’ supervised by a qualified child care giver for those aged under 12.

“On the day there will be ‘hand pampers’ by donation and fresh flowers in our ‘Pop Up Florist’ so you can purchase your gorgeous fresh weekly blooms for any amount above the reserve price, all to help raise money for cancer,” Ms Reilly said.

“This year will also see the introduction of our ‘chain of hearts’ in which we’ll invite guests to make a donation and write a special message on their chosen cardboard heart.

“These hearts will be linked together to form the start of out official ‘chain of hearts’ bunting for our 2016 fundraiser.

“Each year guests will be invited to make additions to the bunting.”

Tickets are $50 per person and include a complimentary champagne on arrival, a tapasstyle brunch or continental selection, self-service tea, coffee and juice, live entertainment and the chance to win one of many prizes all whilst having a ball FUNdraising for a good cause.

Tickets for children aged under 12 are just $5 a child, which includes hangout in the 'Kidz Zone', movie, toast and spreads, fruit, fruit juice and water. Children are welcome to bring their own games, iPad etc.

This year Cancer Council aims to recruit 35,000 generous morning tea hosts nationally to support Cancer Council’s life-saving work into prevention programs, world class research and support services (like Cancer Council 13 11 20) for all people affected by cancer.
