One of the fun ways you can support the RCH is by attending a fundraising event.
From charity film screenings to gala balls, you’ll find a great range of events happening throughout the year. Keep your eye on this page for new additions.
Cox Plate Carnival
Friday 26 and Saturday 27 October
Moonee Valley Racing Club will be supporting the RCH with their annual charity pin promotion. Proceeds from every purchase of the Cox Plate Pin will be donated to the hospital.
Boating for Brains
Saturday 3 – Tuesday 6 November
Boating for Brains is helping raise funds for the RCH Neurology department, one stroke at a time. A group of parents whose children have received life-changing treatment from the RCH Neurology team and friends are attempting to set a new Guinness World Record by paddling a dragon boat 600 kilometres. After months of training and preparation, the crew will hit the water for four days along the Murray River, with the hope of raising over $200,000 to support the hospital’s neuroimaging service.
CIKA’s Wood Days
Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November
Heavy horse led log snigging, shingle splitting and damper eating might all sound like scenes from a vintage movie, but thanks to CIKA, these traditional skills are brought to life with the annual Old Time Wood Days. Head west for a weekend of traditional woodworking, horse snigging and log slabbing, complemented with local produce and a feast from the camp ovens.
Finnan’s Gift Op Shop Ball
Saturday 17 November
The Op Shop Ball supporting Finnan’s Gift is a night full of fun whilst raising heaps of money for a great cause! This year is Disco Fever Time, so anything 70’s will do! Tickets on sale now, it will be a sell out.
1 – 24 December
Support the RCH when you visit this elaborate gingerbread replicate of Melbourne, including famous landmarks like the MCG and Luna Park! The Gingerbread Village exhibit will run throughout the month of December at Federation Square. More information will be available soon.
