With an average of 10 new charities being registered every day in Australia*, it is more important than ever to step away from the standard 'run of mill' Gala night and do something a little different. By thinking outside the box, The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation and Burger King were able to create unique and memorable fundraising events for their guests whilst still receiving outstanding financial results.
On October 21, The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation and Harper's BAZAAR joined together to form 'BAZAAR in Bloom', an evening of fabulous fashion, food and wine. Showcasing a number of talented Australian designers, Sydney's newest and most magnificent fashion show went off with a bang inspiring guests to give and dig deep.
Also a great success, Burger King's Fight for Life, held December 5, saw a line-up of sporting legends, stars and celebrity guests fighting to raise money for Hospice Waikato. The boxing extravaganza featured New Zealand Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker, New Zealand Netball Icon Irene Van Dyk, reality TV star Art Green from 'The Bachelor', and World Cup winning All Black Zac Guildford. Not only was the night one to remember but the live event exceeded its target by 25%.
