Fun Ways to Raise Funds!

Fundraising is never easy – but it can be great fun for all involved! Since 2005, the annual True Colours Melbourne Cup Long Lunch has been a lively reflection of outstanding community generosity, from sponsors and participants alike. And, among the many events held on behalf of True Colours, there have been monster garage sales, quiz nights, art exhibitions, outdoor challenges, fashion shows and the Finn Brothers in concert – all designed to help enhance the quality of life for  children with serious illness and their families.
