Need ideas?

Not keen to run, walk, swim, cycle, cook, celebrate or dress red?  Below are amazing ideas that can help you create a fabulous fundraise and Do it your way for Heart:

  • Comedy Night
  • Bingo day
  • Movie Night
  • Trivia Night
  • Casual Clothes Day
  • Golf Charity Day
  • Lawn Bowls/Barefoot Bowls Charity Event
  • Christmas/Valentine’s Day/New Year’s Eve party
  • Poker tournament
  • Girls Night In
  • Guys Night In
  • Love your sport? Why not hold a charity game or tournament? There are so many options: footy, cricket, table tennis, volleyball, basketball, netball, tennis, hockey, soccer, ten pin bowling – the possibilities are endless. To make your event really stand out, consider including a theme for the day.
  • Are you musical? Why not hold a concert or battle of the bands event?
  • Trying to quit something? If you are trying to quit cigarettes, alcohol, soft drinks, or something else, get friends and family to sponsor you if you can go without for a month.
  • Garage sale/car boot sale/Ebay or Gumtree auction: Get rid of all of your unused items and donate the proceeds (or a portion of them).
  • Silent auction. Can be done as part of an event or just on it’s own. Spread the word to get people bidding.
  • Treasure Hunt/Car Rally/Amazing Race. Make it fun, adventurous and competitive – people will love it.
  • Fetes and market stalls. If you are crafty, make items to be sold. Other options are plants, homemade jams or other food items.
  • Get everyone kicking up their heels at a Dance-a-thon.
  • Shopping Tours are a great fundraiser. Spend a day shopping with friends and raising money at the same time.
  • Karaoke Idol.
  • Sweepstakes. Whether it’s for the AFL/NRL Grand Final or the Melbourne Cup, invite people to dress up, enter sweeps (winner, last place, first goal/try etc). Charge an entry fee and donate all or a portion of the proceeds.
  • World Heart Day (In 2013, this occurs on 29th September). Choose one of your events to coincide with this day, to give it extra meaning.
  • Don’t forget about the families! Organise a Kids Day Out or Teddy Bear’s Picnic, with lots of activities and space to run around.
