Kai’s Big Gold Ball Announcement

After achieving huge success last year, the 2nd annual Kai’s Big GOLD Ball will be held on Saturday the 31st of August at the BelleVue Ball Room at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The ball was created in honour of Kai Nell, a brave little boy who lost his battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in January of 2017.

The first annual Kai’s Big Gold Ball raised over $35,000 for the Cancer Council WA. This year’s ball aims to make an even bigger impact and all funds raised will be going towards the important research into childhood cancer at CLCRF.

Kai’s family, or #teamkai, came up with the idea of the Big GOLD Ball as a way to make Kai’s short life make a difference. Kai’s journey was one that touched many hearts and unfortunately, Kai and his family are not alone with their experience. By using his memory to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research, #teamkai are bringing hope to children and families who are fighting the same battle they did.

Guests of Kai’s Big GOLD Ball will enjoy a delicious three-course meal, a five-hour drink package, live entertainment and a DJ. There will also be both a silent and live auction to add to the excitement of the night. The event will begin with pre-drinks at 6:30pm and will officially kick off at 7pm until midnight.

If last year’s event is anything to go by, this year’s ball is guaranteed to be an incredibly fun and meaningful night. We can’t think of a better excuse to get dressed up and go out with a group of friends!

Tickets for the ball are available here, with sponsorship packages also available.

Can’t make it to the ball but still want to support #teamkai? Donations to the cause can be made here. Please put #teamkai in the comments so we know why you’re donating.

Date:

Saturday, 31 August 2019 at 6:30PM

Location:

The BelleVue Ball Room, Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre

21 Mounts Bay Road, Perth WA 6000

Raising crucial funds in memory of three brave little boys

The Februhairy Fun Razor, formerly referred to as Decembeared, asks men to grow a beard throughout February and raise money to shave it off at the end of the month. This Februhairy, Jon Wannberg hopes to raise at least $300 through their small office and with the help of friends in neighbouring offices.

Fundraising efforts by Jon and the CLCRF research project 3 Boy Legacy (3BL) have helped obtain equipment and consumables for ongoing research, which has greatly helped their team at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research.

3BL are always welcoming new fundraising ideas to further support CLCRF, having also held art expos and fun runs in the past. “I’m always looking for an opportunity to raise funds for children’s cancer research…” says Jon, “…whether it’s through marathon running in England or Sweden or growing a beard in Australia.”

In 1996, three young boys, Matthew Webb, Justin Ward and Ricky Wannberg, tragically lost their lives to brain cancer. To honour their courageous battles, the families established the 3 Boys Legacy (3BL), a brain cancer research project administered by the CLCRF. 3BL aims to raise awareness and funds for children’s brain cancer research, “led by Research Fellow Dr Peter Dallas.

“There have been steady advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of medulloblastoma, which is the most common type of childhood malignant brain tumour.” Said Dr Peter Dallas.

“Overall, there is currently unprecedented optimism in the childhood cancer field that new, patient specific, and more effective treatments for medulloblastoma will become a reality within the next 10 years.”

February isn’t over yet, which means it’s not too late to join in on the Februhairy fun! If you or someone you know has been growing a beard, why not raise some money in support of 3BL and take part in the shave?

More information about 3BL can be found on their website and donations to CLCRF can be made here – please put Febuhairy in the comments so that we know the donation relates to John. Thank you.

Smocked Dresses hobby raises funds for CLCRF

There’s nothing quite like a rewarding, fun and enjoyable hobby that takes your mind off the stresses of day-to-day life.

Whilst the majority of us may join the local sports team or take part in volunteering projects, CLCRF supporter Anne Chua’s hobby stems from her passion of smocking and sewing dresses for toddlers and young girls. Anne has utilised her hobby to not only keep herself and her little customers happy but also as a way to generously help raise money for the foundation.

All proceeds raised from Anne’s beautiful smock dresses go directly towards CLCRF’s groundbreaking research to combat childhood cancers.

For those who may not be aware, smocking is an embroidery technique used to gather fabric so that it can stretch. Smoked dresses are popular among young girls and are high quality, timeless and can be used for formal or casual occasions.

Anne has so far raised over $700 and says she will continue to donate the proceeds of her smock dress hobby to CLCRF.

CLCRF would like to thank Anne for her generous donation and her ongoing efforts to raise funds for the foundation.

Toolmart supports CLCRF with donations from selected products

Our generous friends at Toolmart have come up with a unique way to raise funds for CLCRF. Part proceeds from the sale of charity marked products in their catalogue help fund vital research into childhood cancers.

Toolmart’s Loyalty Program includes a number of products in their monthly catalogue that have a HERO gold coin attached to them. Anyone who purchases one of these marked products will automatically have a portion of their sale sent to the donation kitty. 50% of donations are sent right here to CLCRF.

We are extremely thrilled to be able to work with the whole team from Toolmart to develop and promote this program to our members and supporters as well as the general public.

“We are WA owned and operated – and we are supporting WA charities. I hope you all get behind this as it is a great way for Toolmart to further support the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation,” said Ian Peterson, Sales and Marketing Manager of Toolmart Australia.

We, along with Toolmart, hope to see everyone get behind this initiative and look to buying tools that will help fund child cancer research.

Head to Toolmart to check out this Summer’s catalogue.

CLCRF presented with donation from NIBA Gala Lunch

Back in July, our CEO Andrea Alexander attended the 2018 National Insurance Brokers Association Gala Lunch, held at the Crown Resort. There was a fantastic turn out from those in the insurance industry – with record numbers attending.

Funds were again raised for CLCRF and Cystic Fibrosis WA via auctions during the event.  The Foundation recently received a donation for $3,485, which was half of the funds raised.

NIBA is the peak body of the insurance broking profession in Australia and represents an estimated 90% of all insurance brokers in Australia.

CLCRF would like to thank Dallas Booth, the CEO of NIBA, the Chairman of NIBA WA, Ross Bethell, and to all the WA members for their continued support of the Foundation.

John's Story

John’s Journey around Australia raises more than $16,000 for child cancer research

At the start of June, John Buchanan left his Bedfordale home on an anticlockwise journey around Australia on his vintage Yamaha X5650 motorbike. 6 weeks later, he finished his gigantic lap of Australia, raising a total of $16,242 for CLCRF.

John achieved this by stopping by at Woolworths stores at each location on his itinerary, rattling the tin, collecting donations and raising awareness of CLCRF. After close family friends lost their grandson to leukaemia late last year, John decided to take action and help raise money for the research into childhood cancers.

As well as the loose change donated by passers-by, many stories were shared of the families affected by leukaemia. Donors took great comfort to know that large strides were being made into finding a cure. John’s support crew consisted of his wife and son who followed John closely in their Toyota Landcruiser with a camper on the back.

Mr Buchanan would also like to thank all the local businesses, family and friends who donated and supported him in his trip through their Everyday Hero page.

Andrea Alexander, CEO of CLCRF said she’s thrilled with the support that John and his family received around Australia.

“We are very grateful for John for this wonderful contribution and would like to also thank all the people who supported him along his journey.”

Nambung Country Music Muster raises money for CLCRF

In October 2018, the Nambung Country Music Muster was held at Nambung Station. The music festival saw 1,200 country music fans enjoying 4 days of entertainment around the historic Nambung Station shearing shed, 200 kilometres north of Perth.

Headlining the festival were the talented Pete Denahy, Sharon Heaslip, Dianne Lindsay and Peter Simpson. The festival celebrated all things country, with guests also enjoying old-time dancing, food trucks and the popular Bush Poets Breakfast.

The Nambung Country Music Muster supports local groups and a large proportion of the proceeds go to several different charities. The festival was able to raise $2000 for CLCRF which will go towards the vital research into childhood cancer.

CLCRF thanks the Nambung Country Music Muster for their kind donation and we wish them continued success for this year’s festival.
