UPCOMING EVENTS AND FUNDRAISERS
The Whitelion calendar of events plays an important role in raising much needed funds that directly benefit the young people at risk we work with. From our national fundraising event, the award-winning Whitelion Bail Out, to the AFL Finals Series Luncheon - there's an event to appeal to all audiences.
The Bail Out is Whitelion’s national fundraising and awareness campaign. Bail Out provides a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of a young person that has been disconnected from our community due to abuse and neglect, drug addiction and poverty.
Eureka Climb is Australia’s biggest vertical race held at one of the world’s tallest residential buildings, Eureka Tower in Southbank, Melbourne. With our event motto being ‘Every step you take changes lives, the day raises much needed funds for both Whitelion and our event partner Interplast.
The annual AFL Series Luncheon celebrates the year that was for all supporters whilst providing a different atmosphere for corporates to connect and get involved with the Whitelion group.
The aim is to reach the summit of Mt Bogong, Mt Kosciuszko & Mt Tennent in just 33 hours over 2 days. The climb offers the opportunity for person fulfilment through a physical and mental challenge, all the while raising vital funds.
AFL Finals Series Luncheon
Whitelion will be hosting the 17th Annual AFL Finals Series Luncheon to be held on Thursday 7th September at the MCC Members Dining Room.
The annual AFL Series Luncheon celebrates the year that was for all supporters whose teams don't make the final eight and for those who are sitting pretty in September. It's the perfect occasion to sum up your chances of grand final glory as our star studded panel debate the prospects of clubs in the top eight.
Take in the atmosphere of the MCG as you enjoy a delicious two-course meal and beverages, live entertainment plus a live and silent auction.
Around 400 Corporates attended 2016's Luncheon hosted by Michael Roberts with expert panellists Danny Frawley, Meg Hutchins, Neil Roberts and Kevin Sheedy.
In the past years the event has been hosted by Fox Sports expert and former North Melbourne midfielder David King. Other past participants have included Dippa, Glenn Manton, Terry Wallace, Simon Madden, Shane Wakelin, Matthew Lloyd, Luke Ball, Alisa Camplin, Andrew Gaze and Glenn Manton with comedians Lehmo, Dave O'Neil, Marty Fields and Des Dowling. Whitelion appreciates the support of these individuals with this event to really make a difference to the young people in need.
