Event with purpose
A purpose-driven organisation, our vision is for all children and young people to thrive in resilient, strong and safe families and communities.
Kids First is proud to host events that promote our life-changing work and services, fundraise to support our efforts, and offer educational and professional development opportunities for the community.
3AW Lunchtime Rumours Feast
Since 2006, the 3AW Lunchtime Rumours Feast has transformed the lives of vulnerable children across Melbourne. Through the heartfelt generosity of 3AW, our sponsors and attendees, more than $2 million has been raised for Kids First’s programs that nurture, support and strengthen the futures of vulnerable children, young people and families.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and attendees, in 2023 we raised more than $240,000 to support critical work for children, young people and families across Australia.
Kieser Charity Golf Day
For the 9th year in a row Kieser Australia selected Kids First as their Golf Day Fundraiser charity-of-choice, and what a day it was: we raised a record-breaking $60,460!
Thursday 9th March saw the Latrobe Golf Course in Alphington welcome guests to the 9th Annual Kieser Charity Golf Day for Kids First.
The event was well attended, with 124 players enjoying a friendly day on the green. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, players' fee contributions, raffles and auctions, we set a new record for this annual fundraising event.
At the lunch to conclude the day, a contemplative silence descended as Acting CEO Nicole Artico shared compelling stories from Hub 3756, and the life-changing impact this much-needed resource is having in the community. Learn more about our Early Help Hubs these funds will go far to support.
