Great things to come at Ardoch

When: 8 Aug 2022

We’re excited to announce that Ardoch is seeing out 2022 with three great fundraising events – Ardoch’s Great Race, adidas Ardoch Golf Day Sydney, and Ardoch’s Great Auction. After years of disruptions and eleventh-hour cancellations due to lockdowns, we can’t wait to create some fun and excitement, raise much-needed funds, and generate a buzz around our programs and helping the communities we work with.

With over 90 per cent of Ardoch’s revenue coming from fundraising, these events are crucial to the successful delivery of our impactful programs in communities facing disadvantage. The good news is there’s something for everyone to get involved in!

Ardoch’s Great Race – 8 & 9 October 2022

Ardoch’s Great Race is back, better than ever, and for the first time will be running in both Melbourne (Saturday, 8 October) and Sydney (Sunday, 9 October).

This ‘Amazing Race’ style contest sees teams of four completing various challenges and solving clues to bring them to their ultimate destination. From iconic landmarks to cultural centres, teams will take on puzzles and games designed to entertain and challenge, as well as give insight into the obstacles many vulnerable children in Australia face and how Ardoch helps.

A fun day out for people of all ages and abilities, this is an unforgettable experience and wonderful opportunity to support the work of Ardoch in helping children and young people reach their potential.

Ardoch’s Great Race is perfect for anyone who:

  • Has ever watched The Amazing Race and thought, “that looks fun!”
  • Still gets a kick out of old-school classroom activities
  • Is looking for a unique day out with friends and family
  • Loves a good game night/day
  • Is inspired by the work of Ardoch and addressing education disadvantage

Get a team together and sign up today!

adidas Ardoch Golf Day Sydney – 31 October 2022

Following on from the success of adidas Ardoch Golf Day in Melbourne earlier this year, we’re taking the boutique golfing experience to Sydney’s Concord Golf Course. Keen golfers will enjoy a unique experience playing a round of golf with teammates in an idyllic setting on one of Australia’s top ranked golf courses.

An exclusive and memorable experience, adidas Ardoch Golf Day Sydney is a fantastic opportunity for networking with colleagues, business partners, and/or clients, or simply enjoying a round of golf with mates. There’ll also be an opportunity to bid on a celebrity to join your team on the day, as well as other items to complement your game.

Ardoch’s Great Auction – 15-25 November

With the festive season fast approaching (yes, it’s coming, like it or not!) we know it can be challenging balancing gift shopping alongside looming school fees for the next year. To top it off, this is also a time when charities make further pleas for donations to help people in need.

Rather than have to choose, we’ve provided a perfect solution – do good while getting goods!

Ardoch’s Great Auction is comprised of quality donated goods from generous businesses, partners and supporters – from small gift ideas to big ticket items. So, you can find a perfect gift while also knowing that you’re supporting Ardoch’s educational programs in communities facing disadvantage.

A comprehensive catalogue will be available soon and we know you’ll find plenty of things you’ll want to bid for! We’ve even got a five-day Jucy camper van voucher generously donated by our friends at Jucy, check out their website for a great 10 per cent off deal they’ve got on right now until the end of September.

If your business would like to donate items to the auction and have your products promoted to all our wonderful supporters and partners, please reach out to us at: fundraising@ardoch.org.au, we’d love to have you on board!
