2019 Fundraising Lunch

Each year Hands Across Canberra gathers together a number of incredibly generous community, business and government partners for our annual fundraising luncheon. 

This year our luncheon will be held on Friday 18 October 2019 in Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia from 12 to 2 30pm.

We offer our business and government partners the chance to purchase a table which includes two seats offered to local charity representatives. This is to allow you to establish new connections and develop ways to support the great work our charities are doing in the community. 

This unique level of engagement between business and charity characterises our events and enables us to achieve better outcomes for Canberrans.  This arrangement has also seen an incredible level of increased understanding of need in Canberra and a direct increase in giving due to charities and business people actually meeting in an environment which encourages philanthropy.

Hands Across Canberra will be using the event to celebrate a very big year. We will be showcasing the result of our first grants under the Chief Minister’s Charitable Fund and a whole series of other positive developments. We will also be hearing the compelling stories of those who have directly benefited from the support of Hands Across Canberra and the generosity of the community at large.

The Hands Across Canberra lunch is a celebration of local philanthropy and it is supported by a number of local institutions, not least of which being the National Gallery.  

Hands Across Canberra has had quite a remarkable year already and we hope you will join us to hear how, with your generous support, we have helped so many causes locally. 

The investment in a table for eight of you and your guests, which includes a delightful meal from The Big Group at The National Gallery and alcoholic beverages is $3,000. 

Hands Across Canberra hope to see you and your wonderful team at our lunch on the 18thof October.

Table numbers are capped and filling fast. 

Don’t miss your opportunity to claim your place amongst Canberra’s most generous organisations.
