Host a Girls' Night In to help free the future from cancer

Yes, I’ll host a Girls' Night In!

Free the future from women’s cancers

Cancer Council works across every type of cancer, and your fundraiser will help make a difference to the almost 70 women diagnosed with cancer each day. Click the links below to find out more about women's cancers.







Hosting a Girls’ Night In is easy

All you have to do is set a date, lock your girlfriends in for a catch up, and donate what you would’ve spent on a night out to Cancer Council.

Mother's Day with a difference.

Celebrate all the incredible women and mother figures in your life while making a difference. Host a simple brunch, make it fancy with a DIY spa day, or bring the family together for a movie night.

Host a Dinner Party

Invite a few friends over and serve them up a feast, in return for a donation. Or you could share the load and ask everyone to bring a plate of a certain cuisine.

Movie Night

Can’t remember the last time you watched a classic? Sell tickets to a simple lounge room screening with your friends or go all out and turn it into a themed dress up night with appropriate food and decorations too. Think Casablanca with Moroccan fare and lots of cushions…

Games or Trivia night

Set up different tables or areas with a number of card or board games, or for different trivia teams, and get ready for a night of friendly rivalry. Charge everyone an entry fee or a “buy-in” for each game. Local businesses could also be convinced to donate some prizes.

Clothes Swap

What better way to update your wardrobe, and raise money for a good cause? Ask everyone to donate quality clothes they no longer want and put some price tags on them. You’ll not only get your hands on your friend’s coveted coat but raise funds for women’s cancers too.

Meet Tenille

As a busy mum, she wanted a way to pause the busy-ness and have a beautiful time together with her besties.

She knew one cause united them: cancer. They had all been touched in some way by cancer, either themselves or someone they knew.

Tenille gathered some of her closest friends for a fun night in. They raised money for women’s cancers while having one of those unforgettable nights together.

“Life is so busy. Girls’ Night In is my way of getting my closest friends together to stop, connect, have a night ‘off’ and support a great cause.”

“It’s so much fun – and so easy! I simplified the fundraising by asking guests for a $30 entry fee, and then everything else just flowed! I can’t wait to do it again this year.”

Tenille and her friends raised more than $700 for women’s cancer research and support.

Every day in Australia, 70 women are diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer

Money raised from your Girls' Night In will help fund world-class research into women’s cancers, cancer prevention and advocacy programs, and support services to help those affected by women’s cancers.
