After the fantastic Camp Quality fundraiser by the Burrito Bar on 13 July, you might be inspired to do a little fundraising of your own. During the month of August, you can participate in 'Dine at Mine', a fundraising campaign for the children's cancer charity Camp Quality. Camp Quality aims to improve the quality of life for children living with cancer and support their families, using fun as a weapon against cancer.


'Dine at Mine' is an easy way to raise funds. After all, we all need to eat. Invite your friends and family for a themed dinner, a high tea, or a casual backyard BBQ and ask them to donate to Camp Quality what they would normally pay for a night out. It's that simple.

The official month for this fundraiser is August, but you can host your dinner party any time you like. If you host your party by 30 September 2013, you and your guests also have the opportunity to enter the Host or Guest Competition. The top individual fundraiser even has the chance of winning a year's supply of Tim Tams.

If you are organising a sit-down dinner, a themed party might be the way to go.

Make your own
Buy pizza bases, tacos, burritos or rice paper rolls and let your guests create their own with ingredients already prepared by you.

Once you have registered as a host, you will be able to create your own online fundraising page where you can collect donations and send out invitations. You will also receive a host kit with invitations, donation forms and a magazine with ideas for your party.
