Australian Lions Biggest BBQ
is an annual fundraising event undertaken by many of the 1,200 Clubs across the country. Again this year the BBQ can take place at any time during the year, when it best suits your Club. Funds raised will be used to help achieve ALCCRF’s mission to prevent kids with cancer dying by raising funds nationally and donating these funds to the best scientific and clinical childhood cancer research conducted right across Australia.
“It never ceases to amaze me what Aussies can do when they work together” said Peter Lamb, Trustee of ALCCRF. Who would have thought the good old Aussie Barbie could have been used to help Lions raise over $10 million for childhood cancer research. Well that’s what we have done but the job’s not over. More than 800 Australian kids are diagnosed every year with various forms of childhood cancer and unfortunately we are still seeing around three kids dying every week.
More than 450 Lions Australia clubs will hold barbecues during the year to raise funds for medical research into the causes and prevention of, and to find a cure for, childhood cancer. Why Lions have been passionately supporting childhood cancer research since 1996 is very simple. “We believe every child deserves the chance at a healthy life” said Peter Lamb.
This annual event gives Clubs across the country the opportunity to support their own Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation’s vision of 100% Survival for kids with cancer because Lions believe that every child deserves a chance at a healthy life”.
The Lions Biggest BBQ is a great way to promote Lions Australia and to raise awareness in your community
Thank you and good luck for Lions Biggest BBQ activities.
