Bucky’s Budweiser Big Birthday Bash & ALOHA!
January 12 @ 2:00 pm - 10:30 pm
The annual ‘Bucky’s Budweiser Big Birthday Bash’, combined with the Hawaiian Shirt Charity fundraiser is on Saturday, 12th January at the Australian Austrian Club in Mawson, starting at 2pm & continuing on into late evening.
All money raised on the day goes towards Rise Above Capital Region Cancer Relief, our local long-running, worthwhile cause. The Cancer Support Group began as ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group in 1985 when Yvonne Cuschieri started raising funds to enable 13 local teenagers with cancer to attend a CanTeen national camp. It wasn’t long before social workers started asking for her help for other families who were facing crisis situations. In March 1986, Yvonne asked friends for their help and the first meeting was held in her dining room. Over the years, the number of requests for help has been enormous, to support children and adults with cancer to help ease some of the financial burden placed on these patients and their families during a very difficult time.
Rise Above financially assists cancer patients in the ACT and Queanbeyan area. The group is able to provide assistance to patients with all types of cancer, across all ages. In 2017, their youngest patient is just 12 months old, and they are currently assisting over 900 patients, spending over $600,000 per year financially helping them while they are going through their treatment for cancer.
