Queensland Charity Events 2013

So I went looking for a list of what charity events are on in Queensland this year, more specifically the frock-up-for-your-favourite-cause type charity Balls and couldnt fine one. So I decided to write my own.

So dust off your penguin suit or fabulous frock, grab some friends, book your tickets and make a difference!  Read through the list to find out how you can win your very own  Personal Planner.

In chronological order…please leave me the details a comment below if I have missed any, and I will happily add it to the list!  I suspect this list will grow over the next couple of months, so please check back throughout the year…

    I have been searching just now for a charity events calendar for Brisbane and was disappointed to find there isn’t one and delighted to find that someone has taken the initiative to do this! I think there are lots of other fun ones that people can (could of) got involved with like the mater stair climb, Save the Children’s 36floors, the Ultimate Urban Abseil, Colour run, City to South, Bridge to Brisbane, Brissie to Bay etc etc etc! So many and not all listed in one easy peasy calendar!

    Well done charity spam and thanks, i’m now a subscriber!
