Signature Events

Little Heroes Foundation is always exploring new and innovative ways to not only raise much needed funds for our projects, but also to provide an experience for our supporters.

In recent years, we have hosted or been beneficiary of a number of events, including:


SLOWDOWN

Our Slowdown footy match has been a popular tradition for many SA families since 2000.

Featuring ex-crows and port players, local celebrities and more, our Slowdown showcases the fun side of footy. However, it’s more than just a game of football, and is also a fun day out for our Little Heroes and their families.

Traditionally, the game has been held on the public holiday Monday after the AFL Grand Final, however recent years have seen our game held on Father’s Day during the bye weekend of the AFL Season.

As this event continues to evolve, we thank the general public and our corporate sponsors for their continued support of this major fundraiser for us.



MOTHER'S DAY LUNCHEON

Each year, we host a special Mother’s Day Luncheon to celebrate the nation’s biggest heroes – our mums!

Hosted at the National Wine Centre, this day features gorgeous fashion, entertaining guest speakers and plenty of opportunities to spoil our mums (or yourself!) with our silent and major auctions.

This event continues to grow and is usually held on the Friday before Mother’s Day. Tickets usually go on sale for this event in January/February, however feel free to contact our office so that we can add you to our event wait list.


MELBOURNE CUP LUNCHEON

Our famous Melbourne Cup Luncheon is a major highlight in our events calendar, and has sold out for the past 3 years running.

Hosted at the National Wine Centre on Melbourne Cup Day (the first Tuesday of November) our guests enjoy a gorgeous fashion parade, live race coverage, major auction, on site bookie, plus our own fashions on the field competition. And don't forget the delicious 3 course lunch with plenty of other goodies, including a wine wall, lolly bar and more!

This event is one of our biggest fundraising lunches and is always a fun day out! Contact our office to be included on a special wait list to be notified when tickets go on sale in July.
