An invitation from us to you... to be awesome.
This community kick butt at support. Brews, Bites and Beats is an annual 18+ festival to support kids with cancer. We are partnered with Bravery Box who help oncology kids celebrate bravery and Kids Cancer Project who fund research to make sure no kid ever has to be cancer brave again.
We would LOVE to see you at this year's event.
What's going on this year?
More Brews: Newstead Brewing Co have come aboard as a sponsor! These guys have EVERY flavour of brew and cider you could ask for. We're SO excited to have them!
More Bites: think Eat Street but in Ferny Grove - think Paella, wings, burgers, churros.
Awesome Beats: Last year's pub beats continue this year with the Ryan & Madi, Tartan Shamrocks and Caillin Malley. We're adding a touch of carnival with Rhythm of Fire's drum and fire dancers joining the fun.
Where? Ferny Grove State School Hall
When? Saturday September 15th at 7pm
List the following in order of what is important to you but you get THE LOT
First brew is on us (beer, wine, cider, frozen daiquiri)
First bite is on us (your first plate, seriously, who just gives someone a BITE of something?)
All the beats you could shake your money maker at.
Money for childhood cancer research so no kid ever has to be cancer brave EVER again.
I'd like to help, because I'm awesome, and fabulous and also kind of good looking!
If you're a person or a business who would like to put some effort or finances in the pot to get this gig rocking we rely on your generosity. We aim to have a zero financial footprint from our event - so every dollar collected goes to Kids Cancer Project we seek business and personal donations to make that happen.
Ways you can help
Business / Personal Sponsorship
It's no secret events like this don't grow from thin air so if you have some cash to spare (personally or as a business) to help us turn that cash into MASSIVE research dollars through this event we will not turn you away.
Glass sponsorship: similar to Oktoberfest wine glass or beer glass are available upon arrival to be reused throughout the event. Business cards of the sponsor will be put inside the glasses before distribution.
Does your business reward clients with events and gifts? Why not reward them with some tickets to Brews, Bites and Beats for them and their friends?
What does craft beer, wine tents, food stalls, festival music and childhood cancer have in common? - YOU!
Brews Bites and Beats is our MASSIVE annual festival fundraiser; think Beer Garden and Wine Tent meets Eat Street and then they all go to an awesome music festival together. If you wish childhood cancer would get cancer, join us and Kids Cancer Project to raise the roof and raise some coin for childhood cancer research.
Where: Ferny Grove
When: 15th September at 7pm
What do I get? Brew (your first drink is on us), Bites (your first bite is on us), Beats (all the music you can listen to)
What else do I get? Really good Karma - all of our dosh goes to Kids Cancer Project so no kid has to be cancer-braver ever again.
One of the bravest things I do is give our daughter treatments (chemo and his cohort) that are known causes of serious illness and disease to save her life from cancer.
What a day when a super clever science boffin shrieks ‘I’ve got it!’ and does a victory lap around the lab because they have found a cure that does no harm.
What's better than one bake sale raising some funds for childhood cancer research? A tsunami of baked goods being sold ACROSS the nation creating genuine impact on childhood cancer research.

Tell EVERYONE you've met about your awesome plans to change the world of kids with cancer one chocolate crackle at at time.

Fun question: Why wait until September? September is childhood cancer awareness month and we want to make the biggest impact EVER so our kids SEE the love that our communities have for them.

SUNDAY 11th March- Date change
Bravery Box is hosting the 2018 swimming carnival meet for Little Big Swim and All About Aquatics, Everton Park - (guest swimmers also welcome) at Everton Park State School pool.
Standing up on the dive block takes a whole lot of BRAVE and we want to celebrate our swimmer's hard work this season.
Carnival is the key word here.
Games, Sausage Sizzles, Bake Sales, Dive workshops, Underwater Photography,
Races for Aged 4 to Squad level, Our World Famous Pool Pony Race (for parents and coaches).
For the entertainment of all races between our coaches from AAA and LBSS and parents.
All proceeds from the day go towards the work of the BRAVERY BOX for kids with cancer. Our project collects donations from the public of toys, gifts and other items to reward and incentivise the bravery of the children and teens undergoing treatment for cancer at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. The carnival will also be a drop off point for donations if you are all the colours of awesome and would like to make a donation.
Event Details and RSVP form
Date: Sunday 11th March (please note date change)
Starting Time: 12 noon
Location: Everton Park School swimming pool (entrance on corner of Barton and Lyne Street)
Order of events:
12-1.30pm - Dive workshops and Underwater photography
1.30pm - Across the pool races
2pm - 25m races
3pm - 50m races
3.30pm - Coach Races and Parents Races, Adult Pool Pony Race
Cost: The cost of the event is a donation to the Bravery Box. A suggested donation is $5 per swimmer. The event will also be a drop off point for toys, games, books and other rewards for the Bravery Box to distribute to kids with cancer (please see below or the link above for the work we do). Please note: because so many of the children with cancer have compromised immunity we can only accept new donations, we ever so politely decline second hand.
A little something about the Bravery Box - Cancer treatment is often painful and confronting - when a child with cancer at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital braves up for a procedure they dip into the Bravery Box as a reward; rewards in the form of toys, games, iTunes vouchers and other 'well dones' donated by the public.
The Swimming Carnival will be a drop off point for donations and all proceeds from the carnival will be donated to The Bravery Box. You could make a donation yourself or be all the colours of awesome and get your friends and family to contribute as well bringing a stash of rewards for kids going toe to toe with painful procedures.
Great donations are toys, unique water bottles, young adult fiction, books, colouring in books, craft sets, lego, play doh, iTunes vouchers (our teens LOVE these), anything smiggle or spencil, nail polish, lip gloss. Think of what your child would like to be distracted during a long wait or a painful procedure and you'll be bang on.
