GET YOUR CREW TOGETHER

Help us raise funds, spread awareness

and have a damn good time doing so

START WINTER WITH A BANG

BEARD SEASON LAUNCH PARTIES

To celebrate the start of winter, we encourage our ambassadors to host a bit of a hootenanny with their crew. It doesn't have to be a huge one (although we have been known to take over pirate ships, paddle steamers and beach clubs). Just invite your mates to a bar, restaurant or go for a road trip. Whatever you want to do to mark the start of your Beard Season and celebrate how you're going to do it to save lives... we salute you!!

If you want a hand with sponsorship, event promotion or anything else, please get in touch!

GET YOUR GLAD GROW ON

BEARD SEASON BALLS

If you're extra keen. Feel free to have a ball!! We've had a few over the years and can highly recommend it. Pick a theme, a venue and muster together a passionate and hard working committee. We can help if you give us enough notice. Auctions are always fun and of course a hearty band to finish off strong. We may be able to organise some key speakers and celebrity MC's to keep the night afloat. It's a big commitment but could very well turn into the party of the year!!

KICK SOME GOALS FOR GOOD

BEARD SEASON FOOTY GAMES

We have a heap of footy clubs signing up every year, and a lot of them have been doing special Beard Season rounds to help us raise funds and awareness in our fight against melanoma. If you play footy - of any code - hit up your manager/coach/captain to have a charity match for us. If your team is signed up as ambassadors you can add the money you raise to your donation tally, giving you a better chance at winning one of our #BeardSeasonTrophies. We might even have a prize for the best footy team with beards. You'll look more fierce, stay warmer on the field ANNNNND your whole town/crowd/team will know you're doing it to champion early detection - something which could literally save lives. Which feels like you've won a grand final. Have at it...

GROWING GREATNESS ON THE GRASS

BEARD SEASON LAWN BOWLS

This is a great way for groups of mates to dress up, get a little competitive and raise some funds for your campaigns. Each team could have a buy in (let's say $40 each), with half covering play and the other half going to the winning team's fundraising tally. Giving them a bigger chance of winning one of our #BeardSeasonTrophies. However you want to roll it, the more people you ring in and the more money you raise the better. Have fun and bowl responsibly.

PUT THE SIZZLE IN YOUR SEASON

BEARD SEASON BBQ'S

Everyone loves a good old fashioned cook up. So why not source some of your finest tucker, invite the gang around and have a BBQ for Beard Season. Everyone who attends should have had (or pledge to have) a skin check. And if they bring the biggest donation they get to cook the steak (or the vegetarian equivalent). You could incorporate a meat/veggie tray raffle, some backyard challenges or whatever you can dream up to get people bidding, competing and raising funds for the cause. Would love to see what you come up with. Get creative. Turn up the heat and help us get the jump on this dastardly beast called melanoma.

ROCK YOUR SPOTS OFF

BEARD SEASON BAND NIGHTS

Everyone knows someone (or knows someone) who knows a band. Why not line them up with a gig at your local, invite as many people as you can, charge a little entry fee and celebrate how great the are. All while raising funds for the cause... You could do a little speech in between songs. Encourage everyone to get a skin check, and generally revel in the majesty of your beard. There's not much wrong with live music and saving lives... Ah 1. 2. 3. 4...
