Fundraising Activities

The Perks Foundation holds a number of events across the year to fundraise for the charities we support.

Our current aim is to continue to fundraiser through a variety of smaller events throughout each year, with a major challenge/fundraiser every 2-3 years.

Royal Adelaide Golf Day – Friday, 6 October 2017

The Perks Foundation will be hosting their first golf day fundraiser at the picturesque Royal Adelaide Golf Club.

It is shaping to be an exciting day, with an expected 100 golfers to tee up during the day for a round while enjoying food/drinks and raising money for a worthwhile cause.

If you would like to be involved in the golfing day whether as a player or a volunteer, please get in contact with the Perks Foundation.

First run in 1970, the NYC Marathon has become the world’s biggest and most popular marathon with over 50,000 finishers in 2014. Entrants from around the globe make their way through all five Boroughs of New York, starting on Staten Island and finishing in Central Park.

To join the Perks Foundation for this event of a lifetime, runners agreed to raise $3,000 each as well as cover all costs associated with the event (flights, accommodation, race entry, etc).

Runners included 9 Perks team members, and we are proud to congratulate them all on completing the marathon.
