When we band together to bring women’s cancers down, we can make a huge difference.
With all the uncertainty we’re facing right now, there has never been a more important time to stay connected with the girls in your life.
As the COVID-19 vaccination rollout continues, we are hopeful that our Girls’ Night In fundraisers will be able to host in-person events in late spring. But while Stay at Home Directions remain in place across Victoria, there are plenty of fun virtual event ideas you could organise to keep your girlfriends connected – like an online yoga session or trivia night!
You can pick any date that suits you. Girls' Night In has traditionally run throughout October, but now you can choose any date in spring: September, October or November.
It’s important to make sure your Girls’ Night In follows any COVIDSafe measures in place at the time of your event. Remember to check in on the State Government’s most recent daily update at DHHS website before hosting your girls’ night.
Here’s a few event ideas for a fun night with the girls. You can pick from the list below, or feel free to get creative with an idea of your own.
A night of virtual Trivia will keep your guests entertained all night – you could even make it female-themed if you’d like.
Fancy dress party
This easy idea only requires you to decide on a theme and find a costume! Ask your guests to dress as their favourite female from history, or another theme that your friends might like. You could organise a virtual fancy dress party – it’s a great reason to get dressed up during lockdown!
Choose an all-time classic, share a video link to your friends, and enjoy the show! You could charge the cost of a cinema ticket with every contribution going towards your fundraising. Some hosts have even used a projector to host a Girls’ Night In movie night in their backyard. For a virtual movie night, there are plenty of ways to stream a movie together online – check out this helpful article.
Art and craft night
Use your crafts skills to support Girls’ Night In! Previous hosts have set up a canvas for each guest with a set of paint and brushes or find some tutorials online and create origami to keep it mess-free. The options are endless with this idea!
Whether you’re a yoga teacher or simply an accomplished yogi, why not host a yoga class? Consider hosting a yoga livestream class online, clear out a space in your home and send a link to your family and friends so they can join in virtually.
Dine with your friends virtually by ordering in the same cuisine as them and organising a skype call! While we can’t go out and enjoy a meal with friends right now, we can still support our favourite local restaurants while catching up with friends.
*Closer to your event date, please ensure your fundraiser is in line with the most up-to-date COVID-19 guidelines. You can see the most recent updates here: dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorias-restriction-levels-covid-19
