Event ideas

Whether it’s a simple catch up with the girls at home or a larger event in your local community – you can have a huge impact.

Every dollar adds up! When we band together to support the women affected by cancer in our life, we can make a huge difference.

You can pick any date that suits you. Girls’ Night In runs throughout the entire month of October, but you can choose a different month if you’d like.

Here’s what other ladies around the country do to host 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.


Dinner party

If you have a signature dish, you could invite your friends around and cook up a storm, or alternatively arrange a pot-luck dinner and ask your friends to bring a plate.


Fancy dress party

This easy idea only requires you to decide on a theme and find a costume! Ask them to dress as their favourite female from history, or another theme that your friends might like.


Movie night

Choose an all time classic, invite your friends around for the cost of a movie ticket, and enjoy the show! Some hosts have even used a projector and had a movie night in their backyard.


Clothes swap/sale

Make a difference and be sustainable with this great idea. You could set up some trestle tables and turn your living room into a swap-meet – what a great way to update and declutter your wardrobe.


Art and craft night

The options are endless with this idea! 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.


Pamper party

Do you have a talent for doing your own manicures? Do you have some face masks at home you’d like to use? Get the girls around and pamper yourselves!


Yoga class

Whether you’re a yoga teacher or simply an accomplished yogi, why not host a yoga class? Clear out a space in your home or get your local yoga studio involved.


Games night

Set up a few games around the living room and invite the girls around for a games night! Think about how you can charge for their participation to boost your fundraising.


Trivia night

A night of Trivia will keep your guests entertained all night – you could even make it woman-themed if you’d like. Some hosts have arranged a girls’ night out and hosted their trivia in a larger venue.


Larger events

If you want to organise something bigger, we’d love to hear about it. We’re here to help – contact us on 1300 65 65 85 or girlsnightin@cancervic.org.au.
