Brainstorm Events

From time to time our community amazes us with the support and funds they generate through community and corporate events.

Since the first event in April 2014, over $100,000 has been donated through events run by our supporters in their communities.

If you have been thinking about running a fundraising event, before you start, it is important to remember that we, RPA Hospital, are legally required to approve and authorise all fundraising activities. Find out more
