McGrath Foundation Events

Sydney Domain
Pink Test

Australia vs New Zealand
Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground
Every year the SCG turns into a sea of pink thanks to the support of of the crowd who come to watch some of the world’s greatest cricket in action.  The unforgettable atmosphere is something to be experienced and Australia vs New Zealand in 2020 will be no different!

Traditionally Ladies’ Day is day 3 of the Sydney Pink Test, and it has been renamed Jane McGrath Day in honour of Jane, but you can wear your pink any day of the Test to be part of the fun!

"People are not there just to watch the cricket; it’s the reason that we’re all there but I think there’s a feeling, particularly on the third day, that you’re there for a greater cause.” James Sutherland CEO Cricket Australia (2018).

Jane McGrath
High Tea

The very special Jane McGrath High Tea will be returning in 2019 to honour Jane. There will be events around Australia throughout the year, watch this space for more information!

Host your own event

It can be big. It can be small. Just so long as it’s pink! Whether you choose to host a BBQ, bake sale, auction or raffle; a sporting event, or a high tea – the possibilities are endless!

Add a touch of pink to your brunch, lunch, afternoon soirée or dinner service – all whilst raising funds to help the McGrath Foundation place specialist breast care nurses across Australia for free. With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 85, there are a lot of people interested in supporting a venue that is supporting a cause so close to their hearts.

…and we’re here to help.

Create memorable moments for your guests

Your patrons already love your venue, they will love it even more knowing their support will go towards helping families experiencing breast cancer.
Here are some simple ideas to pink up and create a memorable experience for your guests:

Pink up your venue with pink decorations – from flowers, napkins, balloons, anything goes as long as it is pink.

Pink up your staff, guests love to see your team having a good time. Ask staff to put on their pinkest outfit and have fun with it.

Pink up menu items – we’ve seen venues pink up hamburger buns, dessert items, create special drinks with a pink twist, and even pink up an entire menu!
