Event Example: Convicts for a Cause



Convicts for a Cause is a fun way to help charities raise funds for their important work that has the potential to change the lives of many people and the future.

Last year we were chosen to partner with Cystic Fibrosis WA, the Rotary Club of Mt Lawley and the Rotary Club of Perth and we are very proud to say we have been chosen again. How fantastic.

Convicts For a Cause is always a themed event, and 2015 was no exception! The theme was Convict-Con – Think ComicCon, but instead of celebrating superheroes and sci-fi stars, we gathered to pay tribute to the biggest and the baddest characters ever to have been put behind bars! Our guests came dressed as their favourite crim – Dead or alive, real or fictional, the possibilities were endless!

In 2015 we saw the debut of our Junior Ambassador Ajay McCarthy. Ajay developed type 1 diabetes when he was 9 and says he wishes he could be free from diabetes. We know how hard it is to live with diabetes so our aim is to find the cures and solutions for all types of diabetes including type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. 

Ajay is pictured below with the Cystic Fibrosis Junior Ambassador,
