Volunteer at the 2019 Perth Special Children's Christmas Party
SETUP: Friday 22nd November - NOW FULL
PARTY: Saturday 23rd November

The aim of the Special Children’s Christmas Party is to provide in excess of 3,000 children from all over the region with a day they will never forget.

The children come from four major groups: Children who may be seriously ill, intellectually or physically impaired and also the underprivileged. The Party is not open to the public but to all Sponsors and the children and their families. We are expecting approximately 6,000 – 7,000 people.

We put on a free day including lunch, drinks, fruit, lollies, ice creams and chips and a three hour live stage show. Other entertainment for the children includes face painting, rides, interactive displays and much more.

Of course no Christmas party is complete without Santa Claus! Each child will receive at least two or three high quality presents.

This is the 23rd anniversary of the Party and working with our friends at Hit92.9 with proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish® Australia, so we want to make it one of the best day's ever for these brave children.

This year's Party will be held at the the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre on Saturday 23rd November.
