Fundraising Events


We host our own fundraising events but also partner with other organisations that share our goal of bringing joy and opportunities to children living with disability or illness. 

If you’re organising an event and would like to direct the proceeds to KidsWish, we’d love to hear from you. Our team can provide support with marketing, fundraising and volunteers.

Wollongong Wolves
Charity Match

KidsWish have partnered with Wollongong Wolves, Illawarra’s top football club who competes in the NSW National Premier Leagues Competition. 

Sunday 23 July, 2023 saw the first KidsWish Christy Match take place when Wollongong Wolves played Sydney FC at WIN Stadium as part of the NPL competition schedule. It was a fantastic event attended by over 1000 fans in support of The Wolves and KidsWish!
