Telethon Family Festival

The Telethon Family Festival was back again in 2022

We were thrilled to take part in the Telethon Family Festival again in 2022.

This year the event was held at the very central RAC Area on Sunday, 23 October 2022. Wellington Street and RAC Arena were transformed into a very colourful fiesta of fun including live entertainment, rides, activities and oh so any food-trucks!

Despite the unseasonably rainy weather, we had a steady stream of people visit our marquee for most of the day and made more than 600 Coco Loco balls. Volunteers were on hand to explain how we operate and how to get food assistance for those who need it.

The incredible news that Telethon raised more than $71 million in donations over the course of the weekend made the event all the more special to be a part of. Helping to achieve this phenomenal outcome for sick kids in WA was an incredible opportunity and experience.

Telethon have kindly shared a highlights video with us of the 26-hours of fun, fundraising and live entertainment.

Thank you to our amazing volunteers who manned our marquee.
