Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal

Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal

Sydney Airport’s annual Christmas Appeal unites the airport community and travelling public to raise funds for those in our community who need it most. Since 2012, we have raised more than $800,000 for charity.

In 2016, we are partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) to support families caring for seriously ill children who are away from home this Christmas. Funds raised will go towards upgrading facilities at the Randwick House near Sydney Airport, among other initiatives. 

The Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal is held every year in the six weeks leading up to Christmas and includes an exciting program of events, activations and entertainment.

On Saturday, 5 November 2016, the Sydney Airport Runway Run officially launched the Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal. More than 100 runners took part in the event, raising $11,500 to kick off the appeal. 

Ways you can get involved:

Dinner at Dusk Hangar Dinner
Together with Ronald McDonald House Charities and Hawker Pacific, we will be hosting Dinner at Dusk on Thursday 8 December 2016 at 6.30pm. This unique event is set to be a Christmas calendar highlight, with sweeping airfield views at dusk, providing the perfect opportunity to celebrate the festive season while supporting those in our community who need it most.
