Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal

Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal

Sydney Airport’s Community Christmas Giving Appeal unites the airport community, local community and travelling public to raise funds for those in the community who need it most. Since 2012 we have raised more the $1 million for charities.

The 2016 Christmas Appeal with partner Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) raised a record $316,000 to support families caring for seriously ill children. The funds will be directed to the RMHC Westmead House and the Randwick House near Sydney Airport.

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 and activations.

Sydney Airport will soon be calling on applications to become the 2017 Christmas Appeal partner. Details will be communicated here soon.

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.

Buy a ticket or table, become a dinner sponsor, donate an auction item, bid at the auction or pledge on the night. For more information, please contact Michelle Burman at michelleb@rmhwestmead.org.au.
