The Million Dollar Lunch

Take your seat at a table of plenty and make a real difference to the lives of children with cancer.

The Million Dollar Lunch is Australia’s premier charity event, which raises funds for the Children’s Cancer Foundation over an afternoon of networking, fine dining and entertainment at the Palladium at Crown.

More than $15 million has been raised by The Million Dollar Lunch community since its launch in 2005. The success of the event is crucial to the ongoing work of the Foundation, which funds programs in cancer research, clinical care and family support.

The Million Dollar Lunch receives unprecedented support from its Cornerstone Partners – Crown Resorts, AFL, Qantas, Volvo and CrownBet, as well as The Million Dollar Lunch Committee and many donors and supporters.

The event is run with the utmost efficiency and all revenue and costs (including the time of the Foundation’s small administrative team) are fully disclosed.

  • 2016 – figures to be released shortly
  • 2015 – $2 million gross raised, total costs were limited to just 7% of that sum meaning that $1,870,002 net was generated.

Save the date for The Million Dollar Lunch 2017 – Friday, 11 August at the Palladium at Crown.
