There are two ways to do this.

  • Host a party and collect donations at the event. Breast Cancer Care WA can even supply you will official donation envelopes. If your guests fill these out on the night we will have their details and be able to issue them all a personalised tax receipt and let you know how much was raised on the day. Contact Breast Cancer Care WA on (08) 9324 3703 to arrange official envelopes.

Breast Cancer Care WA can even help you with a personalised card for each table letting your guests know “In lieu of traditional wedding favours we have chosen to make a donation to Breast Cancer Care WA”.
