Annual Olivia’s Place Events
Olivia’s Place holds two annual events, the first earlier in the year celebrating motherhood (Motherhood Luncheon), and the second in August in the lead up to celebrating Father’s Day. Our events are planned around getting our community actively involved in supporting local families, and having a bit of fun while doing so. If you are interested in participating in either of our annual events as either a supporter or a volunteer, please contact us today!
Want to help throughout the year?
Grab a Baby Bottle
We have some extra large baby bottles to help you fundraise for us. If you'd like to get together with friends, work colleagues, or other sporting / social group - get in touch to grab a bottle and fill it with coins or cash for Olivia's Place at your next event. You might even see these on local business counters - if you do please sling a few dollars our way - thanks!
To register your interest to host a baby bottle at home or at your place of business, please contact us.
Baby Shower Blitz
This fundraiser is a LOT of FUN! For this one, we ask you to host a Baby Shower for an unknown mum and an unknown baby. Get together with your friends, family, work or social group and have a party. Specific gifts (ask us for a list) are donated with the gifts coming back to Olivia’s Place to be packaged into gorgeous baby bundles that are provided for FREE to parents-in-need.
Baby Bundles as a result of our Baby Shower Blitz fundraiser are given out to parents in a variety of ways:
- Direct client contact in our centre
- Through the local hospital Maternity Ward
- Through local General Practitioners
- Through other local supportive family services
If this sounds like something YOU want to be a part of, register for more information today!

This is a highly sought after and well attended event so be sure to look out for it and grab tickets as soon as they're available - they sell out fast!
