Event Highlights

 

Kick for a Cause

The Kicking Comp is an amateur goal kicking comp challenge where we invite the community to kick goals until everyone is eliminated, and only one person remains (we may organise different categories to make it fair and have category winners). You can familiarise yourself with our Kicking Comp's terms and conditions here.

 

Family Entertainment

Engage in a variety of fun activities such as Live Music (DJ + Choir), Face Painting, Bubble Party, Footy Games with Auskick and others. There's something for everyone, from kids to adults, to enjoy throughout the event.

 

Community Market & Cafe

Explore a lively market featuring local businesses. A portion of the proceeds from the market will contribute to our fundraising efforts, enabling us to make a positive impact in our community.

Please note that The Lockleys Oval Cafe will be open during the event if you wish to purchase food and non-alcoholic drinks. The bar will not be open.

 

Guest Speakers

Listen to inspiring individuals who will share their experiences and knowledge on maternal mental health. This is an opportunity to foster empathy and understanding within our community.

 

Raffle and Silent Auction

Participate in an exciting raffle and silent auction featuring items and services generously donated by local businesses. This presents a chance to raise additional funds for our cause and have a bit of fun in the process.

Please let us know if you would like to donate an item for our Raffle or Silent Auction.

 

Quiet Zone

For those who may feel overwhelmed by everything happening around them but still want to participate, we are seeking a partner to sponsor our 'quiet zone.'

We hope to make this available to our community on the day. Alternatively, there are plenty of quiet areas at the back of the oval or near the playground.

 

Sun-Smart

We will provide some shade around the oval; however, there won't be any umbrellas near the kicking competition zone. Please ensure you wear a sun-smart outfit and sunscreen to stay protected.

Partnership Opportunity

 

As a grassroots charity, we rely on the support of our community and businesses to further our mission, including events like this.

 

Sponsoring this community event is an opportunity for your organisation to demonstrate its commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of mothers and children during their critical early years—the most important year for a child, yet the most vulnerable year for a mother.

 

Every mother and child in our community matters, and it's crucial that we come together to amplify our message and make a positive impact on the lives of South Australian families.

 

Please understand that your sponsorship has the power to make a significant difference in the lives of mothers and children during their early years. We deeply appreciate every contribution, whether financial, in-kind, or as prizes. Your support enables us to create a special event for our community and continue providing our free evidence-based programs.

 

Three Partnership Options Available

 

Financial Partner

As a financial partner, you will be helping us create a special day for our community. Your generous support ensures that the event is fun-filled and runs smoothly, making a positive impact on the lives of mothers, their families and our community.

 

In-Kind Partner

Whether you provide event essentials, contribute to our community market, or support the Family Entertainment, your involvement will help us maximise our resources for a meaningful cause.

 

Prize Sponsor

As a prize sponsor, your products or services will take centre stage as exciting rewards. Participants in the Villagehood Kicking Comp will aim for victory, and your prizes will add an extra layer of excitement. Additionally, your contributions to our raffle and silent auction will play a vital role in fundraising for our charity, making our event even more impactful.
