The Big Purple Dinner

Every November, we encourage New Zealaders to host The Big Purple Dinner in order to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research.

Register to host a Big Purple Dinner and you will be prompted through the setup of your own online fundraising page to help you collect donations from your dinner guests. You will also be emailed a free Host Pack with all the tips and resources to help you plan your Big Purple Dinner.

Choose your date, invite your friends and have fun planning your menu. Check out the recipes page for some inspiring purple food. But if you have your own favourite recipes, that's no problem - you can cook whatever you like!

On the site, there are handy resources for you to download including invitations, posters, name place cards, bunting, social media images etc. 

On the night of your Big Purple Dinner, dress up purple, have some fun and collect donations from your guests using your online fundraising page. You are not limited to just collecting donations. How about a raffle or a fun game to raise extra $$? Check out the fundraising ideas page for some tips!

Don't want to do a dinner? Prefer an afternoon tea? No problem! Not into cooking? Get a group of friends together and head out to one of the amazing restaurants supporting the campaign. Check the Eat Out page to find a restaurant close to you.

By getting involved in the Big Purple Dinner, you will not only be raising funds for life-saving pancreatic cancer research but will also help to spread awareness of this deadly cancer.
