*The Tuxedo Junction Logo and Cancer Council Daffodil are well-recognised event and charity brands – and use of both logos is included in your Principal Sponsorship package. Whilst Tuxedo Junction is known amongst the Black-Tie ball fraternity, the Cancer Council Daffodil is widely-known and respected Australia-wide. Whilst brand alignment is somewhat priceless, the use of the Cancer Council Victoria Daffodil is usually only made available to select organisations under Cancer Council Guidelines as a highly-valued, standalone per annum investment.

Over and above direct economic benefits, Tuxedo Junction uniquely enhances your business and community engagement program. Your financial contribution will go directly to fund cancer research and/or patient support services, thereby directly aligning your brand to the cause.

In addition, Tuxedo Junction provides the ideal platform for executives to network with a broad range of business, government, and community leaders, along with their constituents.

Tuxedo Junction Committee members and Event Guests include leaders of Corporate, Government and community across Victoria. Supporters of Tuxedo Junction are passionate about Health Care, Community and Business – and, most importantly, the Cancer Research cause. Corporate support will enable Tuxedo Junction to raise funds that go directly to the research and support programmes improving the everyday lives and outcomes for cancer patients. Dedicated leaders in their fields are committed to the delivery of quality resources to the worthiest projects.

Cancer Council and Tuxedo Junction

Cancer Council is a highly trusted national brand with the key responsibility for raising awareness, supporting research and clinical programs, coordinating patient support services and leading national legislative debate relating to cancer health care issues. Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for innovation and is the lead Council for a number of technology initiatives.

Whilst Cancer Council receives government funding which supports meeting their extensive mandates, it also relies upon a range of corporate and community funding initiatives to support and continue this vital work, particularly in relation to research.

Tuxedo Junction’s History and Achievements

Launched in Victoria in 2006, Tuxedo Junction sits strongly alongside Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Girls Night In and Daffodil Day as an important fundraising initiative for Cancer Council Victoria. Whilst Tuxedo Junction is Cancer Council’s premier Black Tie function in Victoria, event promotion and fund raising activities extend to pre-and post-event. A unique element of the Tuxedo Junction Ball is the auction each year to name Research Awards and Post-Doctoral Fellowships. Some benefactors prefer to secure a Research Award prior to the event, as it is also offered as a bundled package offering which includes a table to attend the event. Over the last 13 years, more than $1.5 million in net funds have been raised from event attendees, many of whom are repeat guests to the event.

These funds have been reinvested in vitally needed cancer research and front line patient support services under the auspices of Cancer Council Victoria and the direction of the Tuxedo Junction Award Advisor, Dr David Speakman FRACS, Executive Director, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
