FAQ

Pie Night

Can anyone have a pie night?

Yes! Anyone anywhere can have a pie night (or day)

The sky’s the limit when it comes to ideas for your pie day, pie night, or morning/afternoon tea. 
Pies can be integrated with footy tipping celebrations, after work get togethers, lunchtime, trivia nights or even after footy training. 

 

How big does my pie night have to be?

Your Biggest Aussie Pie Night can be as big or as small as you want to make it. It can be your regular Sunday night dinner with your family, a pie night at your footy club or pub, a work afternoon tea or just having a few friends over for a few drinks. It’s your pie night- how you want to go about holding it is completely up to you.

How do I get my pies?

Buy some pies or grab a recipe and create your own little beauties: apple, cherry, veggie or meat. Whatever you fancy, every slice makes a difference.

Maybe get everyone coming to your pie night to bring along their favourite. Even party pies are a great idea for a Biggest Aussie Pie Night.

What if I don't like pies?

Then don’t eat them! The essence of the Biggest Aussie Pie Night is for people everywhere to get together and raise money for a good cause. Have sausage rolls, have dips and chips- if the only pie at your pie night is the Challenge “Feel Good Pie” then that’s enough for us.

How do I raise money?

Organise a raffle, an auction, sell pieces of your “Feel Good Pie”, charge an entry fee or simply ask everyone who attends to make a donation. How you raise money to support kids and their families living with cancer is up to you.
