The Charity Brunch is an annual fundraiser held during the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Traditionally a ladies-only event, funds raised at the Brunch (to a maximum of $20,000) go toward a carefully chosen grass roots project in country NSW that will have a positive social and economic impact on the broader community around it.

The vision of the Charity Brunch is to create holistically healthy regional communities so that NSW’s agriculture industry can thrive.

The mission of the Charity Brunch is to support rural communities with infrastructure to better the overall emotional, health and general well-being needs of the community.

To date, the Charity Brunch has raised over $230,000, with proceeds going to support communities including Parkes, Baradine, Inverell, Young, Bobadah, Condobolin, Binalong, Kempsey and Armidale with a variety of infrastructure and education needs.
