The Big Clash cricket event will be returning bigger and better in 2018, and expanding to both Sydney and Melbourne, aiming to raise $100,000 for UnLtd’s charity partners.
The popular fundraiser is in its fourth year and has raised more than $130,000 to date.
In 2018, the event will expand to allow a wider cross-section of the industry to get involved. The next instalment will feature four teams – media agencies, creative agencies, publishers and technology firms.
Men and women, young and old, are invited to take part in what will be the biggest Big Clash yet.
Each team will be aligned with one of UnLtd’s charity partners raising much-needed funds to charities doing critical work with children and young people at risk. The tournament will finish with post-game celebrations and a charity auction.
“This is a hugely important event in the UnLtd calendar, and raises much-needed funds to support the exceptional work of our charities,” UnLtd CEO Chris Freel said.
Last year, the event raised $60,000 for two charities, BackTrack and Breast Cancer Network Australia.
BackTrack is a charity helping disadvantaged youth in regional communities who are simply having a hard time. The program gives vulnerable young people the practical and emotional support needed to stabilise their lives, help develop self-esteem and skills for work
The funding provided by The Big Clash last year has helped BackTrack build a new mobile office, teach practical carpentry training for their young people and provide weekend excursions, allowing many of the children a chance to see the sea for the first time.
The first Big Clash tournament will be held at Sydney University on Thursday 8 February, with a second tournament in Melbourne’s Fawkner Park on Thursday 15 February.
The Big Clash is the brainchild of Freel and Oliver Newton, national sales director at JCDecaux.
