Brain cancer is a cause close to our heart. It kills more children than any other disease and survival rates have barely changed in 30 years.

We don't know what causes it - it seems to happen at random.

Join the movement to find the cure.

Dine For A Cure 


Dine For A Cure is a Melbourne-based committee of volunteers who have all lost loved ones to brain cancer. We came together in 2011, determined to do something to raise much-needed funding.


Thanks to the help of our wonderful supporters and donors, we have raised over $1.6 million for crucial brain cancer research.

Dine For A Cure is the signature evening of the year for Melbourne's brain cancer community. 

We dine, dance, and donate to raise much-needed research funds for brain cancer.

It's an elegant evening of fine food and wine, wonderful prizes, and fantastic live entertainment.

You are warmly invited to join us to support those living with brain cancer, to remember fondly those we have lost, and to raise the funds we need to find the cure.
