The Piggy Bank Appeal features a calendar of corporate and community fundraising events that are fun, engaging and all for a great cause to raise money for Very Special Kids.

The highlight events of the Appeal are:

Footy Fever Debate - Very Special Kids Piggy Bank Appeal

Footy Fever Debate

The annual Footy Fever Debate on Thursday 31 August promises to be a humorous and sometimes fiery debate between high-profile football personalities. The event, which was held in the MCC Members Dining Room at the MCG, aims to raise more than $200,000 for children with life-threatening conditions.
