    Kick start summer in style!

    2019 is your year to get involved in Stratco National Patio Day!

    Fancy yourself an entertaining extraordinaire?  Or perhaps you just love an excuse to show off your patio?  

    Whatever your style, National Patio Day is your opportunity to bring family, friends, colleagues and your local community together to help fund Cancer Council’s important research, prevention, advocacy and support programs. Because when it comes to bringing a cancer free future closer, the difference is you.

    Host your event anywhere, any time on the day—just make sure you host it under the shade of a patio!

    When you register, we’ll send you your free host kit that contains everything you need to get started, like recipe cards, toolkits and decorations to look the part.

    So celebrate summer in the shade and host an event this National Patio Day!

    Sadly, most of us have been or will be impacted by cancer. One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and an estimated 15,229 will be diagnosed with melanoma of the skin in 2019 alone.

    But today, thanks to research funded by events like yours, more of us are surviving cancer than ever before. Almost seven in 10 Australians will survive at least five years after a cancer diagnosis.

    Fundraise today, make a huge difference tomorrow, and go in the running to win a Hafele Alfresco kitchen valued at $5,000 or a $500 Stratco gift card!
