In support of World Cancer Day 2023, Ticketmaster Australia has paired with Cancer Council Australia and raised an impressive $27,832 in just four weeks.
Across four weeks in February and March, Ticketmaster Australia set out to raise funds for Cancer Council Australia as part of the global Ticketmaster World Cancer Day initiative. A donation upsell across all events, allowed fans to donate while purchasing tickets to their favourite events.
The funds raised will go directly to Cancer Council Australia. Cancer Council is Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every area of cancer. The donations raised by Ticketmaster will help people affected by cancer and brings the world closer to a cancer free future. Every dollar goes toward, world-class cancer research that improves the way cancer is prevented, detected, and treated, cancer support services that ensure no one has to go through cancer alone, cancer prevention programs that reduce the risk of cancer in our communities and advocating government to achieve positive improvements to cancer policies.
Gavin Taylor, Ticketmaster Australia Managing Director, said: “It’s so important that we play our part here in Australia to support the global World Cancer Day initiative. We are very happy with how much was raised this year and look forward to working with Cancer Council Australia again in the future.”
We would like to say a big thank you to Ticketmaster for the opportunity to partner for World Cancer Day this year. The support of Ticketmaster and their customers is helping us fund life-saving cancer research, provide key cancer information and support services, and enable us to empower communities with better ways to prevent cancer. We are thrilled by the result and the impact the funds raised will have on Australians affected by cancer.” Lyrian Fleming-Parsley, Head of Division, Fundraising and Communications, Cancer Council Victoria.
