About the Longest Table

The Longest Table is The Hospital Research Foundation Group's annual cancer fundraiser where you can host a night of fun and feasting to fight for a future free from cancer for your loved ones.

What's it all about?

When you sign up to host a Longest Table event, you'll be raising money to help fund urgently needed cancer research.

Every year, cancer takes the lives of 50,000 Australians. With your help, our passionate researchers will keep fighting hard, finding new ways to prevent, treat and hopefully cure this heartbreaking disease.

The official date for The Longest Table is July 22, 2023, but if this doesn’t suit then that’s OK! You can hold an event anytime until the end of August.

So come on, let's #ForkCancer together!

"In Honour of My parents"

Mardi decided to host a Longest Table to raise money for cancer research after both her father was diagnosed with breast cancer and her mother with uterus cancer.

“My parents are amazing, strong people and I appreciate them so much and wanted to do this Longest Table as a massive thank you and I love you!”
