Every year, La Trobe Business School students organize events for their ‘Event Project’ capstone subject, as an assessment. This way, students get the opportunity to get some hands-on, real-life experience in a professional environment. Profits from the organized event are all donated to The Cancer Council (for students who study at the Melbourne Campus), or The Otis Foundation (for students studying in Bendigo).

This year, there are two more events coming up:

Event: Warriors Against Cancer

‘Warriors against Cancer’ will be held on Saturday November 28 at La Trobe University’s Simpson Lawn and the Odeon. Participants will attend an hour long yoga workshop run by Ian Cresswell, a highly regarded yoga instructor from KX Yoga. Following the yoga session, attendees will enjoy a healthy and delicious morning tea which will be hosted by Ellie Lemons, a well-known model and nutritionist. We will also have a raffle at the event, which will raise some much needed funds for Cancer Council Victoria. There are raffle prizes up for grabs which consist of a luna park merchandise bag, 2 x unlimited passes to Luna park rides, 2 tickets to the Peninsula Hot Springs, a La Trobe hoodie and much more to come! The guest speakers that will tell their extraordinary stories, includes Ian himself as well as from cancer survivor, Camilla Inman. Joining us will be content creator, model and nutritionist Ellie Lemons, alongside The Voice Australia contestant, Sarah Valentine who will be playing a special acoustic set.

Refreshments, entertainment, guest speakers and a raffle competition (raffle tickets would be sold 1 for $5 and 3 for $10)
