David Wolf lost his battle with brain cancer at age 23.
The Wolfy Foundation honours his life by serving people living with brain cancer – their families and friends.
Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in adults aged under 40 in Australia and kills more children than any other cancer.
However very little is known about brain cancer, what causes it or how to treat it effectively.
The Wolfy Foundation is teaming up with 10×10 to raise funds and awareness about brain cancer in a special event on Thursday 27 May at Tattersalls Club, Hyde Park.
So, how does the event work? All you have to do is:
- Make a pledge to attend. Your pledge is your tax deductible donation which doubles as your ticket.
- Come along to the event on Thursday 27 May at Tattersalls Club in Hyde Park, Sydney.
- Learn about three amazing charities.
- Vote for the charities you want your pledge to support.
- Maybe buy some raffle tickets, bid on an auction item, become a volunteer, or just have a great evening in support of a great cause!
The David Wolf Research Grant in partnership with Cure Brain Cancer Foundation are striving to rapidly increase brain cancer survival and improve the quality of life for people living with this disease.
Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is the leading organisation for brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness in Australia. Their vision is a cure for brain cancer. They forge global collaborations to ensure Australians can benefit from breakthroughs no matter where in the world they occur.
One Eighty was founded by Paris Jeffcoat and Leanne Westlake in response to a number of youth suicides that were occurring on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. In particular, it was the suicides of two young men in Paris’ cohort from high school – that catalysed the creation of the organisation.
Knowing that suicide is preventable, Paris Jeffcoat and Samantha Callender have been running the organisation together since 2017. The young founders have a vision for a future free of youth suicide.
Two Good began as an ad-hoc Kings Cross cook-out for the area’s less fortunate. They started as a road-side barbecue that has evolved into Australia’s first organic soup kitchen. They are committed to serving clean food that’s grown, sourced and prepared with respect.
In 2015, they launched ‘Eat one, treat one’ – for every meal purchased, they gave an identical one to a local women’s refuge for domestic violence survivors. They are dedicated to restoring a sense of self-worth in the women they serve.

10×10 is powered by young professionals who have volunteered their time and resources to launch a crowdfunding event to support charities doing compelling community work.
10×10 connects volunteers at a local community level and together they produce live crowdfunding ‘Shark Tank’ style events which are attended by 100+ people. Each committee identifies three grassroots charities and invites them to pitch for funds from the event audience.
The event is supported by 10×10 – a 100% volunteer run organisation working to empower a new generation of passionate philanthropists and create a sustainable movement for grassroots giving.
