MayDay is an annual sports-themed charity fundraising lunch to be held in Melbourne during the month of May and organised by the Corcous Club. The purpose of the event is to not only raise funds for a chosen charity but also to raise its profile within the community. We hope that all funds raised will make a significant impact to those in need and we are very pleased to have donated close to $700,000 to our chosen charities since our first event 10 years ago.
The Corcous Club was initially formed in 1999 by a group of friends who started their careers in Melbourne during the 1990’s. The club allows us to continue to foster relationships and support each other professionally. We now seek to answer the call of charity and make a positive charitable contribution to Melbourne. The Corcous Club is a not for profit association and donates 100% of funds raised to its chosen charity. Current club members include: Jonathan Bayes, Will Bird, Sam Claringbold, Andrew Cowlishaw, Campbell Jackson, Richard Jamieson, Peter Kendy, Cameron Morcher, Daniel Peterson, Stuart Teasdale, Richard Thomas, Haydn Vella and Andrew Waddell.

SALT – Sport and Life Training is a not-for-profit organisation that facilitates culture, education and leadership training programs into local, grass-roots sporting clubs. Experienced facilitators deliver highly interactive programs including Wellbeing & Mental Health, Empowerment, Leadership, Drugs & Alcohol, Sports Parenting and Positive Coaching.
The next MayDay charity lunch will be held on Friday 17 May 2019 at the Regent Plaza Ballroom on Collins Street.
The event commences at midday and features interviews with a Damien Hardwick (Richmond Coach) and Alastair Clarkson (Hawthorn Coach), a charity auction and lunch. We anticipate that the event will finish at 3.00pm with drinks to be held at a nearby location after the event.
