Host a Bun in the Oven event, or simply bake, and help raise much needed funds for Gidget Foundation Australia.

This October to February, we invite you to gather with family, friends or colleagues to host an event in support of Gidget Foundation Australia. A Bun in the Oven event can be as simple or as special as you choose. You could host at home with friends and family, in the workplace with your colleagues and teams, or at a local park with your community. 

If you would prefer to simply bake, we invite you to grab your apron and favourite sweet treat recipe and bake a difference. Simply bake a special treat and make a donation or invite people to donate all in the name of making a difference in the lives of those who Gidget Foundation Australia supports. Don’t forget to share your baked treats on social media and tag #bunintheoven
