Cocktails for a Cause – Manly 2021 (CFCmanly), is a collaboration between four bayside small business owners, with the aim of raising over $70,000 for bayside charity BABI Youth and Mental Health Services.

What started as a pre-Christmas lunch between friends has grown into an iconic community event, powered by people who share a vision: to celebrate friendships and community with a purpose.

Now in its fourth year and with more than $65,000 in funds raised, CFCmanly has become the largest charity event on Brisbane’s bayside, with 1000 guests expected to attend this year. Ticket sales in the first three days totalled 500 tickets – a great early indication of support for this fantastic event.

CFCmanly directs 100% of profits to a different charity each year. In 2021 the charity unanimously voted as most worthy for support was BABI. The goal is to raise $70,000 to fund a new drop-in service for young people and their families at times of crisis. Families need immediate support, not waiting lists.

This year’s fundraiser will see guests fulfil their dreams of travel with a Havana Dreaming themed lawn glowing with festoon lights, roaming entrainment, a vibrant live big band and aromas from a Cuban-inspired delicious food market (main meal) and of course, stunning cocktails!

2021 tickets are $110 and include:

  • stunning styled event under the stars
  • live big band
  • welcome cocktail
  • dinner served from Cuban-inspired food market stalls
  • prizes, raffles and more
  • plus a chance to win a VIP pre-party courtesy of Yachtshare

The event will be held on Saturday 13 November 2021 5:00 PM – 11:00 PM, Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, 578 Royal Esplanade, Manly.
