Run entirely by volunteers and established in 2012, Baw Baw's Biggest Ever Blokes BBQ has now raised more than $1.7 million in the Baw Baw region, as the committee seeks to heighten prostate cancer awareness and other health initiatives.
They raise much needed funds to encourage early testing and reduce prostate cancer-related deaths in the West Gippsland region. Funds raised are distributed both locally to support the West Gippsland community and nationally to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
The Biggest Blokes BBQ also supports the provision of first aid and mental health awareness training to local schools and community groups, including Baw Baw Live4Life.
