Lantern Qualification

When your fundraising page total surpasses $100, you’ll secure your official lantern to light on the night.

Lanterns are limited to one per person, and only available to those who have funds raised on their personal Light the Night fundraising page.

To receive a lantern, each person registered for Light the Night must raise $100 or more on their personal fundraising page by 11 September 2022. Your lantern will be sent to the address you entered when you registered for Light the Night.

If you are hosting, be sure to keep an eye on how your registered guests are going and encourage them to start fundraising early so you can all light your lanterns together on the night.

You can contact us any time on 1800 500 088 if you need help fundraising or have any questions about your lantern.
