Young Henrys and friends host the ultimate BARBECURE

Some of the inner west’s best loved food and beverage brands came together to host a truly memorable community event.

Earlier this month, Young Henrys joined forces with some of the inner west’s most renowned food and beverage brands to host the ultimate BARBECURE. Held at Commune in Waterloo, all proceeds from the day were generously donated to Cure Cancer Australia in support of Australia’s brightest emerging cancer researchers working across ALL areas of cancer research and ALL cancer types.

Young Henrys was joined by Archie Rose, Urban Winery and MotherSky Coffee serving drinks all day to the thirsty crowd. The Mary’s team were back for the second year in a row with their famous Mary’s burgers and fries, whilst vegetarian food truck Vejoes treated guests to haloumi burgers, three-cheese quesadillas, smoked tofu burgers and vegan butter chicken curry wraps.

Local bands kept toes (and paws) tapping with live performances from Pavlova Gods, Reggie Banks, Hey Lady! and Mookhi, and Young Henrys reintroduced their limited edition Young Henrys tee, back by popular demand from last year’s event.


The Young Henrys BARBECURE also saw Cure Cancer Australia launch ‘Give it Up’, a new regular giving program that encourages Australians to give up one thing a month – be it a beer, coffee or treat – and make a tax deductable donation of $10 per month towards life-saving research instead.

“By signing up to the Give it Up regular giving program this Cancer Research Awareness Week, you will be joining us in our mission to help make this last generation to die from cancer” said Floyd Larsen, Cure Cancer Australia CEO. As an added incentive, Young Henrys shouted anyone who signed up to ‘Give it Up’ a beer on the day.

A truly fantastic day was had by all, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along and supported the event.

Particular thanks must go to Young Henry's for being such fantastic supporters of our cause. Thank you once again.

Together, let’s make this the last generation to die from cancer!
