The Pelt-a-Knight Cancer Council Fundraiser:

*Held at the conclusion of the tournament, directly after the heirs are wreathed.

The Barony of Innilgard has been shaken in recent years as many of our beloved members have been touched by cancer.

The Order of Chivalry honours those who have and continue to battle through their struggle with cancer by humbling themselves to brighten our future! The Pelt a Knight fundraiser offers the rare opportunity to throw squelchy ‘fruit’ at members of the Order of Chivalry for a donation to Cancer Council.

We will be supporting Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future, because 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

As we are sworn to protect the populace and there is no greater foe than cancer, we believe this is a worthy quest and ask for your support.
