One of the longest running fundraisers around, Mooning has raised in excess of $200,000 for HIV/AIDS related charities in its 20-plus year history. Mooning is presented annually by The Laird in conjunction with Victorian AIDS Council and their hard working volunteers.

Hosted by Dean Arcuri, Mooning is a fun, cheeky event (and damn cheap!) and has raised tens of thousands of dollars for AIDS related charities over the last 20 odd years. With 100% of monies raised going to the David Williams Fund, there’s no better way to show your support for those living with HIV/AIDS.

Throw in a half time comedy act with rapid-auction and this is a great night of entertainment for bugger-all money. With past acts such as Lehmo, Denise Drysdale, Rachel Berger, Judith Lucy, Nath Valvo, Denise Scott, Kirsty Webeck, Yumi Stynes and Chrissie Swan, the cheap entry is worth it just for this part alone!

The Laird was at capacity once again for Mooning 2018, showing why it has been one of the highlights on the Midsumma calendar for nearly 30 years.

As the crowd jostled for prime viewing positions, backstage seven brave contestants prepared themselves for (possibly) the most revealing night of their lives… Of course we could go into detail about the wet-jocks, bare-arses and random inanimate objects, but let’s just say there were plenty of ‘oohs’, ‘aaahs’ and gasps throughout.

Congratulations Terence, our Mooning 2018 winner who has won a fair few fans plus a massive package courtesy of major sponsor TheGroomedManCo. Terence pulled out all the stops, combining searching for love with patriotism… confusing? You had to be there. Rumour has it there is video footage of Terences’ “flag-raising” performance.

Thanks to Brett, Mark and the team at The Laird and VAC for taking care of me at Mooning 2018. The David Williams fund is a great cause, as I'm sure we would all appreciate support in a moment of need.

Thanks to the Groomed Man Co. & Mannhaus for the fantastic prizes! Special thanks to Mannhaus for the pre-show advice; Nick and Nat, a farmer named Neil and Dean Arcuri..... for not pulling too hard! Terence, winner Mooning 2018

We are pleased to announce that Mooning 2018 raised over $6,500! Thanks to everyone who helped make it another success.

All contestants received a gift bag including products from The Groomed Man Co. Mannhaus and Victorian AIDS Council.
