Record fundraiser anything but par for the cause
Last week we hosted our 16th Annual Charity Golf Day at 13th Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads, and we’re thrilled to announce we raised $105,376 for Bethany Community Support.
Not only did we raise a record amount, but the incredible efforts from the day saw total funds raised over the event’s 16-year history reach the amazing milestone figure of $1,000,000!
The inaugural Adroit Golf Day Capital grant in conjunction with the Geelong Community Foundation was originally set at $100,000 but the generosity of local businesses and organisations saw the final total reach an astonishing $105,376. The total funds raised will go to Bethany Community Support to develop a men’s centre.
The men’s centre will be the first of its kind in Victoria, providing a suite of services in the prevention of and response to family violence. The services will include behaviour change programs, counselling, fathering programs and mental health assessment and treatment – filling a gap in the community’s response to such issues.
Adroit Insurance Group Managing Director, Andrew Locke, was delighted with the result, thanking the businesses and organisations who donated in such a generous manner.
“For the Geelong community to have supported this event over the past 16 years, raising more than $1,000,000 to date, is a milestone achievement we can all be very proud of.”
Our thanks to all of our wonderful staff, sponsors and community partners who volunteered their time and resources helping us to reach this fantastic milestone!
