Freo Dockers Foundation Ball: Farewell to Subi

Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF) ambassadors, Georgia Lowry and Zoe Manuel, were a part of a glamorous Fremantle Dockers Foundation Ball on Saturday night, 25 November at the Subiaco Oval.

The Ball was themed ‘Farewell to Subi’ and it was a poignant night as Fremantle players joined club sponsors, members and fans to farewell Subiaco Oval as AFL games move to Optus Stadium.

A tour of the oval kicked off the night, followed by an evening of entertainment on the centre square of the oval’s hallowed turf. Guests were led into the stands and change rooms, and had the opportunity to have a photo at their favourite player’s locker.

Fireworks lit up the night sky before guests were served a three-course meal while Aaron Sandilands, David Mundy Nat Fyfe and Matthew Pavlich shared their memories of the venue.

CLCRF ambassador, Zoe Manuel, said, “the best part about the night was definitely meeting a few of the players and also listening to everything they have done in the past at the oval.”

As one of the Associate Friends of the Fremantle Dockers Foundation, the CLCRF was proud to be represented by two of our lovely ambassadors. A big thanks to Beyond Bank who generously donated the tickets so that our two lovely ambassadors could attend.

Above and Beyond $10,000!

For the month of August 2017, Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc. (CLCRF) was one of three charity organisations competing in the ‘Vote for Good’ Community Reward Grant Program held by Beyond Bank.

The organisation that had the greatest number of online votes on the Beyond Bank website by the end of August would be awarded a $10,000 grant from the bank. While CLCRF were mostly in the lead, the race to gather votes from the community was tense as the other charities were not lagging far behind with their votes.

At the end of the month, we waited with anticipation to find out which organisation had the $10,000 grant. We were not told who the winner was in September, however Andrea Alexander, CLCRF’s Executive Officer, was advised to ‘prepare a speech – just in case’ for the Community Reward Grant Awards Night in October.

Beyond Bank held the award night on Tuesday 3 October, and revealed the winner of the $10,000 grant. We were thrilled to learn that CLCRF had gathered the greatest number of votes from the community and won the $10,000 grant!

“Firstly, thanks to the Beyond Bank staff – they were the ones that chose the charities to support in WA, secondly to our wonderful supporters for voting for us and lastly but not less – to Beyond Bank for this amazing grant,” Andrea stated.

CLCRF wants to thank Beyond Bank as well as each and every single person who voted for us in the program. We could not have won without your wonderful support! It is because of Beyond Bank and your vote that we now have $10,000 to add to child cancer research funds! Rest assured that CLCRF will spend the $10,000 wisely.
