Gateways named Adroit Geelong Charity Golf Day Capital Grant recipient.
Adroit Insurance and Risk, along with our community partner the Geelong Community Foundation, will host its 18th Annual Charity Golf Day at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads on 21st November 2019. We are proud to say the event has grown to one of the largest in the Geelong fundraising calendar, with teams of four coming together to compete for the prestigious Meatball Cup raising much needed funds for the Geelong Community.
On Thursday 18th July, the team at Adroit held a “Pitch Night” at the Sawyers Arms Hotel to select the recipient of the $100,000 Adroit Charity Golf Day Capital Grant. Three fantastic community organisations all pitched for the Grant and we are pleased to announce that Gateways Support Services were the successful recipient.
Gateways Support Services is a community organisation that has been making a positive difference in the lives of children and adults who are living with a disability. The funds will go towards the project of renovating seven units for some of Geelong’s most vulnerable young adults.
Rosemary Malone, from Gateways made the pitch and made mention to a young man “I asked him this week what he is looking forward to he said he wants his own key to his own home. He wants his friends to be able to come over. He wants his own garden and a garden shed where he can keep his tools and he wants a dog.”
Adroit Insurance and Risk could not be happier to support Gateways and managing Principal, Darrell Fenton commented “We are thrilled to announce Gateways Support Services will be receiving the 2019 Adroit Charity Golf Day Grant.”
“Disability housing is such an important issue in our region and this project will make such an important difference.” Mr Fenton continued.
The Adroit Community Golf Day is being held on Thursday 21 November 2019 at 13th Beach Golf Course, Barwon Heads. If you would like to show your support for this amazing cause by offering a donation or sponsorship, please contact Josie Nadile on firstname.lastname@example.org.
