On Friday the 21st June, we were incredibly fortunate to be invited to the Brisbane Broncos Old Boy’s luncheon. This year the Old Boys were celebrating the back to back premiership in 1993.
The Old Boys have this luncheon every year – they not only celebrate the Broncos achievements and their time together at the broncos, they also raise funds for charities. This year we were one of the selected charities that benefit from this day and we cannot thank Old Boy’s President, Bobby Cutmore and the Old Boys enough. Not only were we the VIP guests of the luncheon, where they made us the centre of attention (literally, with our yellow balloons) they donated a massive $5000 to us. This is the single biggest donation we have ever received, when all we had to do was attend a function. You can imagine how excited we were! In fact, so overwhelmed was Leigh when called on stage to receive the cheque that she was speechless!
The emotion shown on receiving the cheque was all that Bob wanted to see – thankfully 🙂
We hope to build on this relationship and continue with our mission in helping researchers prevent cancer and find a cure as well as assisting cancer patients and their families in their time of need!
Brisbane Old boys – we salute you!
