A series of functions held throughout October by Commonwealth Bank in aid of the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia raised over $130,000. At the “Busting Out for a Cure” fundraisers, which were held in each mainland state capital, brokers and staff were encouraged to donate cash, buy raffle tickets and bid on auction items, which had been donated by suppliers, head groups, brokers and staff. Kathy Cummings, Executive General Manager Third Party and Mobile Banking says, “I am very proud of the way our staff embraced these events and absolutely amazed at the generosity of our business partners and suppliers.” Adver tisers Index Aussie OBC Bankwest 5 Bransgroves Lawyers 11 Enable HR Finance 33 Fast Group IBC Gold Seal 21 Homeloans 20 Homeside IFC NAB Broker 16,17,18 Pepper 9 PLAN Australia 3 QBE LMI 23 QPEX 45 Think Tank 34 Trailer Homes 51 Veda 12, 15 Victorian Mortgage Group 31 On your bike! Lend a second hand A team of cyclists from Vow Financial got on their bikes and raised almost $14,000 for The Smith Family charity at this year’s Around the Bay in a Day event in Victoria. The five-member crew, which included Vow Financial’s CEO Jeff Zulman, is now placed 9th overall on The Smith Family’s fundraising leader board, contributing to a $1 million total to be used to help disadvantaged children. Thousands of riders of all ages cycled on sections or the entire route around Port Phillip Bay in the 17 October event. Vow’s marketing manager Matt Mitchener said, “We not only had a great bunch of dedicated and determined riders, but also fantastic support from our broker and business network partners who got behind such a great cause.” Over 330 junior sporting clubs have benefited from Aussie’s Lend a Hand Scheme this year, and more are set to follow in 2011 after the brokerage announced the launch of Lend a Hand 2, which kicks off early next month. When a member of a local sports club completes a full appointment with an Aussie broker, $100 is donated to the member’s junior club of choice, and from December the scheme was extended to any local sporting club. Aussie’s founder John Symonds says, “We made a conscious decision to phase out our major team sponsorship in order to support the community at grassroots level. The Lend a Hand program is a fantastic way of raising funds for sporting clubs.” From left: Brad Melman (Beam Corp), Tony Pearce (Allied Access Financial Solutions), Peter Solohub (Vow Financial), Jeff Zulman (Vow Financial) and Simon Rutherford (Lawler Partners).
