BRUCE LYNTON CHARITY BALL TURNS 15
2 February 2015,
THE Bruce Lynton Charity Ball will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2015, aiming to raise even more money for organisations such as the Cancer Council, Guide Dogs Australia, Surf Life Saving, and Youngcare.
The event, run by Gold Coast car dealership Bruce Lynton, raised $118,000 last year and has raised over $1.5 million since its inception.
The fundraising this year will come from a $165-per-person golf day on May 15 and the $230-per-person charity ball on May 16.
Bruce Lynton Automotive Group dealer principal Beric Lynton says the event receives "incredible support" from local and interstate businesses.
"The fantastic items donated over the years and the money raised this year alone shows just how strong the community and corporate support is for such worthwhile causes, despite these difficult economic times," he says.
Sponsors for 2015 include the John Flynn Private Hospital, RACV Royal Pines Resort, Carlton and United Breweries, creative agency Csquared Design, lighting experts The ULA Group, and event organisers Solution RED.
The 2014 ball was the first to support charity foundation Men Of Business, which was founded by influential business owners on the Gold Coast to provide mentorship for at-risk teenage boys.
Bruce Paige and Melissa Downes from Channel Nine hosted the event, while Australian rockers The Choirboys headlined the entertainment.
It attracted over 700 guests and sold 213 items at the silent auction, plus another 12 items worth over $7500 in the grand auction.
