Bankwest helps Redkite reach more families facing cancer

 

Bankwest at the Redkite Corporate QuizOctober 2013 Proud Redkite partner Bankwest has taken its support for children and young people with cancer even further by continuing its national sponsorship of Redkite's signature event, the Redkite Corporate Quiz, in 2013.


As National Sponsor of the Corporate Quiz, Bankwest helps ensure Redkite can hold this prestigious fundraising event to help families across Australia. The Redkite Corporate Quiz is an entertaining night, full of friendly competition that sees guests compete to be crowned their State's smartest company.

“We were excited and honoured to be part of the two recent successful Corporate Quiz events held in Perth and in Melbourne. Bankwest got off to a great start - tasting victory in the WA Corporate Quiz by taking out the crown of WA's Smartest Company. A number of Bankwest colleagues also kindly dedicated their time by volunteering on the night,” said Craig Spencer, Head of Community Engagement from Bankwest said.

Bankwest’s generosity continued at the Victoria Corporate Quiz. Along with its sponsorship support, Bankwest also donated a prize to the live auction - corporate box tickets to Day Three of the Ashes Boxing Day Cricket Test - raising an incredible $12,000. So successful was the sale, Bankwest immediately offered Day Two tickets which sold for $10,000.

This incredible generosity means that an additional $22,000 was raised on the night by Bankwest, enabling Redkite to reach out to more families who need access to vital emotional and financial support.

“Redkite continues to be amazed by the level of dedication of all of Bankwest's colleagues across the country. They are truly committed to helping more children and young people with cancer by supporting not only our signature event, the Corporate Quiz, but also through volunteering, workplace giving, staff fundraising, and funding Redkite's ‘Shout Out About Redkite’ Program annually,” said Tania Baker, General Manager, Partnerships and Community.

“We are incredibly grateful to Bankwest for their continued support and look forward to joining them at the Corporate Quiz events coming up in both Brisbane and Sydney.”
