Sponsorship news from Beechwood Homes

The team at Beechwood Homes have really outdone themselves raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation during this year’s World’s Greatest Shave which has them currently placed in 6th position on the Top Fundraising Teams National Leaderboard.

The events took place in 3 locations with professional hairdressers, Jasmine Anderson (of Jasmine Anderson Hairdressing) and Brooke Lowe (of Lil Redz Hairdressing) donating their time and expertise.

For team captain, Beechwood’s General Manager Wayne Barton, the charity lies close to his heart, “I recently lost my father to Leukaemia. In his final days I watched a man who I love, respect and admire suffer as a result of this horrible disease. As I stood by helplessly, I thought, what can I do to help him and the many others that are in the same situation? All I can do is hopefully raise some funds for research for more effective treatments and support for other families who are facing a similar situation to my own.”

The staff of Beechwood Homes, from all across NSW, rallied around Barton and his family to show their support. The team of 19 who signed up to shave, cut and colour their locks raised a staggering $21,000 by the day of the shave, far exceeding their initial goal of $5,000.

Managing Director of Beechwood Homes, Vic Cavasinni generously offered for Beechwood Homes to match dollar-for-dollar all funds raised by the Beechwood Team by the day of the shave. Not only did he did make this generous offer but he was also one of the members of the Beechwood Team who was brave and shaved his head.

Cavasinni stated, “I was so impressed with the efforts of all my staff, not just those who were brave but also those who gave generously and showed their support. It really does show that we are a tight-knit group. How could I not have the company support the team when the team supports the company?”

Contributing to Beechwood’s success were some of their suppliers: Beaumont Tiles, Trend Windows, Winnings Appliances, Antunes Lawyers, Austral Bricks, Nicsons Concrete, Costas, Savvas Leondas Enterprises Pty Ltd, Marando Solicitors, Redline Enterprises (Aust) Pty Ltd and Brickworks Building Products. Barton had also offered for the highest bidder to win the right to shave his head on the day. A bidding war between Beaumont Tiles and Trend Windows ensued, culminating with Beaumont winning the auction and shaving Barton’s head.

All in all, it was a great result for a great cause with the team raising a total of $48,214.44.

Beechwood Homes are proud to have been Platinum Sponsor at the 2015 Macarthur Ladies Night Out, a charity event that raises money for the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre.

Now in its 7th year, the Macarthur Ladies Night Out event has raised over $120,000 for the Centre. The money raised by the event will be donated to the Wig Library, supporting women who have lost their hair through medical treatments such as chemotherapy.

Nearly 250 women came together on Saturday 12th September in a room of pink to raise money for the charity. Hundreds of balloons were sold with raffle tickets attached to win items all donated to the charity, as well a silent auction and a range of other raffles.

Beechwood was proud to be a sponsor for the event and applauds the good work of the charity in supporting the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre.

Announcing the partnership, Beechwood’s Managing Director, Vic Cavasinni, said “The people of Newcastle and the Hunter deserve a team in the nation’s elite football competition and we are pleased to help out. We have been building houses throughout the Hunter and northern NSW for over 35 years. We are pleased to support the communities that support us. As builders, we know the importance of building on solid foundations. We believe that the new Jets are putting those foundations in place now. We look forward to the journey together.”

Jet’s CEO Mitchell Murphy said that finalising a partnership with such a reputable and respected organisation as Beechwood Homes represents a significant coup for the club. “Beechwood Homes are a highly professional company held in high esteem across New South Wales,” Murphy said. “Today we enter into the first year of what will hopefully become a long and mutually beneficial partnership with an organisation that truly cares for and delivers results for local people.”
