What started out looking like a cold and bleak day in Melbourne turned into a magnificent afternoon for football. We were lucky to have 80 volunteers doing a bucket collection around the concourse of the MCG which raised $6400 and a job well done by all those involved
While all the volunteers were slogging it out on the concourse rattling tins SWCCF directors Susan Walter, Ian Juster and Allan McGuirk along with Karen Marshall (Walter) on right with Stephen “Sticks” Kernahan Carlton FC President were attending a very large and elaborate lunch as guests of Hyundai and Carlton FC
Volunteers preparing for the afternoons work
Attending both of these functions among a group of so many well respected ex players and supporters of Carlton FC was a great honour and made us proud to be part of this wonderful experience.
The funds raised by Hyundai Motor Company and Carlton FC
totalled $55,400. This is a fantastic result and we cannot thank both
Hyundai and Carlton enough for their professionalism and generosity, we just wish we could have walked away with a Carlton win.
