From our CEO, John Kernahan
This morning I was fortunate enough to have been invited to participate in an effort to raise some much needed funds for the development of a Cancer Wellness Centre through the Flinders Foundation through Mix 102.3.
The crux of the story was each CEO was to remain in a POD on the Ferris Wheel at the Garden of Unearthly Delights until they had raised $5000.
I had given 5 of our key sponsors notice in an email that I needed them to dig deep to which they all agreed leading me to think I was off the Ferris Wheel in relatively short time.
Unbeknown to me the sponsors then colluded to honour their pledges but to drip feed the donations so I would be in the POD longer than anticipated.
I appreciate their humour and what’s more I appreciate their contribution. On behalf of The League, I would like to thank Channel 9, On the Run, Coke, Catch.com.au and Vodafone for their contributions as well as the private donations from those who felt the urge.
Vodafone have also been good enough to donate 5 UE Booms to the cause to be auctioned off to continue raising money for Kerry’s final wish.
Our League is doing one of two things. It is either batting way above its weight or we are starting to see what strength we really do have in our community.
I suspect it is the latter.
Thanks to all
