Queensland Racing Drivers Association (QRDA) today showed their support for the Children’s Hospital Foundation by presenting a cheque with funds raised from 2015.
The QRDA have been supporting the Children’s Hospital Foundation for over 15 years.
QRDA President, Chris Donnelly, and Improved Production Queensland committee member Brett Batterby, were on hand to present the cheque to Donna Whiteley, the foundation’s Partnership Coordinator, this morning at the new Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Southbank.
“The CAMS Queensland circuit racing motorsport clubs have been a great supporter of the Children’s Hospital Foundation for the last 15 years. All proceeds raised from our XMAS Party fundraising goes towards vital research, new equipment, and the provision of entertainment, care and support for sick kids and their families. As coordinator of the donations, the Queensland Racing Drivers Association Inc. in particular prides itself on supporting the Children’s Hospital Foundation as our nominated charity”, Donnelly said at the presentation.
Last year $5,100 was raised by QRDA via the annual Christmas party where raffle tickets were sold along with an auction, which had prizes donated from fellow racers and various companies.
This year the QRDA is again looking for prizes that can be donated so they can continue improving the life of the kids and their families going through tough times.
To support the QRDA in their fight to help these kids, please contact Chris Donnelly for information.
