Coates Hire sponsors 'Winter in the Sun Room' charity event
20 June 2012
Coates Hire is proud to be a principal sponsor of ‘Winter in the Sun Room’ – a charity cocktail event hosted by Kogarah City Council in support of the Gasnier Foundation.
The support of the Gasnier Foundation stems from Coates Hire’s commitment to the ethos of Corporate Social Responsibility and local community support. Coates Hire has a strong history of helping build a better future through supporting such great initiatives and charities.
The Gasnier Foundations’ latest event, ‘Winter in the Sun Room’, will be held on Saturday 23rd of June 2012 at the IVY Sun Room. The event aims to bring closer the goal of raising $3.5 million to purchase the first Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner for Sydney’s South.
PET is a powerful diagnostic tool which helps in the early detection of various cancers and diseases, improving the way in which many are detected and treated. Unlike CT or MRI scans, PET measure cell-level changes in an organ or tissue, allowing quicker decisions on whether lesions are benign or malignant.
Mark Gasnier and Dr Zoran Becvarovski founded the Gasnier Foundation in 2011 and ‘Winter in the Sun Room’ is one of many events to be hosted in aid of this worthwhile cause.
Coates Hire came across this charity and their incredible work, when a staff member, whose father has been diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and currently undergoing treatment, thought it would be a great cause for Coates Hire to support. The staff member recognised Coates Hire has a strong culture of being supportive and going that extra mile to back initiatives that really make a palpable difference in the lives of so many Australians.
As a result, Coates Hire has now supported a number of Gasnier Foundation events that are often ethnic themed to simultaneously celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity. Such events include previously held Greek and Serbian themed nights that have served up cultural delicacies and entertainment - all in the name of raising funds for charity.
