Residents at Aveo Riverview, Aveo Leisure Court, Aveo Carisfield, Aveo The Haven, Aveo Crestview and Aveo The Braes in Adelaide have all recently participated in wine tasting and fundraising for Aveo’s charity of choice, Project Pink.
Residents across the nation were invited to design wine labels in a competition for Project Pink. The winning label designs were available for residents and staff to purchase, with a portion of profits going to Project pink.
Now, in its third year of fundraising; residents, staff and partners across Aveo’s 93 communities are coming together once again to raise money to support UQ Diamantina Institute Group Leader, Dr Fiona Simpson, and her lab’s ground-breaking research project.
To date, money raised has provided vital funding to ensure Dr Simpson’s lab can continue to operate and ensure it is best placed for the next stage of their research. If successful, their trial could revolutionise the treatment of aggressive cancers like triple negative breast cancer and secondary head and neck cancer.
October is the official pink month and this year we hope to raise a $150,000 throughout the year. All funds go directly to Dr Simpson’s lab and Aveo Group will match dollar for dollar on all funds raised by our residents and staff.
