Aveo Crestview Resident Celebrates a Century
Centenarian Eddie Hounsome was born in London, fixed army trucks in Europe during World War II and spent time in Port Lincoln and Streaky Bay. But he says…
A very big thank you for being a part of Aveo’s Inaugural Project Pink Fundraiser. Your generosity has helped fight breast cancer to help us make pink just a pretty colour again.
Your support and the support of every Aveo community across Australia has helped us shine the torch brightly on breast cancer to raise awareness and importantly crucial funds to support life-saving research.
84 Aveo events were registered collectively, raising a total of $58,600 which is truly incredible! Aveo Group Limited has added an additional $20,000 donation to take the total fundraising tally to $78,600.
The ‘Project Pink’ events were varied, and in some cases very imaginative, with Bra Pong, Best Decorated Pink Bra’s, Pink Cocktails, Pink Bake Off’s, BBQ’s and raffles just to name a few. The greater Aveo community and local businesses also donated some great raffle prizes.
Monies raised have brought a meaningful and well timed injection of funds that will go towards supporting the PA Foundation’s Dr Fiona Simpson and her team. Their work focuses on a world first revolutionary breast cancer treatment project; a project which will potentially change the effectiveness of breast cancer treatment on a global scale forever.
Once again, congratulations to everyone who was involved in ‘Project Pink’ and raised money for the PA Foundation. We look forward to our Aveo communities across the country coming together once again in 2017 and having fun for a great cause.
“Thank you Aveo villages for your wonderful effort in supporting the Inaugural Aveo Project Pink Fundraiser this year.” Ita Buttrose – Studio 10 Host and Project Pink Ambassador.
