Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant

PEOPLE PAGE_ADRIOT Insurance Group MD Andrew Locke, CEO Geelong Community Foundation, Gail Rodgers, CEO Barwon Child Youth

We will host our 16th Annual Charity Golf Day at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads on 23rd November 2017. Since its inception, the event has grown to one of the largest in the Geelong fundraising calendar, raising over $900,000 for local causes.

We have enjoyed a long, fruitful relationship with the Geelong Community Foundation, including as community partner of the Adroit Charity Golf Day. In this role, the Foundation has supported Adroit to distribute funds raised to worthy local causes, for example, $61,000 of the $100,000 total raised in 2016 was donated to Barwon Child Youth & Family (BCYF) to fund the refurbishment of the Street Surfer Bus.

In previous years funds have been donated to projects such as the development of the St Laurence Sensory Garden Project, Karingal Life Long Learning & Education room and St John of God Hospital. The funds raised from this charity event have supported many projects and will have far reaching benefits in our community for many years to come.

The establishment of the $100,000 Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant will provide a new significant grant opportunity for community organisations. The Foundation will offer the Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant Program to community organisations based on a number of requirements, with applications for the closing Friday 7th July 2017.

We are very excited for this new avenue established for giving back to our community. For all application information and requirements, please visit the Geelong Community Foundation.

Four ingredients for a great partnership

Great partnerships often start with a realisation of shared interests, some good company, a passion for the local community, and of course, a glass of wine!

We are proud to officially announce our formal partnership with the Geelong Wine Association for 2017.

Adroit Insurance Group (insurance brokers), Coulter Roache (lawyers), Fluid (brand, communication, digital design) and West Carr & Harvey (accountants) have come together to support and celebrate the Geelong Winegrowers Association and its members.

This partnership was born out of recognition of our shared commitment to supporting local growers in the region and helping bring the broader community together to celebrate their offerings and achievements.

The Geelong Winegrowers Association represents a community of over 35 fantastic wineries across the Bellarine Peninsula, Moorabool Valley and Surf Coast.

As part of this partnership, we will be jointly supporting two major annual events in the Geelong wine calendar, the Winter Shiraz Weekend and Toast to the Coast.

These iconic events are recognised for bringing people together, from near and far, to support and sample the best of our local region.

The Winter Shiraz Weekend takes place on 8 & 9 July 2017. Wineries throughout the region will be taking part by offering up open fires, award winning Shiraz and hearty winter fare.

Toast to the Coast is held over 4 & 5 November 2017 and is a festival of good music, fine local produce and award winning wines. Buses between the participating 25 wineries offer a hop on hop off service so you can relax and enjoy your day.

We are excited to be a part of this unique partnership and look forward to seeing you at these events!
