Riviera supports St Vincent’s Institute Foundation
GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA; 2009: Real estate agent Barry Plant donated the use of a luxury Gold Coast apartment, Riviera donated the luxury of one of its prestige boats - and together they delivered $4000 for medical research at Victoria's St. Vincent's Institute Foundation's fundraising day earlier this year.
The prize was one of the most popular to be auctioned off at the Discovery Day Football Breakfast, the research centre's annual fundraising event, at which guests get to mix and mingle with both players and coaches.
The breakfast is held in the week prior to the AFL's Collingwood and St Kilda clash and raises money to support research into juvenile diabetes.
The event attracted more than 250 people and raised $50,000 for diabetes research.
"It was great to have Riviera's support of our Discovery Day Breakfast," says Robin Berry, chief executive officer of the St. Vincent's Institute Foundation.
The prize included a week's holiday at the luxury Runaway Bay apartment of Barry and Karen Plant, and a day out on a Riviera boat, with a champagne lunch.
"It was won by Daniel Capitanio, of Thornbury, in Victoria, who will no doubt enjoy the outing immensely," said Robin.
