We are deeply happy to announce a 25 thousand dollars donation to our cause! This time, from the Coopersmith Family Foundation. Find more about them below.
The Maroondah Hospital Business Cluster is an initiative of the Eastern Health Foundation and the Coopersmith Family Foundation. Members include Coopersmith Family Foundation, Ringwood Mazda, Ringwood Volkswagen, Yarra Valley Motor Group, Buildcept, Good Guys Bayswater, Mark Leonard Plumbing and Noel Jones Ringwood, and Eastern Health.
Each year the group collectively donates approximately $80,000 to Maroondah Hospital and celebrates its achievements at the annual Wandin Rustic Dinner, held at Brett and Kat Coopersmith’s garden property in Wandin North. Over $450,000 has donated since 2011 to the highest areas of need in the hospital.
In 2016, the group has decided to contribute $25,000 to support the Ringwood East & Heathmont Community Bank branches, Bendigo Bank coolheads fundraising campaign.
Brett Coopersmith emphasises:
“The Maroondah Hospital is part of the fabric of the community. This group aims to set an example for local businesses who have benefitted from the patronage of the community, and encourage more businesses to give back by supporting their local hospital. As a giving circle, we can combine our giving and make a more significant contribution to the hospital. Ringwood East & Heathmont Community Bank branches, Bendigo Bank coolheads fundraising campaign to implement scalp cooling services free of charge at Maroondah Hospital is setting a great example of how the community can partner with their local hospital to improve the health and wellbeing of our community. We are proud to contribute to this most worthwhile campaign that provides women receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer an opportunity to retain their hair.”
We from Coolheads and all Victoria community can only thank to each one of the people involved in making this happen. Hundreds of patients will be benefit from this single act.
And don’t forget: all support is welcome (and still needed). If you can’t make a 25k donation, try donating 25 dollars instead. Is also deeply appreciated. 😉
