In another generous display of support from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles corporate network for Women in League Round, Premier Partner – Shaw and Partners Financial Services is offering to match up to $25,000 in charity donations from Sea Eagles members, fans and fellow corporate partners.
As previously announced, Shaw and Partners are donating their branding space on the sleeves of the special jerseys that the Sea Eagles will wear for their 2018 NRL Harvey Norman Women in League Round home game on Saturday 11 August v Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
Following this announcement, which also provided the opportunity for passionate Sea Eagles supporter and philanthropist Mrs Kay Van Norton Poche to generously invest in displaying the Melanoma Institute Australia logo on the sleeves of the special Women in League jerseys, Shaw and Partners are now offering to match, dollar-for-dollar (up to a cap of $25,000), any donations made to either Melanoma Institute Australia or McGrath Foundation by Sea Eagles members, fans or corporate partners and their staff.
Fellow Premier Partner – Lottoland will also be donating $1 for every person through the gates at the Women in League Round match to the McGrath Foundation and are additionally donating their naming rights of the venue, which will see it become McGrath Foundation Stadium for the week.
"As a Premier Partner of the Sea Eagles, we are delighted to be part of the club's celebrations and positive community activity planned for Women in League Round," said Shaw and Partners Co-CEO – Mr Earl Evans.
"It's great to see a number of other corporate partners including Lottoland getting heavily involved with Women in League Round initiatives and we too are looking forward to providing a contribution through the Shaw and Partners Foundation," added Mr Evans.
Sea Eagles General Manager, Corporate – Mr Luke Tucker praised the generosity of Shaw and Partners, saying "we continue to be pleasantly surprised by the generosity and genuine proactive support of our Premier Partner – Shaw and Partners."
"Shaw and Partners pride themselves on their company culture, something that is driven from the top and filters through naturally into their relationships with clients and partners including the Sea Eagles and our wider network of corporate and charity partners," added Mr Tucker.
Shaw and Partners will once again host the wives and partners of players, coaches and staff in the Shaw and Partners Chairman's Club for the Women in League Round home game.
To have the Shaw and Partners Foundation match your donation to Melanoma Institute Australia or McGrath Foundation dollar-for-dollar, simply email proof of your donation made between now and the Women in League Round home game in August to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your chosen charity will receive an equal donation from the Shaw and Partners Foundation, meaning your $1 dollar donation counts for $2 dollars.
