The Macquarie Group has been an outstanding sponsor of the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim over the past five years. The Club is very pleased to report that Macquarie are to continue their association with us, re-signing as the major sponsor of this swim for another three years. We are very pleased to have this prestigious company supporting the world’s first life saving club.
In addition, the Macquarie Group also match sponsorship money raised by their employees. As a Macquarie employee, Dave Finnimore set up a Fundraiser called The Molokai Challenge with all the money raised going towards buying more boards and gear to encourage many more Club members to get out there in the ocean and improve their surf skills. The Bronte community supported it willingly and raised just over $25,000. On top of this, Dave arranged a matching donation from the Macquarie Group Foundation, who donated another $25,000 to Bronte SLSC taking the total raised to just over $50,000! Another massive thanks to Macquarie Group for their continued support here.
It would be remiss of us not to thank Dave Finnimore, for initiating this fundraiser and Macquarie’s donation, along with James McLennan and Jason Gavin for their fabulous efforts in completing this most arduous ski paddle across the Hawaiian islands.
