A welcome COVID-19 safe event
ANZ SA state manager Brendan Rinaldi says the event which included a major raffle and charity auction, with prizes including a new Toyota Corolla, and travel, entertainment, media, food and leisure packages “exceeded expectations”.
“After a tough 2020 it was amazing to see 750 people, including more than 100 local businesses, getting together in one room to support a number of local charities,” he said.
“In true SA style, wine was the most sought-after item of the live auction, with a Dowie Doole winemaking experience selling for $27,000 and a Saint & Scholar, Kaesler and Crafers Hotel donated food, wine and accommodation package selling for $30,000.”
The ANZ Community Ball was cancelled last year due to COVID-19 but in 2019 raised $226,000 for local charities.
