I recently held the Wingard Winter Warmer fundraiser at Patritti Wines. As well as a chance to present the 2018 Community Recognition Awards, we were also able to raise funds for Pancare Australia and Operation Flinders.
Local Sturt lad and Brighton High student Adam Beaumont will be embarking on the ride of his life this October, when along with his dad and a few other mates, he will ride his pushbike to the MCG, starting at Brighton Football Club. Adam will be riding to raise funds for Pancare Australia, following the passing of his mum Shaz from pancreatic cancer last year.
As part of my Winter Warmer this year, we helped raise over $4000 which will go towards Adam's fundraising goal of $20,000.

We also raised $400 which will go to Operation Flinders to assist students from the local area. You can find out more about Operation Flinders and what they do here.
