Finnan’s Gift was set up by Alisa and Oliver Camplin-Warner to honour their son Finnan who was diagnosed in-utero with congenital heart disease (CHD) and passed away at just 10-days-old. The project aims to raise funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne and awareness for CHD, which is the leading cause of death in young children in Australia.
Touched by Finnan’s story, Ray White offices in Victoria raised over $75,000 to support Finnan’s Gift in 2014 and are fundraising again in 2015. Staff at individual offices have been challenged to raise funds as a team and individually to help reach this goal. They will be holding BBQ’s, bingo nights, cake stalls, chocolate drives, walk-a-thons and lots more activities over the next few months.

The EJ Whitten Foundation honours the legacy of EJ “Mr Football” who died after a long and public battle with Prostate Cancer. EJ was the first man of his era to give a voice to Prostate Cancer Awareness.
Since it’s inception in 1995, the EJ Whitten Foundation has raised over $7 million dollars for Prostate Cancer Research and Awareness.
We thank all our sponsors, partners and supporters for assisting us to find a cure for Prostate Cancer. The legendary EJ would be proud of our efforts.
The Objectives of the E.J Whitten Foundation are:
We aim to raise awareness of prostate cancer, through our numerous campaigns and events. An increase of awareness will hopefully result in regular testing and early detection.
As there are no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer, we strongly believe it is vital for a man to begin regular testing for the disease at the age of 50, or from the age of 40 if there is a family history of prostate cancer.
The Foundation hosts a variety of events each year, both in Victoria and interstate. At every event, funds are raised for research in to the disease.
Each year the Good Friday Appeal brings together people from all parts of the community to raise much needed funds for equipment, research and education to support the work of The Royal Children’s Hospital.
The strength of the Good Friday Appeal lies with the thousands of people who volunteer their time, expertise and creativity to organise fundraising activities throughout the year. Together they have raised more than $258 million for the benefit of the hospital since the Good Friday Appeal began in 1931.
The activities of the Good Friday Appeal lead up to an all-day telethon, broadcast live across Victoria on Good Friday and supported by the Herald Sun, Channel 7 and 3AW 693.
The Good Friday Appeal is a non-denominational, non-political organisation that exists solely to raise funds for the benefit of The Royal Children’s Hospital.
