Intouch : In Touch Issue 77
www.alzheimers.org.au In touch Winter 2011 17 Graeme Samuel lunch We are looking forward to this month’s lunch with Graeme Samuel, Chair of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). With the recent announcement that Mr Samuel will be retiring from his position with the ACCC, this event is one not to be missed. Where: NSW Parliament House, Sydney When: 30 June, 12 - 2.30pm Tickets: (02) 8875 4626 Support opportunities We have a number of opportunities for businesses to partner or assist us in our fundraising ventures. Our events include Dementia Awareness Week activities, the Memory Walk, seminars, corporate golf days and more. We are also seeking donations of high-level auction items and raffle prizes for community-driven fundraising events. To support the work of AlzNSW, please contact the fundraising team. T: (02) 9805 0100 Bequests With our ageing population the number of people who will need the services of AlzNSW is increasing dramatically. Making a provision in your will to AlzNSW will ensure that we will be able to offer the same level of support in the future as we do now. How to make a bequest Simply make a will or update your existing will (you should check to see if it is out of date) and include a bequest to AlzNSW. A bequest could be a specified amount, a gift of a particular asset (such as shares or property) or a share of the residue of your estate. You should always seek the services of a solicitor or trustee company to prepare your will to ensure that it is correctly drafted and is practical in meeting your wishes. More information To find out more about how you can help AlzNSW through your will, or how your gift may be recognised appropriately, please do not hesitate to contact AlzNSW. T: (02) 9805 0100 At 1st Street we place a high level of importance on supporting the community around us. Dementia has such a widespread effect and we feel that it is our duty to get behind an organisation that impacts the same community we deal with every day. In doing so we will donate a percentage of each loan we sign and fund a community support group for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW. 1st Street has satisfied and delighted clients with our results over the years and this success has led to numerous accolades. 1st Street was recently ranked 1st in the Australian Elite Business Writers Awards and recognised by the Commonwealth Bank for being one of the largest residential loan writers in Australia. Win a car! The Community Chest Raffle is running again and it is your chance to win a new Toyota Yaris. Tickets are still $2, and booksellers will be in the running to win the best bookseller’s prize. Last sale of tickets will be Wednesday 6 July, and the raffle will be drawn on 20 July. For tickets or more information, contact Chris at AlzNSW. T: (02) 8875 4625 1ST STREET IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE A NEWLY FORMED PARTNERSHIP WITH ALZHEIMER’S AUSTRALIA. FUNDRAISING NEWS Thank you We extend a big thank you to all the members and friends of AlzNSW who generously supported our appeals last year. We also extend our gratitude to our regular pledge supporters who donate on a monthly or quarterly basis; knowing we have your support allows us to better plan our service delivery.
