Classic Holidays Rallies Behind Endeavour Foundation with Record Fundraising
June 7, 2017 1:14 pm
Classic Holidays’ CEO Ramy Filo and Resort Operations’ Morrison Duncan will get behind the wheel as ‘Team Classic’ for the fourth year in 2017, raising Dust and Dollars™ for Endeavour Foundation.
The duo will once again gear up the ‘Silver Gremlin’ and battle the eight day event in the Great Endeavour Rally Coral Sea Adventure from Yeppoon to Hervey Bay via Cooktown from 9 – 17 June, 2017.
Team Classic has raised more than $65,000 for the Endeavour Foundation since first taking part in the Rally, and they are just shy of smashing their 2017 target of $25,000.
Classic Holidays CEO Ramy Filo is calling on the support of the business and accommodation industry to donate and sponsor Car 63 for the journey along the Coral Sea.
“More than 300 people with a disability will directly benefit from the Great Endeavour Rally fundraising, and as a family-owned company, Classic Holidays is dedicated to giving back to our community and supporting those most in need,” said Mr Filo.
“We are looking to exceed our $25,000 target this year and the more funds we raise, the more we can assist individuals with disabilities living in regional communities through Endeavour Foundation.
“Having tallied up our previous efforts, we’re extremely proud to say our involvement in the Great Endeavour Rally over four years has delivered more than $65,000 and counting to this worthy organisation, thanks to the generosity of our supporters getting behind the cause.”
Holiday exchange provider, DAE, has again come on board as a Platinum sponsor of ‘Team Classic’ to support the team through their eight day adventure in far north Queensland.
“Team Classic are very grateful and fortunate to have received an extremely generous donation from our major supporters, including DAE, the MBA Partnership, BOQ Elanora and SignXtreme,” said Mr Filo.
“We encourage the business community to get behind the cause and whilst corporate logo sponsorships are open to those donating a minimum of $1,500, even the smallest donation will go a long way towards helping those communities in need.”
