Show Your True Colours with Civilex

Civilex is participating in its third Footy Colours Day event on Friday 7 September.

In 2016 we raised $550 but blew that completely out of the water in 2017 with a phenomenal fundraising effort of $15,093. And this year…the target is $20K.

Civilex Project Manager and Footy Colours Day organiser Nick Loucaides says, “This year we’re aiming even higher with a target of $20K and organising social BBQs that will take place on Friday 7 September at our Spotswood head office and our very own Civilex BBQ truck (see our previous post on the Chevy BBQ truck at Lorne) will make its way to Civilex’s CD9 (Caulfield to Dandenong level crossing removal project) construction site in Murrumbeena, with other BBQs organised at Metro Tunnel project and possibly another site location so stay tuned for details.”

The day is all about coming together and raising funds for Fight Cancer Foundation where money raised helps young learners gain access to smart technology to help them stay in touch with their school while they receive treatment for cancer.

You can donate to our Footy Colours Day fundraising page.

Last year the BBQ was held at the Civilex Pakenham HCMT Project and was amazing with participants expressing their joy at the number of Civilex suppliers and clients jumping on board and participating in fundraising for such a great cause together. “The day was a big hit on our construction site in Pakenham and once we got the online page going we really started to gain some momentum and everyone jumped on board! Thirty-six related businesses and individuals really got behind the cause and contributed to our fantastic overall result.”

2017 Footy Colours Day was an awesome team effort raising $15,093. This year the target is $20K!

And this year we want to raise $20K! Will you help us?

All you have to do is join in the fun – wear your footy colours, come along to one of our BBQs, share the cause and help us raise funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation.
